Bring A Trailer spied this nice Sport Satellite on eBay. Originally a 383 car, it now sports a nicely built 440. Fresh paint in the original sleeper metallic gold screams commuter car but the fat rubber and lumpy idle hint at something else (while the steering wheel and shifter scream “Replace me”). Follow the eBay bidding here. More pics after the jump!
I can deal with a lot of things when looking for a new old Mopar. Non-running is fine. A few states away is fine. Modifications? That’s ok, if they are reversible. Non-number matching? No biggie. Rust? Not a huge fan, but hey, when you are talking about something 40+ years old there might be a little rust. But a black Chevy spray bombed engine bay like the one on this 1970 Plymouth Satellite convertible on eBay? Instant turn off and deal breaker.
How about you?
So what if you don’t live on the West Coast orin the Southwest, you don’t have a lot of money and yet you want an affordable 68-70 B-body project. Good luck, right? Well, if you are patient, good things do come along from time to time. Like this cool numbers-matching big block 1968 Sport Satellite on Cleveland Craigslist. It’s been garaged since ’78, doesn’t seem too rusty and has a great color combo. More pics plus ad text after the jump!
You’re looking at a 1966 Plymouth Satellite still wearing it’s groovy lace paint job that was laid down in the mid 1970s. I’m digging the far out Cragars man! Just to make it perfect, it’s a factory Hemi car, topped by two Carter 4-bbls and backed up by an A833 4 speed. Get the details at MoparMax. More pictures after the jump!
Today’s reader’s ride is a very cool Satellite with an even cooler story! Here’s the word from Donald:
Here is my 1966 Plymouth Satellite, purchased new in 1966 by my father at Boggs Motor Company in Statesville, NC. It is all original except for the seat covers (I have ordered original replacements which should be installed soon). It currently has something over 180,000 miles on it. The 318 engine was rebuilt at around 150,000 miles with no modifications except for being bored .30 over. No one but my mechanic believes it but it has solid lifters, and he didn’t believe it till he took the valve covers off! As far as paint, it was hit in the passenger door in the 70’s by a car which rolled off in a parking lot and my Dad had a cheap paint job put on it as a part of that repair. The trunk cover, headliner, dash, everything is pretty pristine for the age and the am radio still works every time I turn it on. The torqueflite transmission has never been out of it and it has front bucket seats with the shifter in the console. I have the receipt(a little over $2300), certicard, build sheet and owners manual. Dad purchased the car while I was in service and so I never drove it much till I bought it from him for $1000, which he forgave most of. One particular treasure associated with the car is a set of photographs of it when it was brand new, inside, outside, engine compartment. The folks sent them to me when I was overseas. There is obviously great sentimental attachment to “Old Blue” and I lovingly drive it every week!
