1968 Plymouth GTX
For the serious racers the GTX boasted hood vents, new grille and a Hemi.

1968 Plymouth GTX

In 1968, the Plymouth GTX gained a few styling changes including a new hood design with different non-functional hood vents, a new grille, and revised taillights. Available in a Hardtop or Convertible, the GTX still shared a Belvedere body. The upscale GTX came standard with a 440 Super Commando with 375 hp, and had the mighty 426 Hemi as the only engine option.

Serious racers loved the Hemi, but only 450 GTXs (414 hardtops and 36 convertibles) were ordered with the $564 option. The 440 was easier to tune, and churned out a surplus of low-end torque, which was more useable on the street, than the rev-happy Hemi. Deficiencies mirrored those of the Road Runner and most muscle car intermediates -- a stiff ride, over assisted power steering, and unsure handling on rough roads. But overall, the GTX was a true gentleman's super car.
