440/4-Speed: 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX

Any car that rolled off the production line in 1967 with 375hp under the hood could never be considered to be a bad thing, and that is precisely what you get with this Plymouth Belvedere GTX. Once restored, this car promises to be an interesting and entertaining car to own, but it could just as easily be driven and enjoyed exactly as it is. Located in O’Fallon, Missouri, you will find the GTX listed for sale here on eBay. The owner has set the BIN at $22,825, although the option is available to make an offer. As I am writing this, there are currently 96 people who are watching the listing.

The GTX appears to be a solid car, although its original Medium Blue paint is showing the passing of the years. Rust issues with the car seem to be pretty minor, with some rust in the floors, which the owner says isn’t terrible. There are also some small spots in the lower quarter panels, but even this isn’t bad. I do agree with the owner that this appears to be an honest car, with no obvious signs of any previous repairs. Apart from rectifying those minor rust issues and replacing the cracked windshield, it looks like a fresh coat of paint will bring the GTX back to its best.

Moving to the interior of the GTX continues the trend towards the good news. The upholstered surfaces all look like they are in good condition, with the only marked deterioration being to the armrests on both doors. The steering wheel also has a couple of noticeable cracks in it, but the rest of the interior looks like it would respond well to a good clean.

It was when you popped the hood on a GTX that you found what all the fuss was about. The GTX was available with two different engines, both of which endowed the car with pretty respectable performance. What you get with this one is the 440ci Super Commando V8, which is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission. This delivers 375hp, and handling was improved by the addition of power steering, 6-leaf rear springs, along with heavier torsion bars, heavy-duty shocks and ball joints. This car is ready to be driven and enjoyed, thanks to a new fuel tank and sender, a rebuilt carburetor, a new dual exhaust, rebuilt brakes, and a rebuilt original radiator. New tires on 15″ wheels round out the package.

This Plymouth Belvedere GTX is a car that can be driven and enjoyed right now, but once restored, it will be a pretty nice piece of kit to park in your driveway. With horsepower to burn, it promises to be an entertaining car to own and drive, and I can see exactly why so many people are currently watching the listing.

    Much nicer than what we’ve seen in recent comparable offerings. Though the seller doesn’t state specifically it’s a matching #’s car for that BIN price, it’s more realistic to consider this purchase than much of the muscle car presentations we’ve been subjected to of late.

    With that in mind, though, it’ll be interesting to see the final price on eBay as compared to the practically identical car offered for bid at BaT, save that theirs is an auto vs this much more desirable manual.

      He does say that it has original engine and transmission.
      Not sure if that means the numbers match. It could mean it is the original engine that was in it when he bought it.

    If the rust isn’t too bad, this would be a decent buy. I’ve always had a soft spot for 4spd, bucket seat, non-console cars. It’s always concerning when you see a lift in the pictures, but there are no undercarriage shots. It makes you wonder if the seller is deliberately trying to hide something.

    I’m surprised the write up didn’t mention the Dana 60, I would consider it’s presence as a strong selling point. The rear end is valuable and would be one of the first things to go if a previous owner was trying to swap out parts to pad their profit margin.

    Buy it, love on it and drive it. Very nice car, that appears can be bought at a decent price.

    In 1971 I was offered a car almost like this (only in a puke green color) for $500. 60K miles, only a few spots of rust in the quarters, most of the pain still shiny after a good rub, but I said it was too expensive. I had already dodged a bullet in the service (many bullets really, lucky to be alive) and I didn’t feel the need to be burdened with this. A new 318 Duster is what caught my eye, thought I deserved a new car.

    I Like it, ready to rip thru the gears. Good luck to the new owner. Nice to see something like this that appears to be unmolested!

    The good 440 from the beginning of the package wars from Chrysler.
    In 1966 you could order a Charger, Coronet, or Belvedere with a wide variety of drivetrain options. In 67 Dodge offered the R/T and Plymouth the GTX. No special packages were offered with the Charger, though. 1968 saw the arrival of the stripper Super Bee and Road Runner models, 383 or Hemi powered, while the R/T models morphed into luxury models. 440/375 was standard with Hemi power optional. Chargers could be had with every engine Chrysler had with one exception, if I remember correctly, the special Road Runner 383.
    I could be wrong, though.

    OK Morley, you’ve thrown down the gauntlet, so just exactly what is your beef with Mopars?

    I’ve owned several Dodges, and all were great cars. Now I just bought a 67 Chrysler Newport, and I gotta say the build quality and materials are better than my 63 Riviera. What’s your story?

    Dave – you could get anything in a 1967 Charger – including the Hemi…..which is a pretty BIG package…..

    • Dave

      True, but there was no 67 Charger R/T package. I can’t recall ever seeing one.

    The 67 GTX is one of my favorite mopars. Having a 4 speed with no ac is what I like about this car.

    Auction ended with no takers.

      It wasn’t listed on an auction, only a set BIN price. It could have sold outside of eBay especially considering his contact information was in the ad, many sellers also simultaneously list cars on more than one platform. No one here will likely know the outcome.
