1968 Plymouth HEMI GTX

The GTX was based on the 2 door Belvedere and dubbed as the "Gentleman's Muscle Car." Of the 18,940 GTX models built, there were 450 who paid $564 for the optional HEMI engine. This beautiful GTX is 1 of those 450. Under the hood is a 426cid/415hp HEMI V8 engine with two 4-barrel carburetors. Sold at Barret-Jackson Palm Beach in 2009 for $64,900.

This 1:64 diecast model was done by Greenlight Collectibles for their Auction Block series.
