Plymouth GTX 440
The Plymouth GTX, the end of an era. In 1967 the first Plymouth GTX was launched. Its goal? An ideal mix of style and performance. The GTX could be recognised by its special grille, racing striping, air intake and a rear end that we had seen once before. Namely, that of the Satellite. Secretly, the car had a whole different purpose than an ideal mix of style and performance. The Plymouth GTX 440 had to compete against ‘the big boys’. Like the Camaro SS, Mustang Shelby and the Dodge Charger. Because let’s face it, air vents, racing stripes and Mopar… It says it all.
In 1971, they decided in St. Louis to give the car a new look and that’s how the Fuselage was born. This model had much rounder lines and was the direct result of continuous aero testing that Chrysler had been involved in. It proved its worth on the NASCAR circuit where this design led Richard Petty to 21 crown victories and the very first Winston Cup title of that season.
Our fuselage is originally from Germany and was brought to the Netherlands in 2015 to drive the neighbourhood crazy. Underneath the ‘Power Bulge’ is a 375 HP Plymouth 440 7.2 litre Mopar V8, also known as the ‘Super Commando 440’. She has recently been fully serviced by the specialist and is ready to be let loose on the streets. Will we see you soon?I'm interested in this object
