Fastest American Muscle Cars of The 60s and 70s
23. 1969 GTX
The GTX had plenty of speed and performance. Most of this was due to the fact that it was outfitted with Chrysler’s 426 in.³ 7.0 L Hemi engine. They called this engine the “elephant.” However, as much as this one claims a firm seat on the fastest American muscle cars list, it was hurt a bit by the Road Runner. The reason? Well, the road runner was offered as a convertible while the GTX was not. To that end, Plymouth made a few minor cosmetic changes yet nothing of any substance. In 1969, only 701 of these vehicles were produced, making them a truly rare classic. If you have one, keep it waxed and shiny. You are sitting on a gold mine. Unless, of course, you’re sitting behind the wheel. Then you’re sitting in one of the fastest cars ever created. Go ahead and hit the gas, we won’t tell!
