The GTX was to be an exceptional blend of style and performance. What differentiated it from a normal Belvedere was its special grille and rear fascia, shared with the Satellite, chrome "pit stop" fuel filler cap and optional racing stripes. For the performance aspect of the vehicle, a heavy duty suspension system was made standard. Standard too was Plymouth's 440 V8 called the "Super Commando 440". The engine was rated at 375 hp.
The Plymouth GTX arrived on the muscle car scene in 1967 as Plymouth's serious contender, a hot rod version of the square Belvedere, with a Hemi V-8 option. Base motor in the GTX was the 375-hp, Super Commando 440-cid V-8, capable of 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds, with a quarter-mile time of 14.6 seconds and a top speed of 121 mph. And that was when the car was equipped with an automatic transmission and not an optional 4-speed. The 426 Hemi option cost $605 extra and only 703 GTX hardtops and 17 convertibles were so equipped in 1967.
Due to its high cost relative to the Plymouth Road Runner, the GTX is relatively rare today. The cars were incredibly quick, but also invariably better equipped than most other muscle cars of the era, which makes good originals worth seeking out. Hemis are the rarest of the breed, and priced accordingly, but the 440 cars are generally easier to live with and provide an exhilarating ownership experience in their own rights.
This particular Mopar started life as a Satellite Convertible, and was recently transformed into a tribute to one of the most feared street machines on the road… the 1967 Plymouth Hemi GTX Convertible.
In January of 1967; this GTX rolled off the assembly line in a rather dull Monotone Green exterior color with white vinyl bucket seats. That may have been a nice color for 1967, but today we prefer brighter, flashier colors. So it was painted a beautiful Bright Red that shines brightly, and demands attention wherever it goes. The white interior that turns a putrid eggshell over the years was replaced by a strong black, period correct, vinyl fabric that perfectly complements the Bright Red exterior and the black convertible top.
The monster 426 Hemi CRATE engine is virtually new sporting it's advertised 425 horsepower. This is possibly the most desirable crate engine in the world today. However; with the luxuries of power steering, power disc brakes and automatic transmission; this muscle car can easily be tamed for a nice, relaxing cruise if you choose. The 727 TorqueFlight automatic transmission is perfectly mated for smooth, confident shifts.
As I mentioned previously; the interior has been replaced and looks like new. All the vinyl seats are in excellent shape as well as the dash, door panels and center console. This car has obviously been well-built, and extremely well-maintained by the previous owner.
This car appears to have all its original sheet metal. All the chrome has either been polished or re-plated; the stainless has all been restored to a high shine; the glass is all in excellent shape with no cracks or chips.
This is a unique opportunity to own a Hemi convertible for a fraction of the price of an original!
