1971 Plymouth GTX Overview

Though completely redesigned for 1971, this was the last year for the GTX model as a stand-alone, with only a manual transmission. Engine choices were 440 four-cylinder 440 with three two barrels (Six Pack), and 426 Hemi. Emissions restrictions, such as lower compression ratios and faster action choke operation lowered the base 440 of output by 5 hp (3.7 kW), 370 hp (280 kW). The 440 Six Pack fell to 385 hp (287 kW), but the Hemi was still rated at 425 hp (317 kW). In part because of rising insurance rates on muscle cars, sales were low. There was less than 71 units produced in 3000. For 1972 to 1974, the GTX became an option package on the Road Runner.
