4-Speed Elephant: 1967 Plymouth GTX Hemi

When talking about classic Mopars, does it get any better than a Hemi with a 4 speed?! Well you guessed it, this Hemi GTX is a very clean machine that appears to have been featured on the cover of Muscle Car magazine. Appearing in mint condition, this “Elephant” powered Mopar is offered for $85,000.00. You can find this rare specimen here on craigslist out of Torrington, Connecticut. Thanks to Rocco B. for this ground shaking submission!

In all of its 426 cubic inch glory, you can clearly see that this GTX has been well taken care of. Clean as a whistle under the hood, I am sure this is one wild ride once you start rowing gears. All of the small hardware in the engine compartment is rust free, and there is no corrosion in sight. The retro battery is a plus in my book as well. Capable of running 13’s in the quarter mile, even by today’s standards this GTX is still neck snapping quick.

Clean, simple, and appearing like a businessman’s car, you would almost think this GTX is a calm drive. The interior is clean, with only a couple of things to question. One, the carpet has an odd hue, but I am guessing it is the lighting in the image. Two, there almost looks to be a fine crack or scratch on top of the dash towards the passenger side. Not the end of the world, but with a car like this condition is everything. Otherwise hop in and roll into the throttle for never ending smiles!

Although the exterior images are limited, the paint and body work is impressive on this Mopar. The paint has a gorgeous wet gloss like finish and the body work and panel gaps look straight and even. If you examine the framed image of this cars magazine shoot, you can see the seller has framed what looks to be the original window sticker, a Chrysler Registry letter, and an old title. Although the listing is lacking with information, it certainly seems that this is the real deal “White Elephant” of the GTX world. What wouldn’t you do to get your hands on this Hemi GTX?

    $85k seems like a large chunk of coin, but then I think I saw one go across Barrett Jackson that topped the $100k price, so like they say its worth what someone will pay.

    These are the cars that dreams are made of. Great ride, perfect color body & stripes. I had a ’67 Belvedere II in high school; same body style. Loved that car.

    If it wasn’t for our .78 dollar, I would seriously consider making an offer on the car. The only Mopar I would want more than this, would be a Hemi Cuda.

      Actually, the exchange rate shouldn’t be a problem for you* as long as the loonie doesn’t get back up. Any slipping (say, down to 75 cents USD) after you bought the car would in fact translate in a gain for you. Basically, buying a collectible car on our continent (where they’re priced in USD) always involves taking a bet on the value of the USD vs our CAD (the exact same way buying American stocks means you’ll also be having your money riding on the future performance of the American dollar, not only of your chosen stock), but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It may just as well be a good one.

      * unless, of course, you only have about ~$80k CAD to spare, which would’ve probably been enough a few years ago when our dollars were at par, but nowadays isn’t likely to convince the seller of something listed at $85k USD OBO.

    The few I have road in are truly brute beast.
    In actuality match one up against a HP 440 on the street back then it was whichever driver nailed the launch and shift points that determined winner.
    Then it was all the brute torque that shredded tires. And ya realy had to watch launch and 1-3 gear changes or break eM loose.
    We got either one into 12 by just tire changes and the autos were quicker in 1/4 mile.
    The idles were not dumpty rump, although would tear up cheapo water pump and per steering pulley bushings, and no air conditioning lasted if you even found on (dealer options) list.
    AUTO TRANNYS GOT BEEFED UP CLUTCH PACKS AND VALVING AND SUPER DUTY STARTERS.
    The hemi 425 HP was a bald rea faced lie, and I seen some with 4.10 gears scream into stratosphere in rpm, and lasted forever.
    80 K lots bucks but fair if original as long term investment.
    Today these muse cars do not get bought by drivers, they go into collections.
    So much so that if indeed one wants a driver each year they become further out of reach and less of them open to buy.

    That thing really has got a hemi
    four speed !!!!!
    It’s impressive! One who gets it has to keep it under a blanket and five car covers and check on it daily to see if it’s still there 💰💰👀😎

    It’s really impressive though!

    In high school I owned a silver 67 GTX with the 440 Super Commando, column shift automatic, 323 rear end, black buckets, no console and 99,000 miles. $1,000 bucks. As soon as I got it I put a pillow between the bucket seats, picked up my girlfriend (now my wife of 41 years) and took her for a drive. Backed onto 54 highway (Kansas) and nailed the gas which (mostly) deposited her into the back seat. One of many GREAT memories. I even ordered and got the slanted exhaust tips from the local Plymouth dealer. When my mechanic overhauled it he decided the cam wasn’t “too worn out” so he reused it. Pity. Try as I would I could not beat my friend Bill in his 69(?) Super Bee. Premium was 23 cents and I got 11 mpg coasting as much as possible on the 69 highway roller coster. Happy memories.

    A four speed was an option….funny or good it doesn’t have a console . Was in Cali at one point and now on the east coast – will it get flipped back ?

    The rare one. Out of approximately 12,500 GTX’s built in ’67 only 720 or so were ordered with the street hemi, a 550 dollar option. This was the car that Car and Driver managed a 13.5 at 105 mph, but I wonder if that time came bone stock or if they had messed with it a bit. In comparison, Motor Trend tried a ’67 Coronet R/T with a hemi and automatic tranny and could only manage a 15 second time slip at 97miles an hour, maybe it needed a tune up or possibly a different driver.
    Great car.

      Hard to believe 15’s! Had a 67 R/T 440-375HP. Auto, 3:23 gears, ran 14.40. Driver reaction time probably!

      My brother had a 66 Coronet 500 with a 383 and a 4 barrel. It needed a timing chain. He still managed a 15.73 out of it in the quarter mile. (A mechanic friend of his offered to put a timing chain in for free if he could get it down the track the the 15’s which is how I recall the details.) If that car with 3.23’s and a tired motor could manage 15’s on bald snow tires, I find it hard to believe that Motor Trend couldn’t do better than 15 seconds with a hemi. (The photo of my brother’s car on the strip is from June of 1971 and the smoke you see is from the car in the other lane.)

        I can believe it, the hemi’s were flakey. A high school buddy had a fastback Charger with the hemi & he was having to constantly tinker with it. If he tuned it to run good on the street, it ran like crap at the strip. If he tuned for running the 1/8th, it was practically undrivable around town. It constantly fouled plugs. He fimally got tired of messing with it & traded it for a 68 with a 440. It was drivable on the street & more consistent at the track.

    Motor Trend still beat your buddies cool Coronet by seven tenths, ha ha! Seriously, driver skill is often not mentioned on this site, you know the cars don’t do it alone, especially those old ones. That was my inside question above about the difference between two magazine road tests. Any number of reasons- incorrect shift points, lousy holeshot, poor running engine, etc.. the 440, 383, not to forget the 413 and 426 wedge engines were no slouches either for that matter.✌
