Gentleman’s Muscle Car: 1967 Plymouth GTX

gentlemans-muscle-car-1967-plymouth-gtx

In 1967, if you liked the looks and features of the Plymouth Belvedere, but wanted something faster, than you would have likely found the Plymouth GTX to be a great option. While the GTX was based on the Belvedere platform, it offered considerably better performance at the drag strip and on the street. Special thanks to reader Jim S for tipping us off to this 1967 Plymouth GTX, which can be found here on eBay.

This GTX is in need of a lot of work, but the seller claims it’s solid. The GTX came standard with the 375 hp 440 V8, but could be had with the 425 hp 426 Hemi V8. This one came with the 440, which is still under the hood and the seller claims it turns freely. They also claim all the hard to find pieces are still on the car and that the floors are solid. Looking at all the exterior rust, I feel it’s safe to bet that the underside is rusty. Hopefully I’m wrong and the rust has been contained to just the body panels and not the structural components.

The GTX was often called the Gentleman’s muscle car, as it offered all the performance of a muscle car, but was still well appointed and civilized. This one has seen better days, but for the right price it could be brought back to Gentleman’s status. Since it is based on the Belvedere, parts should be easy to come by and a parts car could be sourced fairly cheaply. Let’s hope someone takes it on and saves it from further decay. Anyone have any special memories of either the Hemi or the 440 powered GTX?

    I owned a red 67 GTX 440 4 speed back in 1975. I always liked the body style and it was an SS Chevelle killer.

    It is a shame, another rust per pound per $$, I would buy it to save from the crusher but on “The Donald” would have the money to fully restore this GTX.

    Wow that’s going to take some effort.

    Looks like it may have been a donor car for the pretty black one.
    I’m looking for a 68-72 chevrolet truck. $5000 or less.

    I am not a MoPar guy……………unless…….it is a ’67 GTX , looks like metal rats have been a’ chewin’ away at this one. Once again, unless you plan on keeping it, walk away.

    Seems like an honest, reasonable description….until:
    ‘Luckily for you I am buried in other projects…’
    ‘This is a great car to restore…’
    ‘It’s not $150,000!’
    ‘Nothing disturbed!’
    ‘I have not tried to start it but I assume it will run’
    ‘The trunk pan is perfect!’ (no photo)
    ‘Car has normal lower quarter panel rust’

    In other words: ‘Anyone with half a brain will see that this is ‘a great car to restore’.
    And the reason you`re not bidding yet is….???

    OK, my turn:
    Number of 1967 GTX Coupes made: 11,429
    Current SCM price range for #2 condition ’67 GTX Coupe: $25,000-$33,000
    You can’t get there from here for that money (plus the auction price), unless you have a fully equipped shop, lots of spare time for the next two years, and pay yourself 10 cents an hour for your labor but don’t count the miles of MIG wire and electricity that will be consumed.

    “While the GTX was based on the Belvedere platform, it offered considerably better performance………”
    Well of COURSE it offered considerably better performance!……….a GTX’s Super Commando 440 over a Belvedere’s base 318 will DO that!

    67 factory blue/blue, 440 closed chamber heads, purple shaft, predator carb etc..500 hp/525 ft lbs. 727 tf= a shitload of fun and trouble at 16…good daze

  9. FRED

    I ALWAY’S WANTED A GTX BUT NEVER GOT THE CHANCE TO OWN ONE.I WISH MY HEALTH WAS BETTER AND I STILL HAD MY BODY SHOP. AS LONG AS THE MOTOR TURNED OVER IT MIGHT BE WORTH THE EFFORT. BUT THEN AGAIN A RESTOMOD WITH ONE OF THOSE NEW HEMI ENGINES MIGHT BE ANOTHER WAY TO GO. GOOD LUCK TO WHOEVER SAVES IT.

    WOW!! Was this parked under the Tulsarama Plymouth Fury??? I know Mopars are famous for their rust, but this appears to be extreme!!! a donor body would seem to be the way to go, at the expense of originality, and then what have you got???
