Ever have one of those moments when you find a spectacular muscle car that seems too good to be true? The ‘rarest of the rare’ which has survived almost 50 years of vehicle downsizing trends, fuel thirsty gearheads and stoplight fisticuffs? Well, you don’t have to worry about getting pinched back to reality this time because this fully restored 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX convertible is a REAL DEAL, 426 Hemi 4-speed car! Not only is it an extremely hard to find Hemi GTX, it’s also one of only SEVEN Hemi powered 4-speed GTX convertibles to ever roll off of Ma Mopar’s assembly line. With impeccable documentation, a major feature in Muscle Car Review and a long stint as a centerpiece of well-known Michigan Mopar collector Harold Sullivan’s legendary garage, it is by far one of the nicest and most exclusive Plymouths on the planet.

According to the Chrysler Historical Services documents included with the sale, this super rare Belvedere GTX left Chrysler’s St. Louis, Missouri assembly plant in April of 1967 on its way to Hess Sales and Service in Tell City, Indiana. And, according to the owner history included with the sale, the initial owner kept the car for seven years before it began a Midwest to east coast journey that would eventually end up at RK Motors Charlotte. Clean and ready to show tomorrow, it has obviously benefitted from a very extensive frame off restoration at some point in the not too distant past; but to ensure everything is in spectacular working order, The RKM Performance Center spent 60 days fine tuning the big Hemi and getting everything into tip-top mechanical shape. In case you don’t know, RKM Performance Center’s restoration shop is probably the BEST place a car like this could end up because we have performed two of the most exhaustive and historically accurate ground up concours GTX restorations on two exceptionally rare 1967 Plymouth GTX HEMI cars. Our award winning, magazine featured WW1 white automatic 1967 GTX Hemi sold for $140K (http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/inventory/1967-Plymouth-Belvedere-GTX/132566) and our BB1 black 4-speed 1967 GTX Hemi sold for $160K just last month (http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/inventory/1967-Plymouth-Belvedere-GTX/132685).

When you’re restoring a car of this caliber to the level you see here, you have to start with an unmolested, clean body. That way, reproduction parts can be used only when necessary and the car retains as much of its authentic factory fresh feel as possible. During this GTXs complete frame-off restoration, new high quality quarter panels were applied and, along with the cars original body panels, sanded to a smooth, exceptional surface. Then, a thick coat of primer was sprayed on, allowed days to cure, and worked free of any defects that might prevent a better-than-showroom foundation. Once the primer was completely dry and defect free, an impressive coat of correct Chrysler code R Yellow was professionally applied and sealed with a tough, glossy clearcoat shell. The result is one arrow-straight Plymouth that has no gremlins, no thin spots and no short cuts what so ever. Fit and finish is worlds above what originally came out of Chrysler’s factory 44 years ago; and the car is an absolutely stunning show piece which catches the light perfectly in our RK Motors Charlotte photo booth.

Taking a lesson in style and brand awareness from the likes Ford, Chevrolet and Pontiac, Plymouth outfitted the mighty 1967 GTX with some hot styling cues which better differentiated it from the divisions more plebian offerings. At the front of the car, a GTX exclusive bright stainless grille holds a traditional red, white and blue centerpiece between four halogen headlights. Below that grille, a pristine body-width chrome bumper displays re-located square marker lights, and above that grille a black inlayed “Plymouth” script sprawls beneath a centered “426” hood ornament. Behind that ornament, GTX exclusive chrome trimmed hood scoops sit in front of correct gray 3-speed windshield wipers and a correctly tinted like-new windshield. At the top of that windshield, pristine stainless trim attaches a great looking correct white top in front of a straight and flat trunk which advertises “Hemi and “GTX” to lesser stoplight warriors. At the sides of the car, pristine, dent free rocker trim runs below square chrome door handles to like-new stainless wheel well trim, and a GTX exclusive ‘pit stop’ fuel filler adds a little race car flair. On the front fenders “Belvedere GTX” emblems perfectly complement subtle “Hemi” badges, and a traditional passenger’s side gold pentastar markets to any curious sidewalk dwellers. At the back of the car, GTX exclusive concave stainless trunk trim aligns perfectly with clear, factory taillights, and a second showroom fresh chrome bumper hangs above factory correct stainless exhaust tips.

