    Dodge Plymouth same thing. Not any on what they fit, bolt hole measurements would help. They vary from 62 to 66 and maybe later .

      We have a 65 Dodge Polara here, I could measure for you. I'm not sure on 66-67 Ply or Dodge
      what there spring bracket is.. but I'm pretty sure that 68-70 Plymouth is different than Dodge, hence the difference in length of wheelbases. The brackets in the pic, look like Plymouth to me.. but that is my own personal opinion. Dodge33

              Shows that the Satellite is a different part number in the book (above).
              R = Satellite, W = Coronet/Charger

              Here's a 69 DODGE B Body spring perch.
              Look at the difference compared to Plymouth perches in first post.
              Difference is because of longer wheelbase of Dodge versus Plymouth.

              Yup....that's how dodge got their 1" longer wheelbase than Plymouth.....by making the spring perch 1" longer. If you start doing research on all the floor pans, frames and trunk pan measurements you will find they are common numbers for dodge and Plymouth within a year. Actually they interchange across the 66-70 year ranges with minor exceptions such as tank strap holes in the 66-67 rear frame rails.

                Trunk pans are different in 66-67's as they have a spare tire well....68-70 do not.

                    Cranky...you are correct....the spare tire well was a significant difference in 66-67. However I put a 69 charger pan in my 67 to get the exhaust out the back with a mini-tub, and it fit like a glove. The 66-67 had the gas tank strap from side to side so those years frame rails have the provisions for the strap and j-bolt.

                    OP - I have a 67 belvedere and the spring hangers measure 2 3/16" from the flange face to the bolt hole centerline

                    Fran - I read somewhere....I think "Collectible Automobile" that dodge had the 1" longer wheelbase because they were the "premiere line" vs the Plymouth being the economy line. Pretty much a marketing ploy to make you think it was worth more paying up for a dodge over a Plymouth. The wheel openings weren't in different locations as the 66-70 cars all used the same inner wheelhouses and all the floor pans and pans over the axle hump were the same part numbers...dodge or Plymouth.

                      Yup, I remember reading about you doing that. The trunk pan in my 66 is in good shape but I wanted that well out of the way so I cut it out leaving enough metal on it so that someone else could weld it into their car that had a rusted out well. Years ago I ran into a guy that was asking for a spare tire hold down and I had one. When he got here, he asked me where it went. Upon opening his trunk, I asked him why didn't he put the tire in the well. He goes "what well" lol. The tire that was already in the well looked original and new.
