#'S MATCHING 440 V8, TF 727 AUTO, PWR STEER & 4 WHL DISC BRK, WIN STICKR, CLEAN!
1971 was the final year for the Plymouth GTX. So when a rare coupe like this that has slick black paint, upgraded four-wheel discs, and its original 440 V8 under the hood, this famous muscle car went out with a bang not a whimper.
There was only one year that gave the GTX Chrysler's seriously sinister fuselage styling, and this is it. The full front overhang makes the headlights look like the eyes of a criminal lurking in the darkness. And speaking of darkness, you know black is the color you want for a powerful machine like this. But more than just the perfect hue, this one has all the right elements for muscle car aggression. The full-width rear spoiler, bold red GTX script on the trunklid, and of course, there's no missing the side strobe stripes that run down the front fender and draw even more attention to the optional Performance Hood. Bumpers on this car really are a credit to the creativity of the Mopar designers. This was before the new laws, and so the rear one integrates perfectly into the bodywork, and the front one is an artful corral for those e sinister headlights. And it's touches like these that make this one-year GTX so special.
Open the door, and you'll find one of the best interiors you will ever see on a GTX. These were the premium end of the Plymouth lineup, and so this one showcases the advantages of the few who were willing to make the extra investment. Where most of these are dark-and-stark budget classics, this car features a seriously attractive white that coordinates nicely with the exterior hood stripes. High back bucket seats and a center console are what we all look for in a premium classic muscle machine, and this even has so much more. We love all the factory-correct pieces, from the three-spoke steering wheel with Plymouth logo, to the original AM radio for display, to factory wood appearance paneling throughout the dash. It's almost like a time machine.
One place where there are modern improvements is under the hood... but you might have to look carefully. The advantage of the GTX was the 440 cubic-inch Super Commando V8 came standard with the package. This top dog motor you see here is the same one installed by the St. Louis factory over four decades ago. It still looks correct today with the Super Commando air topper and bold orange block radiating power from within the dark engine bay. But it now inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and exhales with greater thunder thanks to long tube headers that feed an X-pipe dual exhaust. But more than just flexing its muscles, this GTX is great on the road, too. The coupe's premium package included a beefier suspension, and that's joined by power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission. Plus, this one has received some terrific modern upgrades for superior control such as four-wheel disc brakes and modern performance tires on 17-inch alloys.
