I’m not sure if this GTX Convertible is legit or not, but I sure hope it is. You see it’s a Hemi equipped 4 speed convertible, making it the rarest and most desirable versions of the Plymouth GTX. It’s clearly in rough shape, but the seller is asking $100,000 for it, which might sound lofty given it’s condition but the last one to have sold went for nearly twice that. It’s located in Syracuse, New York and can be found here on craigslist. Special thanks to Mike S for this amazing tip!
The seller claims this car is 1 of 12. Obviously they built more than 12 GTX convertible in ’68, but I’m going to guess only 12 were shipped with the Hemi and a 4 speed. They don’t offer any pictures of the VIN or engine tag, but at least they posted a photo of the engine. And it looks like a Hemi to me!
I can’t say whether this ad is legitimate or not, but boy I sure hope it is. It isn’t everyday that a rare and desirable Hemi barn find pops up on craigslist, so when one does, it’s a special day! While I couldn’t ever afford this Mopar, I wouldn’t mind seeing it while it’s still in the barn, and I noticed there looks to be something else interesting parked next to it in the barn. So do you think this car originally featured the Hemi/4-speed combo, or was it added later?
