When the muscle car craze reached its pinnacle in the late 1960s, American automakers found that even buyers who were initially drawn to luxury suddenly wanted more horsepower. This magnificent Brilliant Red is part of the Brothers Collection and, in addition to being in excellent condition, is a highly unusual car. Just 10 of the 17 Convertible Plymouth Belvedere GTX muscle cars equipped with the 426 HEMI in 1967 had automatic gearbox, and this is one of them.
The letter X has always held a certain mystical allure. From “X marks the spot” to “x factors” and “x files”, the letter has often been associated with the unknown or even secret things. In the world of classic cars, the letter X takes on a new level of excitement, particularly when it’s attached to a rare and powerful vehicle like the 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX 426 Hemi Convertible.
But it’s what’s under the hood that truly defines the Belvedere GTX. The 426 Hemi V8 engine was an uncommon choice for this automobile, and it’s a beast. It boasts an amazing 425 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque, indicating that this automobile has significant muscle. The driver and passengers may experience the full force of the Hemi as they go down the road with the convertible top down.
The inside is equally as spectacular as the outside. The black leather seats are elegant and comfy, and the wood-grain dashboard lends a sense of class to the car. The traditional steering wheel and dashboard instruments go back to a time when automobiles were designed for driving rather than merely transportation.
Combining comfort, style and performance the 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX became one of the most wanted muscle cars. Play and enjoy the video below:
