Chrysler worked hard to position the Plymouth GTX as a luxurious, high-performance alternative to the inexpensive muscle cars that everyone else was selling.

Not only was it equipped with all the pavement-twisting horsepower you could get in more basic models, it also featured a ton of luxury options that could be added to create one-of-a-kind vehicles which would suit any car buyers taste.

On top of all that variety, the GTX also got an extra dose of sound deadening materials and an upscale look to its interior appointments, making it truly a gentleman's hot rod
