    I just found out about a 70 sport Satellite (RP23) originally 318 car. It's partially disassembled in a storage unit with a B/RB engine in it. Can't get in to see it in person. Storage has at least one rat Chevy motor and a ton of tools and crap like that. Not that I need another project, but I'm thinking it's worth a flyer at 5k. Can you say wing car? Any thoughts?
    I was able to find these pics.

    I agree. The auction house is not very helpful...

      I sure have seen a lot worse...not bad IMO. IF you buy the car & make a wing car out of it, I call dibs on the front fenders. I think I know of at least one 69 Coronet fender in my area I could buy and swap with you, maybe both sides.

      I would say definitely restore it for what a great car it already is: a Sport Satellite.

        I love my 70 Sport Satellite so much, I am using a V code Runner for a parts car to restore mine. B7 blue with blue/white interior, white vinyl top, white pin stripe. Was 318 non a/c, now 440-6, 4-speed, Dana 60, rally dash. There was a GTX in town that looked identical to my Satellite so I thought it would be easy enough to clone it into a GTX. Then over the years a person ages and grows up and appreciates the 70 Sport Satellite for what it is.

          70 Plymouths have a beautiful front profile. Sport Satellites arent common anyway. Looks like a nice solid project car.
          Restore it as is, drop a 383 in it. And you may only end up spending 30k on a helluva sweet ride

          Wing Car tributes can still be 6 figure projects....

          BTW, is that a skeleton under the steering wheel in picture one?
          Maybe we found Jimmy Hoffa

          No, that's the last guy restoring the car. It's what happens when you try to undo years of underdash wiring butchery.

            It's an A/C car, so you'd have some work to convert the firewall, plug some holes or just leave em I guess. Has the A/C-heater box and dash sliding controls. If you convert to big block and want to keep the air, all the A/C lines are different even if the orig lines are in a box somewhere.

            If the owner has the orig lines and A/C components/brackets, I'd be tempted to restore it back to orig. Pop a built 318 in there and have a nice cruzer with A/C. We did the same thing on my daughter's 318 70 Sport Satellite. Nice 70 Sport Satellites are a rarity.
