This 1967 Plymouth GTX is Being Offered With No Reserve!

When it was introduced in 1967, the Plymouth GTX offered its buyers neck-snapping performance with a touch of style and comfort. This one is a tidy looking vehicle, but it will need some work to return it to its best. However, it is roadworthy, so that work can be undertaken at a time that will suit the new owner. Located in Saint Louis, Missouri, you can find the GTX listed for sale here on eBay. Solid bidding action has pushed the price along to $10,100 in this No Reserve auction.

The owner is candid in referring to the Plymouth as a “sort of survivor.” He admits that not everything is original, with the car receiving work throughout its life. The Dark Blue Metallic paint is mostly as it rolled off the line, but it has received a few touch-ups over the years. Its presentation is still reasonable from a distance, although a closer inspection does reveal some deterioration. With classics of this age, rust is almost always going to be something to consider. This GTX is no exception because it does have some issues that need addressing. There is rust in the lower rear quarter panels and some in the lower corners of the doors. This isn’t extensive and could easily be addressed with patches. There is also a limited amount of rust present in the floors, although once again, this could be patched. The trunk pan is sound, with no problems to tackle. In a car like this, I tend to get more concerned by prior rust repairs than by those that might be required. A few spots under the car have received this treatment, and inspecting those would be a wise move. The critical spot here is on the passenger side, near the torsion bar mount. The owner admits that there has been a repair there in the past. This area is under a lot of stress and load when the car is in use. Therefore, it is paramount that any repairs have been completed to a high standard. The bumpers probably need to be replaced, as does the cracked windshield. The remaining trim and the glass appear to be in good order for a driver-quality car.

If you like your motoring experience to include a touch of Tabasco, then you would probably look at the Plymouth as a good thing. The GTX is a numbers-matching classic that features the Super Commando 440ci V8, which would be good for 375hp. All of that grunt has to go somewhere, so the 3-speed TorqueFlite transmission sends it to the road via an 8¾” Sure Grip rear end. Is it fast? Well, just a bit! The GTX should be capable of demolishing the ¼ mile in 14.3 seconds. Give it enough space, and it should find its way to 136mph. The motor was recently pulled and given a refresh, while a new Flowmaster exhaust has been fitted. The owner says that it sounds mean (no surprises there) and that it is ready to be driven and enjoyed.

One area where the buyer won’t need to spend much money is on the interior because the work has already been done. The owner has fitted new covers on the seats, a new headliner, a new carpet set, and a new dash pad. It all presents extremely well, but I wish that he’d hit the carpet with a vacuum and wiped over the pedals before he took this photo. It is those little things that some potential buyers might find distracting. The console looks presentable, but I think that the original radio might have made way for an aftermarket radio/cassette player. A few small detail items might need attention, but the buyer wouldn’t hang their head in shame if they lobbed at a Cars & Coffee in the GTX as it currently stands.

This 1967 Plymouth GTX is a car that it is difficult to make a definitive assessment on because it is one that I believe requires an in-person inspection. Its rust issues don’t appear to be bad, but I would want to make sure that the previous repairs have been completed to a high standard. If it checks out okay, it has the makings of a great project car. With what you know, is this a project that you would be willing to tackle?

    I’m with you, Adam-if the repairs are as advertised this would be a great project for a MOPAR fan at a very decent price at the time of this writing.
    What’s appreciated too is the indicated honesty of the seller of the weaknesses with the strengths of this machine.

    Nice, nice, nice, and to think that tin can Road Runner replaced this. Always been a Mopar fan, but the ’67 GTX , 440, was just the king of the hill. The ’68 Satellite, which the Road Runner was based, was half the car this was. This car said, you meant business AND could impress any future boss or father in law. From this point on, Chrysler focused on sheer power, and lost a lot of it’s “Gentlemans Cruiser” traits probably until the Cordoba days. No power brakes or steering will give the next owner some new stories to tell, it’s a manly car( sorry ladies) but if you ask me, THIS is the Mopar to have from the 60’s.

    I had a shell of a ’67 GTX back in the late 70’s. Bought it for $400 after someone took out the Engine, Torque Flight, and seats. It still had the Dana 60 though. I put in a 318 I had lying around with a torque flight and some junkyard firebird seats and a floor shifter and drove it for 2-3 years. The super sloppy power steering drove me nuts but it was our daily driver. Sold it for $400 to some guy who was going to turn it into a drag car. Was I had today.

    Totally agree Howard A, these were truly the greatest of the greats. I’m a die-hard mopar guy, bought a 67 GTX in 1987 for $400 cash and drove it home from Ottawa, Ks. Was my daily driver for 3 years, loved that car. The no P/S and no P/B was the cause of it’s unfortunate demise in a 1990 accident. Replaced it with a ’71 GTX. Wonderful memories of long gone times. This one would be a great project for the money. Hats off to the new lucky owner, hope you enjoy for years to come.

    Isn’t one of the ‘collectors’ holding out for many tens of thousands of dollars for a title and a dream going to have to bid this car up to protect the belief that every old two-door big-block Mopar is worth more than a new Land Cruiser?

    My first real mechanic job was in a Mobil staion in 1972\3 A gentleman had a Bronze 67 GTX in for service. Plugs points etc. Got to road test one of the greats. Just pure acceleration in a tight rattle free body tourque flight posi rear 440 Could burn rubber at will with the skinny glass belts. That cars memory is still one of my favorite after 40 years of auto work.

    Man I really like this car. Wish I was ready for a project like this.

    The “Gentleman’s Hot Rod”. I’d love to have had one.

    Rare darker blue on this one – not sure if it hadn’t had a repaint with all the repairs it has had to the frame. Although the repairs look good I’m scared of what you don’t see and what the pictures show need work. The floors have just had a floor patch put on them so that’s a detail that jumps out at me.

    Sold my B5 blue GTX in 1989 on a idea I was getting married a state away….one of the hardest deliveries/sales I made that year – driving it over a few cities to the new owners house….man the 440 I put in it would run !!!

    For the price, it can’t be beat! Plan on spending another 10k on body & frame work. You can easily double your money if so inclined. Great project for the right enthusiast!
