I recently purchased a 1965 Plymouth Satellite Belvedere out of Lexington, KY known as the "G Town Gernade". Powered by a 90's iron block Hemi topped with a cross ram. It has an A-833 four speed and a Sure Grip 3:73 geared Dana 60. The Plymouth is an old drag car that the previous owner was converting to a street/strip car. I am now the proud/challenged owner with finishing that task. I have already found tons of useful information on your forum and look forward to learning more about how B Bodies are built and tuned by all of you. I've worked on Pontiacs for most of my life but always dreamed of owning and working on a Hemi car. My dream is now upon me. Thanks for having me and thanks in advance for all the guidance you will provide!

Welcome from CT. Nice looking car. Is there a big cam in it or was it detuned? My stalled project.

I have a picture of a dyno sheet for the motor when it was configured with a single four. On the dyno the motor achieved 558 HP at 5700 and 533 Ft/Lbs at 5400. Those are "not" rear wheel numbers, they are crank. This Hemi may give a little more with the right fuel and the cross ram dual fours at those RPMs. So, I guess it has some "bump" but nothing too radical. It has shown good street manners, so far.

BTW, I meant to mention you have a mighty fine project going in your garage!
 
Welcome to the site. Don’t have a Hemi, but I have a 65. Looks like a great project.
 
Welcome from Alabama, what a great project.
