Plymouth is a great name in the automobile industry and with its many successful models it has written a legacy which not many other manufacturers can touch. There were hundreds of thousands of Plymouth cars built before 1967 but despite that there wasn’t even a single one to have the great performances image which was pioneered by the 67 GTX.

The new 67 GTX concept was based on the nice looking hardtop of the Belvedere model (the two door model) and it featured a good looking tail panel and a unique grille, a chrome gas cap and stimulated hood scoops. If you could afford them, you could also ask for twin racing stripes. As far as the interior goes, there wasn’t even a single bad thing to say about it, even from the most demanding of drivers. It was a state of the art cabin which featured embossed vinyl, bucket seats and a lot of detail.

So the GTX was sporting a TorqueFlite automatic transmission and also very nice bucket seats and the transmission used a floor shifter or a column. If you wanted, you could also go for the four speed manual gearbox. This was optional.

What the new 67 GTX wanted to achieve was speed, speed and more speed. Thus it featured a very nice standard power train which would be capable of producing an enormous amount of power but with less effort. The new engine spawned with this new model was the 375-bhp 440-cid V8 which was also was referred to as the Super Commando 440. It was actually Chrysler’s powerful engine which was designed for big cars but this model was improved to perform on high RPM and it also had a valve train and a revised camshaft, good exhaust systems and a free flowing intake.

If you were a speed maniac the only option you could go with would be the 425 Bhp 426 Hemi, which I guess it would be enough for every speed chaser. This upgrade generally cost around $600 and sold just over 700 units.
