The Plymouth GTX was introduced as the Belvedere GTX in 1967 by the
Plymouth division. It was positioned as a mid-sized upscale-trimmed
performance muscle car through the 1971 model year.
The GTX was positioned as a "gentleman's" muscle car. Standard was
Plymouth's 440 cu in (7.2 L) V8 engine called the "Super Commando
440" rated at 375 Horsepower. Optional was Chrysler's 426 cu in
(7.0 L) Hemi with 425 Horsepower. A heavy duty suspension system
was also standard.
Chrysler introduced major changes in the design of the 1968 model
Plymouth B-bodies and the GTX was given a completely new look. A
new hourglass body replaced the previous rectilinear design. The
high performance 440 was standard in the GTX. The TorqueFlite
automatic transmission was standard on the GTX as well. The GTX
used the Sport Satellite trim and was offered in two body styles, a
two-door convertible and a two-door hardtop (no B-pillar). All
featured dual horizontal "racing stripes" on the lower sides ending
with a GTX emblem ahead of the rear wheel openings.
Base price was $3,329, with a convertible available from $3,590. A
total of 17,914 hardtops, but only 1,026 convertibles were sold.
The 425 bhp, 426 Street Hemi was optional, though it was only
fitted to 410 hardtops and about 36 convertibles.
This particular example is a TWO OWNER car and has less than 90K
original miles. It underwent a professional, no expense spared
restoration in 2005. Finished in its correct SS1 Yellow color, this
HEMI is super rare and has held up extremely well. Complete with
restoration pictures and a DVD with 100's of additional
HEMI Powered Mopars have a proven track record of appreciating in
value and this GTX is an incredible value with only 410 examples
ever made. This GTX runs, drives and looks absolutely amazing and
will make an excellent addition to any collection.
