Hemi GTX Accidental Discovery
Taking the long way home is always the best option, because you never know what you will find along the way. Such was the case when we found Rod’s & Hot Rods in a small town in Alabama. The owner showed us several pallets full of engine blocks—many of them 426 Hemis—then his 1967 GTX, one of 1 of 312 produced with a 426 Hemi and a four-speed transmission. He’s the second owner of the car and has owned it since 1967. The GTX has been sitting since 1983, with less than 65,000 miles on the odometer.
