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?
