Some vintage Mopar muscle automobiles, such as the HEMI ‘Cuda and Superbirds, regularly sell for big-ticket amounts, however Mecum is set to auction a preferable HEMI-powered Plymouth at its upcoming Houston auction that will not spend a lot quite as much: a 1969 Plymouth HEMI GTX.
Although this GTX won’t command $300,000 or more like some HEMI Cudas and Superbirds have, it’s still really desirable. Details on its ownership and service history and any prospective resotrations are limited, however Mecum states this well looked after GTX is among just 98 HEMI hardtops produced with an automatic transmission. Other add-ons consist of power steering, power brakes, the ‘Sun Super Tach II’ tachometer, air grabber great scoops, buckets seats, center console and Plymouth Magnum 500 wheels.
Mecum hasn’t provided a clue as to what this GTX will cost when it crosses the auction block in Texas in first week of April, but just above $100,000 appears to be a reasonable guess. A similarly-equipped 1970-model year HEMI GTX is presently for sale on Hemmings for $100,000 and this one looks a bit more show-ready than that car, so we presume it deserves a bit more.
