|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.
