Vintage Motorcars is proud to present this 1967 Plymouth GTX.
The Plymouth GTX arrived on the muscle car scene in 1967 as Plymouth's serious contender; a hot rod version of the square Belvedere. The engine of choice in the GTX was the 375-hp, Super Commando 440-cid V-8, capable of 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds, with a quarter-mile time of 14.6 seconds and a top speed of 121 mph.
Due to its high cost relative to the Plymouth Road Runner, the GTX is relatively rare today. The cars were incredibly quick, but also invariably better equipped than most other muscle cars of the era, which makes good originals worth seeking out. Hemis are the rarest of the breed, and priced accordingly, but the 440 cars are generally easier to live with and provide an exhilarating ownership experience in their own rights.
This particular “Gentleman's Muscle Car” is a very nice example of a powerful street machine that won't break the bank. This car is sporting its original, numbers-matching 440 Super Commando V-8, and the extremely durable TorqueFlight automatic transmission. Both of which have been rebuilt for optimum longevity and durability.
On September 27, 1966; this GTX rolled off the assembly line in St. Louis, MO ready to be delivered to an eager buyer. This was the first year of the mighty GTX, and I have no doubt someone
was a very happy customer the first time he/she sat in the driver's seat.
This car was ordered in Yellow exterior with a striking white on black interior. As you can see from the photos; this Mopar was restored to 100% original colors according to the fender tag.
The Yellow exterior was redone in a highly professional manner paying careful attention to detail. If you are looking for a black stripe… keep looking! The fender tag shows this car to be a stripe-delete car, so the restorer made sure to keep it correct. Clearly; the trim and glass were properly removed prior to paint instead of taking a shortcut and simply masking off such items. The paint was laid over nearly 100% original sheet metal and is free of the typical waves or ripples you normally see in 60's Plymouths. Check out the detailed photos, and you will see correct and true gaps throughout the car as well as clean glass and chrome from front to rear.
The white bucket seat interior is a nice change over the typical black color we so often see. The interior is in excellent shape to mimic the exterior. There are some signs of wear around the center console, but really only enough to prove it is original. This is a factory A/C car that has been converted to R134 with an updated compressor for reliability and comfort. Everything from the headliner to the carpet is in highly presentable condition, and is truly a pleasure to sit in.
The original, numbers-matching 440ci / 375hp Super Commando V8 has been completely rebuilt and will make you a believer as to why these were called 'muscle cars'. This is an extremely strong running engine that is mated to what I believe to be the original 727 TorqueFlight automatic transmission. The 727 needs no introduction to any of you familiar with Mopars, but for those of you that are new to the game… these are highly dependable and durable transmissions!
All this muscle and class is sitting on a set of correct Magnum 500 wheels and virtually new BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires. This car was recently brought north from southern Florida, so it has not been subject to the harsh northern winters. With such options as bucket seats, A/C, power steering and the 440ci engine; this muscle GTX is a blast to drive while increasing in value!
