Meet the only Medium Copper Metallic 1967 Plymouth Hemi GTX Convertible ever produced. In fact, this 1967 Plymouth Hemi GTX Convertible is one of only 17 Hemi GTX convertibles ordered in 1967, the first year Plymouth offered the GTX as a model in the Belvedere lineup. It defines the word “rare.” Its styling was so refined that Plymouth referred to it as “the gentleman’s muscle car.”
You just can’t take your eyes off of this car, can you? You love the hood scoops, hood mounted turn signal indicators and the chrome trimmed interior with the 150-mph speedometer. Read the Galen Govier report that tells how this car is the only Medium Coper Metallic Hemi GTX convertible ordered with the 426 option that year. It also sports the rare metallic copper interior. And note some of the unique options, such as power disc brakes, power windows, light group with clock, headrests, bumper guards front and rear, Magnum 500 wheels with redline tires and “radio delete”.
The seller says the 1967 Plymouth Hemi GTX Convertible received a complete ground up restoration and looks fabulous. The matching motor received a complete rebuild and has been driven less than 1000 miles. And there it is, the “Elephant”, the optional dual 4-barrel 426 ci Hemi V8 motor, which cranks out an astonishing 425 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 490 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. Just the sheer massive size of the Hemi 426/425 “chrome dome” engine is impressive to look at. Chrysler published promotional materials on the ’67 Hemi GTX which stated that the car would go 0-60 in 4.8 seconds and do the quarter-mile in 13.5 seconds at 105 mph. And that was right out of the showroom.
Documentation on this ’67 Hemi GTX includes: an original build sheet, Galen Govier report, Chrysler Historical documention, service receipts and IBM punch card copy. Ten Hemi GTX’s were produced like this one with the Torqueflite automatic transmission.
The front suspension uses a tornsion bar and shocks with ball joints to keep the tires even with the road. The rear suspension is a six-leaf with shock absorbers intended to let the GTX hold the road better than most cars of this size with this much power.
