MOSTLY UNRESTORED, ONLY ONE REPAINT, #'S MATCHING 440, ORIGINAL INTERIOR, NICE!
Plymouth moved upmarket with the GTX, taking the handsome Belvedere hardtop and adding a few luxury touches to create what many called the "banker's hot rod." This particular 1967 Plymouth GTX has just two owners, a rock-solid documents package, and just a single repaint, making it a great car with no skeletons in its closet.
You already know we're suckers for Chryslers angular styling, and the '67 GTX was probably the pinnacle of the design, as everything would change in 1968. The GTX is clean but muscular, an insanely attractive combination that includes twin hood scoops and chiseled character lines along its flanks. The car shows about 87,000 miles and we're inclined to believe that's an authentic number, because this sucker is very, very clean. It was repainted once a few years ago in its original RR Yellow, and that repaint is holding up extremely well. The shine is appropriate to the era and while it shows a few signs of use, the look is that of a car that has been loved all its life. There's also a contrasting black vinyl top, which not only give the GTX a grown-up look but also emphasizes the cantilever styling that is this car's hallmark. The chrome and stainless trim is almost entirely original, so there's some wear and tear, but the overall look works really well, with nothing standing out as too nice or too deteriorated. The love shows.
The beautiful black vinyl bucket seat interior is completely original, and if that doesn't convince you that this car has led an easy life, nothing will. The seats are in excellent condition with only minor stretching in the front buckets, but otherwise excellent. The tooling down the centers of the seats was a big part of the upmarket appeal of the GTX, and with a center console and a full array of gauges, it feels racy. The gauges themselves show a bit of age but they all work properly and there's always something special about sliding behind the wheel of a quality Mopar and grabbing that oversized wheel. The factory radio is still in the dash, although it's no longer operational, the lone demerit in what is otherwise a very impressive original car. The trunk is likewise well-preserved, with a correct original mat and spare tire hiding underneath.
This GTX is fortified with its original 440 cubic inch Super Commando V8, which was rated at 375 horsepower by the factory. The twin-snorkel air cleaner tips you off that this isn't a garden-variety engine, and the unique exhaust manifolds were a hallmark of Chrysler big blocks for several years. The intake manifold has been upgraded and there's an electronic ignition module inside the distributor (the original parts are included with the car), but otherwise it's original and in outstanding condition. Corporate turquoise engine enamel, chrome valve covers, and proper hoses and clamps all give it a proper look and you can't argue with the seamless flow of torque this engine generates. Its' backed by a three-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission and an 8.75-inch rear end as well as a recent dual exhaust system that sounds just right. The underside is unrestored, so you'll want to skip the mirrors, but there's exactly zero evidence this car has ever seen inclement weather. It rides and handles beautifully and those black Rallye wheels give it a predatory look that suits it just fine.
Documented with a Chrysler Corporation Broadcast sheet and original fender tag, this is a wonderfully well documented car that's ready for its third owner to take care of it. Call today!
