Get Your Hands On This ’67 Belvedere GTX Super Stock Clone

Check out this ’67 Plymouth Belvedere we found on RacingJunk. The current owner states that when he purchased the car, it was proclaimed to be an ex-Sox & Martin car. Although the car currently wears GTX emblems, it is actually a Belvedere ll that was converted into the higher-trim-level GTX clone. The car has a 518-inch Wedge engine was built by legendary engine builder Clay Smith.

A built 727 TorqueFlite transmission with trans brake changes gears and delivers power to the factory Dana 60 rear end. The car itself is believed to be an original four-speed car, and the pedals are still in it to prove the claim.

While no original GTX or the Sox & Martin car it was once claimed to be, this '67 Belvedere still has what it takes to be competitive.

The seller also mentions that when he bought the car, it may have been thought to be one of the rare factory RO23 “Body in White” race cars that ‘Ma Mopar put out as a drag race-only package. Also the current seller mentions the car has a rare VIN number, but it’s not visible in the advertisement, and he has no documentation to back it up. So yeah, there’s yet another claim…

The car has the looks of an old nostalgic super stock race car, but it would best serve as a good bracket car, or an excellent candidate in the Super Street 10.90 class. On the motor, the car runs low tens  at 130 mph, and the car is equipped with nitrous, but the owner has yet to use it. Putting aside all notions that it is probably not one of the rare factory drag cars, it is definitely a well-built turnkey bracket car that is well worth the asking price of $12,900, a very inexpensive way to go drag racing.
