There's the possibility that the Sport Satellite could have a 318 in it instead of the big block 383 or 440. I could be wrong, but I don't think any GTX's had 318's. Of course, the trim package would be different too. The GTX should have heavier torsion bars and suspension parts too. I'm 50 years old and have never heard of a Sport Satellite GTX. It's either one or the other.

Im not sure completely on the Sport Satellite but, the Satelite I believe were all 383 cars with optional trans and rear end and the GTX came with 440 only, the trans and rear end where the options. Other than that it was trim packages and suspension differences.

He's correct. It's either a Sport Satellite (SS) or a GTX, not both, but the SS came with a 318 also and the GTX came with the 440 and the 426 Hemi

Just to confirm this answer...I am 49 yrs old and I owned a cherry 1969 Sport Satellite with a 318... (back in 1978). I sold it a few years later. It was gun metal blue and nicknamed "BC" (for "Boulevard Cruiser"). I was 18 yrs. old and it was my first car. I bought for $400.00 cash.

I would love to find a mint GTX with a 426 Hemi.

From '68 onwards the standard engine in a Sport satellite was the 318. The 383 became an option.
