1967 Plymouth GTX 440 4-Speed

Ah, the 1960s. It was an era when it seemed that every American manufacturer was willing to throw its hat into the ring to produce a muscle car. Generally, these cars prioritized hard-edged performance over comfort. However, there were some notable exceptions to that rule. One of those was Plymouth’s GTX, which broke cover for the 1967 model year. There was no denying its performance credentials, although its interior appointments earned it the title of “the gentleman’s muscle car.” Our feature car is from that first year of production, and it has plenty of positive attributes. Not only does it present superbly, but its drivetrain combination offers the promise of a satisfying classic motoring experience. The owner has been this Plymouth’s custodian for nearly two decades, but he feels that the time is right for it to head to a new home. Located in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, you will find the GTX listed for sale here on Barn Finds Classifieds. If you hand the owner $55,900, you could be driving away in this stunning gem.

When the seller purchased this GTX in 2003, its previous owner had already treated it to a repaint in its original Bright Blue Poly. Its overall condition today stands as a testament to a life filled with care and respect. The paint shows a wonderful depth of color and shine, with no significant flaws or defects. The panels are laser straight, while the Black vinyl top is spotless. There is no evidence of bubbling that might indicate hidden nasty surprises, and the underside shots confirm that this is a rust-free classic. The chrome shines as impressively as the paint, and the glass appears flawless. Rounding out the exterior and adding to its classy impression are factory chrome wheels wrapped in redline tires.

Many of the factory production figures for the GTX were lost in a fire years ago. However, various sources place the total at approximately 12,690 cars. Of those, it seems that the owner’s claim that our feature car is 1-of-2,200 Hardtops featuring the 440/4-speed drivetrain combination fits with figures supplied by various specialist resources. While some enthusiasts will focus on the Hemi-equipped versions, this GTX is no automotive wimp. With 375hp being fed from its 440ci V8 to the Dana 60 rear end via a four-speed manual transmission, this classic should storm the ¼ mile in 14.1 seconds. The engine bay continues this classic’s theme of spotless presentation, and it doesn’t flatter to deceive. The seller supplies this YouTube video. It provides an excellent walkaround and allows us to hear that 440 running. The engine sounds crisp and clean, with no evidence of smoke or odd noises.

You only have to look at the interior appointments to realize why the “gentleman’s muscle car” tag attached itself so firmly to the GTX. We see the Hurst shifter for that fabulous four-speed poking through a console that features a factory tachometer. The bucket seats offer excellent comfort and support, and the pattern in the factory vinyl adds to the classy impression. This interior is largely original and unmolested. The seller treated the front seats to new covers and foam in 2007, but the remaining Black trim, headliner, and carpet are as they left the factory. There is no evidence of wear or physical deterioration and no aftermarket additions. The original AM radio is intact, while the dash and pad appear excellent. This interior needs nothing and reinforces the impression that the GTX has been cherished throughout its life.

There’s no denying that this 1967 Plymouth GTX is a stunning car, and its drivetrain combination should offer sufficient performance to satisfy the most hardened enthusiast. It is a car that appears to need nothing, making it ideal for someone seeking a turnkey classic. Values on the 1967 GTX remained relatively static for years, although they have climbed sharply since 2020. This trend shows no signs of easing, and with the younger generation now clamoring to park a muscle car in their garage, it seems inevitable that it will continue unabated. The price on this GTX looks highly competitive, and I won’t be surprised if someone grabs it pretty quickly. I’m happy to admit that I will envy the new owner when this happens.

    I had a ‘67 GTX also in bright blue poly. Mine was also a 440, but it had an automatic on the column. My interior was blue and mine had power steering. I really liked the styling of the ‘67’s, and the fact it was not a long vehicle like the later GTX years. That GTX I had got the most head turns ever from all the cars I’ve owned over the years as well. If I did not have health issues, and lack of space, I would be a serious buyer. This one sounds great and the walk around video I can tell that the seller is a car guy. He knew where to point the camera.

      Car is mine, so I’ll be happy to answer this one:
      Lived in CA when I bought the car, only to move to New England the following year. Surprisingly, two of the previous owners (including the guy I got the car from) were in Massachusetts, within driving distance of Chelmsford.

      Since CA doesn’t smog cars this old or require any other inspection, all they need is a yearly check for the tags and they’ll happily ship the sticker to MA.

      I have a clear title from California in my name.

        Did the car ever reside in Delaware?

    Greg G. Saw that as well and then wondered if it is another owner, or dealer? A chance he may have moved to a new state I suppose.

      But the ad says….”The owner has been this Plymouth’s custodian for nearly two decades…” …so if true, no new owner, no dealer….and, not moved to California…located in Chelmsford, Massachusetts.
