Attention all Mopar and muscle car fans... this is time to take
notice. The 1967 Plymouth GTX was a one-year only design, and so
this big 440 V8 muscle machine has been restored to the highest
order. Amazing paint, a comfy A/C interior, and an award-worth
presentation over every inch means this will make everyone else
green with envy.
Rarity and distinction are two qualities that have lasting value. That's why people look for '67 GTXs. It was the first year for this now legendary nameplate, and it was a single-year design. Plus, with this being one of the most expensive Plymouths, as well as Chrysler's historically lower production numbers, then you know this is already a rare treat. But what makes this one the standout amongst even the rarest of Mopar crowds is the level of attention that went into the whole build. It was given a frame-off nut and bolt restoration. The long, straight shape of the Satellite-based body demands care when you're repainting one, and you can instantly tell there was a ton $$$$ invested in getting the sheetmetal right. The original color was Dark Green Metallic, but we can't fault the restorer for going a bit lighter. After all, a true gem like this deserves to shine like an emerald. And you can see from the reflections in those arrow-straight quarter panels that they got it right. The cantilevered styling on the roof was uniquely Mopar, and the mirror-like chrome bumpers add sophistication to this distinction. But the real treat comes from the performance pieces that make the GTX intimidating. The dual black stripes look sporty and also highlight the dual scoops in the hood. And the correct redline tires look fantastic against the Mopar mag wheels. Even the race-inspired fuel filler cap is correct!
More distinction and first-class touches await when you open the door. The factory-correct premium white vinyl bucket seats have an intricate pattern that really grabs attention. And the center console that runs in-between is a work of art. These were midsize cars by 1960s standards, which means there is plenty of room to carry up to four family and friends with you to enjoy the very factory-correct and well-presented package. We know you'll love all the great original touches on this one from Plymouth logo steering wheel, to the artful shifter, to the AM radio that's still cranking out tunes. But this one also has the right upgrades. The auxiliary gauge package and new SunPro tach are great for all the essential info. And you get to stay as cool as you look because it has modern R134a air conditioning.
This was at the dawn of the muscle car era, and this one celebrates it correctly. The GTX was a true street king with Plymouth's 440 cubic-inch Super Commando engine. The level of quality in this restoration is so high, that they even tracked down an October '67 engine so that it correctly corresponds with this coupe's build date. This monster motor received a full profession rebuild before being mated to the restored original A727 three-speed automatic transmission. Today, it's presentation in the engine bay is worth awards all on its own. The bright green fender walls are stuffed with big block power that's shining brighter than the day this left the factory. It fires up easily and makes a ferocious growl out of the header-fed dual exhaust. But don't just listen to this car's thunder; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see the full extent of this restoration where they really got the details right - including powder coating the frame and upgrading the bushings. And because you want to show this one off everywhere, you've got great driving features like power steering and front disc brakes.
You know this is a special Mopar that will receive plenty of recognition (it's already had a spread in Mopar Muscle Magazine.) The sale even comes with build receipts, owner's manual, restoration photos, and Galen Govier documentation. So if you're a true muscle car connoisseur, don't let something this distinct slip away.
