Reader’s Rides: Carl Brown’s 1969 Plymouth Sport Satellite

How about another ’69 Satellite? This one is owned by Carl Brown, and he has had it since new!

This is my 1969 Plymouth Sport Satellite. I purchased the car from the original owner, who had ordered the car new in the fall of 1968 from my dad who was a Plymouth Salesman. I have everything but the window sticker, even the order that was written up with the AM/FM radio. The problem there was he deleted it the next day because he didn’t know if that “FM thing” would last. The car has the Kelsey-Hayes front disc brakes and the manual height and adjustable drivers seat. The interior is all original except for the bucket seat cushion inserts which I replaced due to  splitting in the seams. We are three generations of Chrysler car people. This car covers all three. Lots of stories here.



Reader’s Rides: Darrell Dunivan’s 1969 Plymouth Satellite

Darrell Dunivan from Cadet, Missouri owns this cool B-Body. Writes Darrell:

I got the car 3 years ago,it was completely taken apart,no glass no wiring fenders and trunk off, just out of the paint shop. My dad and I put it all back together and got it on the road, been driving it for about 4 months. I also did the seats and carpet myself and it still needs door panels and headliner.
