For Sale: 1971 Plymouth GTX in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

1971 was the final year for the Plymouth GTX. So when a rare coupe like this has custom vibrant paint, a well-appointed interior, and a big 440 V8 under the hood, this famous muscle car went out with a bang, not a whimper.


There was only one year that gave the GTX seriously sinister styling. The full front overhang makes the headlights look like the eyes of a criminal lurking in the darkness. And that blackout style goes well with the chin spoilers, power dome hood insert, 440 callouts, and full-width rear spoiler. But it wasn't the darkness that first grabbed your attention. Instead, it's the vibrant color that's the most captivating part of this coupe. The trim tag even tells us that this was born in Plymouth's special Tor-Red available from the iconic High Impact color options. It's so desirable that even the bumpers were color-matched. The shiny finish shows off the well-done sheet metal and flared lines that make this one-year GTX so special.


The black exterior accents get you ready for the fashionably dark interior. The doors, carpet, headliner, and dash all keep the midnight theme going. But as a premium GTX, there is also some nice wood paneling surrounding the gauges, in front of the passenger, and on the doors. This presentation is exactly what you like if you're a fan of Mopar originality. And when there are upgrades, they are nicely integrated, like the retro-style AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth and air conditioning running modern R134a (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And we love that this GTX keeps the driver-focused attitude. That means high-back front bucket seats, full gauges with large speedo and tach, and a center console with Slap Stick shifter and a pistol grip.


Another great feature of the premium GTX was that the 440 Super Commando V8 came standard with the package. So we are quite happy to see the correct displacement and such a tidy setup of this replacement motor filling the engine bay. You'll love showing off the Coyote Duster air topper, and this even has the ultra-mean air grabber hood installed (you may need to service it to get it to rise up and intimidate traffic.). Beneath that is an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor that helps this mighty V8 inhale even better. Plus, we all love the roar a big Mopar V8 makes out of the dual exhaust. But more than just flexing its muscles, this GTX is a great cruiser, too. The coupe's premium package included a beefier suspension, and that's joined by other features such as power steering, front disc brakes, a rear sway bar, and the wide Cooper Cobra tires on classic Mopar road wheels.


The sale even comes complete with the factory buildsheet so you can see how this was built with the big motor and bright paint. This is the last of the GTXs, and you know something this bold won't stay available for long. Call today!!!
