This 1965 Plymouth Satellite has the right combination of originality, upgrades, and attitude that makes mid-60s Mopars so special. From the handsome styling, to the unique interior, to the big 413 V8, this neat hardtop is a seldom-seen Dodge that delivers performance and big car comfort in one sleek package.
The Dark Blue seen here is a professional respray of the factory-correct color. So you get the benefit of looking right for the era, but now with a standout shine. Its luster is perfect for highlighting this Plymouth crisp lines. Plus, there's added attraction that comes from the well-defined panels. The doors open and close with authority, and everything lines up rather well. Just as crucial to highlighting this Mopar is the brightwork, which is all present and quite nice. It helps feature the extra-wide front end, angular hardtop, and shows off the grille that was exclusive to this first-year Satellite. This has such a period-correct look that they even updated the wheel package with vintage Keystone Klassic units, and the redline tires are Mickey Thompsons! So the overall impression is a car where they made some nice investments, and it's all about keeping it an old-school speed machine.
Inside the sea of blue continues. This is a well-coordinated look on the dash, door panels, headliner, carpeting, and the artful center console. The seats look particularly nice with the two-tone blue with the intricate inserts that even include the Plymouth logo. Even the little details are nice, like the working cabin lights, matching seat belts, AM radio on display, and correct trunk mat. The steering wheel fits into the color theme, and it give you a clean view to the clean factory gauge package. It's the kind of overall presentation where you can tell they made a real investment here just so you could roll down all the windows on this hardtop and show off the interior with pride.
This was at the dawn of the muscle car era, and this one celebrates it correctly. It's an era-correct 413 cubic-inch big block V8. We have a rebuild receipt from 2007, and the presentation today shows that they wanted to invest in correctness, right down to the Mopar turquoise on the block and intake. You'll also spot worthwhile upgrades, like the Champion aluminum radiator that helps keep this mighty motor running cool. The big V8 fires up readily as it inhales deeply with the four-barrel carburetor, and the dual exhaust gives you an awesome Mopar rumble. The three-speed automatic transmission has a stout construction to handle the power, and at the same time it makes cruising easier, too.
The sale comes with an original sales brochure for this first-ever Satellite. So when you combine the vintage looks and big power with an affordable price, you know this is a great deal that won't stick around here for long. Call today!!!
