This was a long term, extremely high dollar restoration that I have owned since 1996. The friend I bought it from owned it for the 15 years prior.

Due to some medical issues and a few other things, I just can't find the time to enjoy the car anymore. It hasn't left my heated warehouse in 3.5 years. With the complete restoration taking nearly 17 years, I have really only put about 300 miles on since the restoration was complete. I have restored old Mopars for 45 years until my health stopped me. This restoration was professionally completed about 6 years ago.

I took it to two car shows and won trophies at both. The first show won FACTORY MUSCLE CAR Class. At the second show, I won Best of Show, so this is a proven show winner. Basically everything is new on this car; engine, transmission, rear end, and complete suspension. Because the car is black, you can look at it and see how straight the body is.

I personally know that you could never duplicate this car in this day and age for less than $60,000. And even then, it may be impossible to find all the NOS parts that are on this car. I have put a lot of thought into this and I will sell it for the closest offer to $45,000. You will also get all the extras that go with it.

If you need any additional pictures or information, please let me know!

Here is the story of my car, as told on the 1962-1965 Mopar Website where is was the January 2014 Mopar of the Month and was included in their calendar:

Restoring my 1965 Plymouth Satellite is finally “finished” after seventeen years. The restoration has truly been a labor of love over this very long time for me, despite health issues and having thirty-four surgeries during that time period.

In fact, I started calling my Plymouth “Widow Maker” because I was not sure that I would ever get the restoration finished before I went belly up for good. However, my oldest daughter married about the best paint and body guy you could ever find and together we finally got around to finishing this Mopar at his personal shop at their house.

I restored this Plymouth as a tribute to a good friend who drag raced it for about 15 years in the B Factory Experimental class before I purchased the Mopar from him. Sadly, he passed away from stomach cancer two months before the Plymouth was completed and he never got to see the finished product of all our hard work. He would have been especially tickled when he looked at the rear side windows where I had the original drag strip decals they used to give out reproduced for the six tracks that he used to run on, along with the official NHRA Decal. The glass also has the white Drag Race Class and Time Decals for the best time this car ever turned at a track. However that was with a whole lot stouter big block than I have in the car and that version also had an automatic race-built transmission at that time with a Trans Brake and 4.56 rear gears and slicks.

I guess the Plymouth would be classified now as a “day two restoration,” something like was done all of the time back in the day to personalize your car to your own tastes right after bringing it home from the dealership. The Plymouth now has a 500 plus horsepower 426 wedge engine with dual 625 CFM Carter four barrels, a full max wedge factory header exhaust with side dumps, a 4-speed transmission and a 3.91 SureGrip rear end. The carburetors are topped off with the old football-shaped Mopar dual quad air cleaners that have been chromed and the hood sports the HEMI hood scoop added to accommodate the air cleaners.

The Mopar has an original AM-FM radio with the rear seat speaker. The Satellite features new traction bars, adjustable pinion snubber, frame connectors, original style reproduction battery, hidden electronic ignition, new old Stewart Warner gauges and console tachometer. The entire drive train has been rebuilt as well. The Plymouth has BF Goodrich tires front and back, 235x60R15 fronts and 275x60R15 rears, mounted on original Keystone Classic’s — 7 inch fronts and 8 inch rears.

There are enough NOS parts on this Plymouth now to break Fort Knox, but I also have an original 1965 dated 426 Street Wedge engine, original glove box door, original shifter knob, original 14 inch wheels with NEW 215x75R14 inch whitewall bias ply tires, original dual exhaust and the original spinner wheel covers to put this thing back to completely original condition if someone wants to do that in the future.

Thanks for looking at my Classic Mopar!
