Introduced in 1967, the Plymouth GTX was a serious contender on the street, relying on the simple formula of cubic inches and melting rubber to establish its supremacy. Although both Ford and General Motors offered competitive muscle cars, the GTX delivered the one-two punch of performance and reliability, even with its welterweight 383 cubic inch engine, never mind its middleweight 440 wedge head or the heavyweight prize fighting 427 Hemi that put it in a class of its own.

The GTX was the first Plymouth designed with performance as the first and foremost priority. Based on Plymouth ĺ s two-door Belvedere hardtop and convertible, it had just enough flair to make anybody - in anything - think twice about revving their engine next to it at a red light. The clues were subtle but clear: a special grille and tail panel, simulated hood scoops, and a ô pit stop ö chrome gas cap. More than just a big engine and four wheels, the interior was a thing of beauty with lots of brightwork, bucket seats, and embossed vinyl.

The 1967 Plymouth GTX presented here is a genuine black plate California car and has what is believed to be the original engine and drivetrain, with 59,700 miles showing on the odometer.

The recipient of a cosmetic restoration, it was stripped and repainted in its original colors, bright red with a black vinyl top, by Final Finish of Sparks, Nevada. No rust or body damage was discovered under the original paint. Even the five-spoke American Racing-style alloy wheels are from 1967 and fitted with a brand new set of red line tires, while the black interior has been completely redone to original style.

The 1967 Plymouth GTX was the optional performance car based on the Belvedere, but it was a fantastic piece of machinery. In 1990, Car & Driver put the 1967 Plymouth GTX 440 Super Commando in their top ten muscle cars of all time. Enthusiasts who have had the opportunity to experience the pavement shaking power the GTX produces would agree that this honor is well deserved.
