The '67 GTX was one Hot Car in it's heyday. This was Plymouth's muscle car version of the
Belvedere that was equally at home on the street or strip. A quick glance under the hood tells the
whole story. The '67 was the first Plymouth to wear the soon-to-be-legendary GTX badges. The
standard engine was the Super Commando 400 V-8 and the top option was the 426 Hemi. The
clean and simple looks made it's mark as a no-compromise street racer. It didn't hurt to have a few
big names like Richard Petty and Sox and Martin lending some racing credence to the new kid on
the block. Repeated NASCAR wins during the '67 season helped beef up the car's reputation.
Plymouth definitely had a winner among the young fast car crowd that was just starting to emerge.

Revell kit #7359 was release back in the early '90s. Typical Revell quality although fitting the
interior in the body was a bit of a challenge and the rear bumper doesn't fit the body right.  Molded
in exterior badging was removed and replaced with Model Car Garage #606 photo etch details for
the Revell kit. Engine compartment was detailed using Detail Master pre-wired distributor and
battery hardware, Verlinden Products hoses for the heater hoses and pieces of fine wiring for the
battery cables. Finished with Model Master Arctic Blue Metallic enamel. Chrome trim was done
with Bare Metal Foil.
