1971 Plymouth Hemi GTX - $347k

The most expensive Hemi produced and the most highly optioned GTX made. $6,592.75 in 1971, more expensive than a Cadillac Coupe Deville. Unrestored with 49,416 miles. Original Bahama Yellow paint. 1 of 2 Hemi GTXs built with sunroof. 426/425 HP Hemi V-8 engine. 4-speed transmission with Pistol Grip. Super Track Pack 4.10 gears. Power steering, brakes and windows. Bucket seats with console. AM/FM stereo with 8-track and Dictaphone.
Highly-decorated soldier Larry Dickson, who had returned from Vietnam, wanted the best.

The long list of options added $2,885 to the GTX’s base of $3,707. A handful of aftermarket parts were added. He owned this 1971 Plymouth Hemi GTX until his death.
The final registration expired in 1982 and the vehicle sat for the next 20 years. It was bought from Dickson's estate and became a cornerstone of the Wellborn museum collection.
This is a very rare and desirable machine. It appeared at Mecum's Kissimmee and made $347k.
