Some vintage Mopar muscle cars, such as the HEMI ‘Cuda and Superbirds, consistently sell for big-ticket sums, but Mecum is set to auction a desirable HEMI-powered Plymouth at its upcoming Houston auction that won’t break the bank quite as much: a 1969 Plymouth HEMI GTX.
While this GTX won’t command $300,000 or more like some HEMI Cudas and Superbirds have, it’s still mighty desirable. Details on its ownership and service history and any potential resotrations are scarce, however Mecum claims this well cared for GTX is one of just 98 HEMI hardtops produced with an automatic transmission. Other add-ons include power steering, power brakes, the ‘Sun Super Tach II’ tachometer, air grabber good scoops, buckets seats, a center console and Plymouth Magnum 500 wheels.
Mecum hasn’t made a guess as to what this GTX will sell for when it crosses the auction block in Texas in early April, but just above $100,000 seems to be a fair guess. A similarly-equipped 1970-model year HEMI GTX is currently for sale on Hemmings for $100,000 and this example looks a bit more show-ready than that car, so we assume it’s worth a bit more.
