High Class Muscle! 1967 Plymouth GTX

Never-restored and looking for a new owner, this 1967 Plymouth GTX in Englewood, Colorado seeks a new owner here on eBay. At least one bidder is in the game at $8000, but it will take a bigger gamble to meet the seller’s reserve. If the slightly mismatched fender tag checks out, this muscle-bound coupe is a true GTX born with a 440 cid (7.2L) V8 and three-speed automatic. Thanks to mymopar.com for some details.

Plymouth’s GTX represented the upscale muscle car for people who wanted some flash with their dash.  This special model gained additional brightwork inside and out including the tail panel. The sales literature touted its drag-racing prowess, a daring act that would cause people to email their congressperson today.

“Refreshed” some 1000 miles ago, the four-barrel 440 (base engine on the GTX) would have made 375 HP stock. No word on whether it’s the original mill, so do your homework and bid accordingly. Like my ’66 Coronet, this GTX features power steering and manual brakes.

The black interior matches the fender tag, as do the RR1 paint and fender-mounted turn signals. The 3.23 rear gears should offer plenty of fun and decent highway cruising assuming somewhat civilized mufflers. All in all this car offers a good starting point. Having been in one family since 1970 means the seller should be able to answer myriad questions about the car’s history, such as why the fender tag looks like it spent many years apart from the car. Are you the one to give it a second chance?

    Look. You can actually see the engine, not a huge slab of black plastic like new cars have… I love it. Rip the automatic out though…

    If this thing was from Iowa, I may know the former owner. That one ran like a scalded dog, and was perfect match for his Hemi RR. Only knew him for a few months before going into the service, but time well spent.

    Had a gold 67 satellite convertible with a 273 auto, bought a 340/4 speed out of a wreaked duster…fun high school car.

    Nice old Plymouth, plenty big for a mid sized car, but the 440 had that snap. Not a high winding motor either at least stock an with all that low end torque an automatic seems just fine. Just ask an old CHP officer how well that combination works.
    Actually the best looking part of this ride is the engine, go figure.

    Seen it for sale before – it’s about where it should be on price with the new motor.

    I have seen this car. It’s been out in his yard at his shop for a very long time. He ain’t one to talk so much, but he’s in our little gearhead circle here in Denver.

    But the build tag is being held on with one screw that looks like it may be a sheet rock screw. Just saying

    Probably THE only `67 GTX I’ve seen with buckets & a column shift auto. That’s a strange combo. Looks so barren with no console.

    I bought one of these off a Plymouth dealer in Marquette MI when I got back to the world in mid 68. Holy waah, what a rocket. Could roast a set of 14 inch firestones off in a weekend. Power brake for three blocks
