This was the only one year that gave the GTX Chrysler’s seriously sinister fuselage styling with the full front overhang making the headlights look like the eyes of a criminal lurking in the darkness. And speaking of darkness, you know black is the color you want for a powerful machine like this. But more than just the perfect hue, this one has all the right elements for muscle car aggression. The full-width rear spoiler, bold red GTX script on the trunklid, and of course, there’s no missing the side strobe stripes that run down the front fender and draw even more attention to the optional Performance Hood. Bumpers on this car really are a credit to the creativity of the Mopar designers. This was before the new laws, and so the rear one integrates perfectly into the bodywork, and the front one is an artful corral for those sinister headlights. It’s touches like these that make this one-year GTX so special. Open the door, and you’ll find one of the best interiors you will ever see in a GTX. This was the premium end of the Plymouth lineup and showcases the advantages of the few who were willing to make the extra investment. Where most muscle cars are dark-and-stark budget machines, this car features a seriously attractive white interior that coordinates nicely with the exterior hood stripes. High back bucket seats and a center console are what we all look for in a premium classic muscle car, and this even has that and so much more. We love all the factory-correct pieces, from the three-spoke steering wheel with Plymouth logo, to the original AM radio for display, to factory wood appearance paneling throughout the dash. It’s almost like a time machine. One place where there are modern improvements is under the hood… but you might have to look carefully. The advantage of the GTX was the 440 cubic-inch Super Commando V8 came standard with the package. This top dog motor you see here is the same one installed by the St. Louis factory over four decades ago. It still looks correct today with the Super Commando air cleaner and bold orange engine block radiating power from within the dark engine bay. But it now inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and exhales with greater thunder thanks to long tube headers that feed an X-pipe dual exhaust. But more than just flexing its muscles, this GTX is great on the road, too. The coupe’s premium package included a heavy duty suspension, and that’s joined by power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission. On top of that, this one has received some terrific modern upgrades for superior control such as four-wheel disc brakes and modern performance tires on 17-inch alloys. This muscle machine comes complete with all the paperwork you want, including the original window sticker, owner’s manual, maintenance records, and build receipts. So you’re looking at huge power, serious Mopar rarity, and all the right documentation. This is that perfect all around classic car. It can all be yours if your quick enough to grab this deal.
