Introduced in 1967, the Plymouth GTX offered buyers both luxury and performance from the extensive B-body lineup. As such, only the largest engines within the Mopar portfolio were fitted to these cars, along with a variety of standard equipment. Unique styling elements included a revised grill, hood scoops, and a “pit-stop” gas cap. After a redesign in 1968, which adopted the handsome coke-bottle shape seen across the range of Chrysler Corporation products, the GTX arrived standard with the 440-cubic-inch V-8 engine and a three-speed Torqueflite transmission.
For an additional $604, buyers could opt for the legendary 426-cubic-inch Hemi V-8, which compled a performance package of out-accelerating just about any other performance street car of the era. Few chose this pricey option, however, and just over 200 coupes and convertibles were believed to have been sold for the 1969 model year.
