    Hello everyone,
    I am 51 yrs young, my wife and I own a body shop in Ohio, have been a chevy guy all my life and have just bought my first mopar. A 1965 Plymouth Satellite BB 4sp car. I do not know much about these cars and am hoping I can lean on this group for guidance. Excited to get started on something new and see which way we go with it and how it ends up!! 20211212_155240.jpg 20211212_155249.jpg 20211212_155312.jpg 20211212_155327.jpg 20211212_155427.jpg

                  I was going to say Greetings from Upstate New York but I see you are in upstate NY. I've got a nice '65 383 sitting in a crate in Albany when you get to that point in the build.

                          Welcome James, from the other side of the border in Ontario. That looks like a pretty solid 1965 Belvedere project. Those and 1965 Coronet's were never sold in Canada, so they are an uncommon sight up here. A Chevy friend of mine was finishing up a Mopar project for resale, and said to me, " I really have to hand it to you Mopar guys! I could do two Chev's up for what it costs to do one Mopar.". My reply was, "Yeah, but once you're done, all you have is two Chev's.".

                            That is one of my favorite choices. The '65 Satellite 383 4spd down the block is what really got me hooked on Mopar's. Enjoy the product.
