SUPER CLEAN GTX, BUILDHSEET, 440CI BIG BLOCK, RARE 4 SPEED CAR, ADDED A/C
This fast and handsome 1967 Plymouth GTX is one of those fully sorted muscle cars that's just a joy to drive. Get in, turn the key, and the big 440 fires easily and pulls the lightweight hardtop around with real authority. The fact that it offers powerful A/C, a comfortable interior, and great colors is only icing on the cake.
The angular styling of Mopar's intermediates was quite attractive, and the GTX was perhaps the best of them all. This one wears correct light yellow paint, a subtle color that's right for one of 1967's heaviest hitters. Combining black stripes and a matching vinyl top adds a bit of an aggressive look to the car, along with those hood scoops up front. The car was fully repainted in 2001 and still looks fantastic, even after two stints on the Hot Rod Power Tour, and you can easily see that they did the job right. Good gaps, clean bodywork, and a great gloss to the paint make this GTX stand out. Look carefully at the photos and note that the flanks are straight and ripple-free, evidence of lots of time spent block sanding and buffing the paint, and it shows nothing so much as a door ding today. All the chrome and stainless was restored as well, making the brightwork sparkle against the body like jewelry. Correct "Belvedere GTX" badges remain on the front fenders, and the tail panel has been beautifully restored, complete with bright red highlights in the trim.
Inside, you will understand why the GTX was called the "gentleman's express" with its upscale interior that's very masculine and definitely performance-oriented. Black buckets with fresh upholstery show correct (and ornate) detailing, with only the driver's seat showing any appreciable use. New black carpets, a fresh headliner, and correct door panels were also installed, so the interior looks virtually new in every way. The 4-speed manual gearbox wears a Hurst shifter with cue ball knob, and a set of vintage-looking auxiliary gauges and a Stewart Warner tach were installed on the steering column. The original Music Master AM radio remains in the dash, never "upgraded" to something else, but I suspect that the 440 will provide all the entertainment you'll need when you're behind the wheel. An under-dash A/C system was added and uses modern components, so it's effective and looks period-correct. In back, the trunk is neatly finished with a correct mat and a jack assembly stashed in the side.
But the real reason the GTX is so beloved is the 440 Super Commando V8 under the hood. Rebuilt about 5000 miles ago, it cackles and snarls like you'd expect from one of the most potent machines from an era where they were ALL potent. Up top an Edelbrock carb and intake are about the only deviations from stock, and it's hidden under an open-element air cleaner with reproduction decals. The original style cast iron manifolds were left uncoated, but that's easy to remedy and the Hemi mufflers underneath sound spectacular. It starts quickly and easily, idling with a very threatening burble from the polished tailpipes out back, and it pulls like a freight train through all four gears thanks to 3.54 gears and a Sure Grip in the Dana 60 out back. The suspension was rebuilt to police specifications and it's quite tidy underneath, showing only minor signs of use. The build sheet says it came with steel wheels and hubcaps, but today it carries Magnum 500s and 215/70/14 blackwall radials.
Documented with the original Chrysler Corporation Broadcast Sheet, this is a well-sorted, comfortable, and fast GTX that needs nothing. Go have fun and call today!
