The Plymouth GTX, also known as the Plymouth Belvedere GTX, is a mid-sized, high-performance muscle car produced from 1967 to 1971. Although the production run of the "gentleman's hot rod" was relatively short, its appeal is long-lasting. Designed as the upscale version of the 1968 Plymouth Road Runner, the Plymouth GTX was sold as either a two-door hardtop (similar to the Dodge Coronet body) or soft-top convertible. By 1970, the convertible disappeared with the new design that added a "bulge hood" and brake scoops.
Plymouth GTX performance highlights
From the beginning of its production, the Plymouth GTX offered drivers powerful engine options, such as the 426 Hemi V8, which pushed out 425 horsepower, and the standard 440 V8 at 375 horsepower (or 370 hp in the final year). For better handling, check out the 1971 Plymouth GTX, which received a wider rear track. If speed is your main priority, the Plymouth Road Runner might be a better option, as the light version of the two models.
For all models, a three-speed automatic transmission was standard or drivers could select the four-speed manual option.
Plymouth GTX Style throughout the years
No matter which model year you look at, the Plymouth GTX is loaded with exterior and interior finishes that simply scream, "All-American muscle car."
By its last production run, the hood had evolved into the famous fuselage style with a front loop bumper. The dual-intake Air Grabber became available in 1969. The hood on the 1968 Plymouth GTX received a slight upgrade with a new grille and decorative hood vents. While there was no four-door option, the back row was easily accessible for passengers of all sizes. Are you looking for a Plymouth GTX for sale?