Under this GTXs hood, you’ll find a 1966 model 426 cubic inch Hemi that produces 425 horsepower and 470 lb./ft. of torque. Nicknamed the ‘elephant motor’ because of its large dimensions and heavy weight, Chryslers ‘street’ Hemi was derived from specially developed race engines that would prove to be lethal on NASCAR tracks and NHRA drag strips across the country. At the top of the block, two correct 4-barrel carburetors breathe through a mirror-like chrome air cleaner which wears correct Mopar decals. Below those carburetors, a spotless ‘Hemi Orange’ block wears correctly restored wrinkle finish valve covers and restored original factory exhaust manifolds. At the front of the motor, reproduction belts spin a correct 37 amp alternator above a correct fan and a Hemi-exclusive rebuilt power steering pump. Fire is supplied by reproduction wires, a reproduction coil and a correct distributor, and cooling is provided by a correct 26 inch heavy duty radiator with a correct Hemi-exclusive fan shroud. This is one of the finest detailed Hemis on the planet! Refocus your eyes on the rest of the engine compartment and you’ll find a correct reproduction red top battery, correct hoses and clamps, restored horns, a 1967 GTX exclusive washer fluid bottle and a factory fresh brake booster. The hood is secured with original hood latch hardware, and the entire engine bay is coated from top to bottom in the same excellent looking code R yellow as the car’s exterior panels.

Take one look under this pristine GTX and you’ll find an undercarriage that has been restored to the same exacting standards as the car’s engine bay. Factory correct overspray highlights exceptionally clean floorpans that likely haven’t seen much daylight since the cars restoration. Behind the engine, an original A833 4-speed manual transmission sends power through a pristine driveshaft to an original Dana 60 Track Pak rear end. Inside that rear end, a factory correct Sure Grip differential houses tall Hemi-exclusive 3.54 gears, and on the outside of that rear end, correct chalk marks and maintenance tags add authenticity. At the front of the car, an original K-frame engine cradle and skid plate show very few signs of impact and a correct factory sway bar adds strength to the cars rebuilt torsion bar suspension. At the back of the car, correct firm ride shocks augment correct six leaf springs in front of a new stainless fuel tank that sends fuel through new stainless fuel lines. Braking comes courtesy of heavy duty power front discs and power rear drums, and exhaust is handled by a new mandrel bent system which sends spent gases into an H-pipe crossover and two factory replacement mufflers. The big block power is put to the ground through 14 inch correct chrome Magnum 500 wheels that wear vintage looking 7.75×14 Firestone deluxe champion tires.

Open this GTX’s solid doors and you’ll find one of the coolest interiors ever bolted behind a big block Hemi engine. Billed as the ‘Gentleman’s muscle car’ and finished in correct P6X trim, it brings a real sense of class to a car with a solemn and brutish nature. In front of the driver, the original rebuilt instrument cluster sits inside of a slick re-painted dash that’s capped by a supple and pliable dash pad. Below that cluster, like-new dash knobs sit beside a correct Plymouth Transaudio AM radio that’s centered within great looking stainless trim. Below the dash, an optional console holds Plymouth’s controversial, but equally cool canted tachometer in front of a correct Inland shifter and what seems like a mile finned chrome trim. Below the console, new black carpet is protected by yellow stitched GTX floor mats, and at the sides of the console, fully restored saddle-grain vinyl seats face chrome trimmed foot pedals and a sweet looking chrome ringed steering wheel that features a correct black rim. New door panels carry stainless accents and chrome door handles to a brand new black convertible cowl that sits over a fully restored trunk. Inside that trunk, a new matt divides a correct bumper jack and fifth chrome Magnum 500 wheel and spare tire. From the blinding stainless trim, to the crystal clear courtesy lamps, this is a no-excuses, no holds barred restored interior.

As you might imagine, the documentation included with this car is both significant and extensive. We have copies of the original broadcast sheet, a complete Galen Govier breakdown of that broadcast sheet, the car’s fender tag and VIN, Chrysler Historical Services paperwork, an owner history which includes the name of the car’s original owner and pictures of when the car was brand new, a copy of the Muscle Car Review in which the car was featured and a cool Hemi muscle car book.

This 1967 Plymouth GTX Hemi convertible is a text book example of a world class, no excuses muscle car. Exceptionally rare and incredibly documented, it’s a near flawless Mopar centerpiece that is the perfect investment for any collector who wants to own one of the finest classic cars on the planet.
