1971 GTX 440+6BBL 
Super Trak Pak Automatic

Sassy-est GTX Ever!


When introduced in 1967, the GTX, nicknamed
the Boss, was Plymouth's  stand alone flagship
musclecar equipped with the most cubic inches (440ci.)
and torque (390) of any of the mills offered by Ford or GM.
The 1967 GTX took no prisoners on the 1320 and the local pike.


In 1968, Plymouth introduced its all new coke bottle body
style and new low budget Musclecar called the Road Runner
that took the Musclecar world by storm. The
Road Runner overshadowed every musclecar offered
from any of the big three even the GTX.

The GTX continued thru 1971 in the Plymouth line
up, offering its exclusive 440ci. mill to all that wanted
luxury and big performance. In 1971, the GTX and
Road Runner for the first time ever had their
own platform, no longer sharing the Belvedere platform.
The 1971 model was redesigned from headlight
to taillight, with an exclusive chassis built specifically as
a 2 door model, with styling cues that focused on
brute performance that gave the GTX a true definition
of performance. With offerings like G60x15 Polyglass
tires that were the largest ever offered on a
production car up to that time, An Air Grabber Hood
that opened at the moment the driver flipped the
switch on the fully equipped Rallye Dash, A Slap Stik
shifter that allowed you to ratchet thru the
gears with no chance of missing a single shift,
Bucket seats that held you in place during every shift,
Exclusive badging and striping that let everyone know
the Boss was back for 1971.

Back in the day

As found in the 80's by my friend Tom Q.

This GTX is a Survivor. It maintains 90% of its Original Paint,
Chrome, Vinyl Top, Emblems, Decals, Wheels, Trunk
Accessories, Engine bay, and undercarriage.
This GTX has been preserved for the future
Mopar hobbyist to research and debate how
Muscle Cars of the era were built.
