Unrestored 1967 440 GTX drag racing for the first time in 38 years. This 1967 440 4 speed Plymouth GTX was stored in a warehouse in 1973. I purchased it in 1998 and was the first person to drive it on the road since '73. I put it in a shed awaiting restoration 9 years ago. On the day this video was taken (October 30, 2011) it literally had dirt dauber nests and cob webs still in the engine compartment.

This 1967 GTX is a super clean, near-survivor 4-speed car with 99% of its
original parts. Present is the original fender tag, original distributor
tag, original seat tags and all original sheet-metal.
Understanding that we had a 100% correct, complete numbers-matching car, we
decided to send the original engine, transmission and air cleaner off to
Shepard's Automotive. In case you've never heard of Shepard's, they were
founded by Larry Shepard, Sr., an engineer at Chrysler Corporation in the
1960s, who worked under Tom Hoover (the Godfather of the HEMI at Chrysler
when they rolled out the street HEMI in 1966). Larry was later an engineer
at Mopar Performance and has literally written the book on Mopar
performance engines (in fact, I think he's written five or six). With an
impressive bank of NOS and original parts and an even more impressive
knowledge base, there was nobody out there better suited to restore the
drive-train in our GTX.
With the doors, fenders, deck lid and hood removed, the entire body was
placed on a rotisserie and sent off for dipping and e-coating. After the
body was returned to our shop, we completed the metal work quickly, which
was limited to a few small patches in the lower driver's side quarter
panel. Because we replicated the original factory welds, you wouldn't know
that the work was done if we didn't tell you. As we learned when we
received the body shell back from the dip shop, the original floor pans,
trunk floor and floor pans were perfect, with no prior rot or rust.
With the metal work complete, the car was primed, block-sanded,
block-sanded some more and then block-sanded again for good measure and
then painted in base coat/clear coat. Only after the base paint and clear
coat were applied was the Medium Red Metallic sport stripes painted on,
exactly the way it was done on the assembly line. If you ever see a
restored 1967 GTX with the painted stripes flush with the base color, it's
WRONG. On the underside, our restoration shop replicated the factory primer
processes, complete with blown overspray.
After the drivetrain was properly bolted into place, our shop installed the
original and now restored Dana 60 rear axle and restored rear suspension.
We installed brand new stainless fuel lines, brake lines, brake hoses,
grommets, weather-stripping and gaskets. A new fuel tank was bolted into
place, and a complete, reproduction concours HEMI Exhaust handles the soundtrack. The entire
braking system was reinstalled, using a combination of restored original
and replacement parts. After the front suspension was in place, the
restored and extremely hard to find 1967-only HEMI steel wheels were bolted
up to the car, complete with four brand new reproduction redline tires.
Finishing off the restored rolling stock were the four original, restored
HEMI-only dog dish caps.
Turning our attention to the interior, our in-house interior expert Ralph
Farinacci went to work. The front and rear seats and most of the interior
parts had been finished by Ralph over the prior three months and simply
needed to be installed. Ralph is a big believer in using original parts,
right down to original screws and that's how he approached the restoration
of the interior on this GTX. Of course, there are new door panels and vinyl
seat covers, but every other piece is original to the car. The original
dash pad was restored, along with the original gauge cluster. The original
steering wheel was expertly refinished to better-than-new condition. Small
touches like original restored kick panels and an original rear seat
speaker set this car apart from the "catalog restorations" we see so often.
1967 GTXs have boatloads of interior chrome and every single piece was
redone to concours standards.
Since the restoration was completed, this amazing GTX has been gently and
carefully broken in and dialed in and is a true investment grade car which
can be enjoyed on summer nights or rolled off a trailer at any concourse
event. We all have our ultimate cars-if the 1967 HEMI GTX is yours, you
can't do much better than this one!

The car started out as a regular impala with a 3 speed! I purchased this
car 1 year ago from the 2nd owner of 28 years who looked for one of these
cars for 2 years before finding this amazing gem! I am looking to sell only
because I just have too many car so a few have to go! He was very sad to
let her go and I may be just as sad when it does go so please understand
that I do not have to sell it but I can only say to anyone looking at my
car...FIND ANOTHER ONE LIKE THIS!. The car came from Arizona with no rust
and original paint, interior, chrome, glass, floors, trunk, etc.! The color

original paint cars and we have seen original paint cars but almost
everyone I have ever seen has had a blow in of some kind somewhere or been
clear coated recently etc. This is 100% the
