1972 Plymouth Satellite now a 440+6 Road Runner tribute.
This Satellite was originally a 318 2bbl Sherwood Forest Green base car (see VIN info below) and now it is a 440+6 Roadrunner tribute (clone) and it was repainted in 2010 and the seats were recovered plus a new rug. The car had only 12,051 miles on it (verified by title & rmv ) when I bought it May 2015 !!!!, and it had the 440 w/Holley 750cfm 4bbl setup on it with the modified 727 and the Dana rear.

The wheels: (https://www.wheelvintiques.com/wheels/chrysler-o-e.html)
Update 5/11/19: I removed the 750cfm Holley 4 bbl and Edelbrock Torker intake and installed the Edelbrock 6BBL intake plus the 1350cfm Holley 6 bbl carbs (it took 6 hours to install, taking my time and making sure it was done right) also I had the dirty old white strobe stripe changed to a new gold reflective stripe and replaced the 440 hood & trunk decals w/ the 440+6 decals.
I got the complete 6 bbl kit from Herb's Parts The BEST there is Folks !!!!! I Always Trust Herb's !!!
The 6BBL: (http://www.herbsparts.com/proddetail.asp?prod=6PAKRBENG&cat=719)
Update 6/2/19: Replaced the stock 318 leaf springs (5 driver & 5 pass) with custom Super Stock leaf springs ( 6 driver, 7 pass ) and with 2 1/2" lift built into them and now the car handles MUCH BETTER. It's much more stiffer in turns and does not bounce on bumps at all. Also changed the exhaust pipes to straight exits instead of the California turn downs it came with.
The Springs: (https://www.generalspringkc.com/product_p/33-907.htm) Normally they come as 6l & 6r but my springs are 6l & 7r (custom made).
Rear spring, strobe stripe & decal work done by: (https://www.randysautos.net/directions) This is a local Massachusetts mopar guru and always has something going on, his personal cars are legendary and he's the nicest guy you'll ever meet......he always has some killer muscle cars for sale !! go talk to him and check him out !!
Update 7/26/19: Added the vintage, rare & legendary Direct Connection "Tall" valve covers (PN#3769415 (right) and #3769420 (left) to give the motor a more correct factory/stock look (painted with Herb's Hemi Orange engine paint (http://www.herbsparts.com/proddetail.asp?prod=2024&cat=825)..... I also updated the manual's pictures.
And yes the car fk'ing screams !!! I mean WOW !!!! Holy Shi... "Hold it Luke - we're headin' for the barn !!!!!...YEE HAWWW !!!!"
