According to Chrysler, this car doesn’t exist. Remember that for 1967, the only way to get a 426 Hemi in your Plymouth was to buy a flashy GTX or a limited-production RO23 Super Stock. Hemi-powered, low-line sedans (aka pillar coupes) like this one were technically not available. But don’t tell Bob Brodmerkle. Wearing Sox & Martin team colors, Bob brought his ’67 Street Hemi sedan to the ’11 event and blew minds. With its original RL21J71180259 VIN, there’s no doubt it’s a real car—one of a handful of ’67 Street Hemi sedans that slipped through the cracks. Some did question Bob’s definition of “restoration.” To purists, its Ford 9-inch, CalTracs rear suspension, rollcage, frame connectors, aluminum radiator, Race Hemi, and non-stock graphics were major boo-boos. Then again, it’s Bob’s car.
