1965 Plymouth Satellite
Classic Car Overview
Chrysler marketers werent that talented in the paint naming department, but the CC1 "Plymouth Light Blue" paint on this car is indeed its original color. Its bright, clean, and perfect for a car with serious blasting powder under the hood. The sleek lines of the 65 Satellite mean that you really need to nail the bodywork, and with straight panels and crisp details. You already know that we love the cantilevered hardtops that Chrysler was turning out during this period, which gives the car an industrial strength look, thats both attractive and a little intimidating.
The two-toned blue vinyl interior flows well with the exterior theme. Its clean and uncluttered, but the patterns on the seats make it look upscale and the dashboards on these cars have always been somewhat remarkable in their design. All gauges are working properly. A set of auxiliary gauges have been installed under the dash in the usual location. The factory AM radio is not currently working, but the engine sounds so good you wont even miss your favorite station.
The big 440 cubic inch V8 is a perfect fit in the Satellites engine bay and its so clean and tidy that you can see where all the money was spent. Mopar Performance dress-up parts work well with the aluminum max wedge flat top crossram intake manifold and Hemi Orange paint on the block, so it looks fast before you even turn the key. The 440 block is punched to 30 over. Dart 440 aluminum heads, 1.6 roller rocker, and crank forged steel chambered journals, balanced. The intake gasket and heads were ported so they all flow the same. Exhausted ported the heads, gasket, and manifold. Additional upgrades are a Hemi 80 gallon per hour fuel pump, light weight hi-amp starter, roller cam, MSD electronic ignition, aluminum radiator, power steering, power brakes and a new transmission by AZ Precision transmission. Block number 2536430-9, intake 2402728-1, Edelbrock carbs 1407 9275 and 1407 2416, exhaust manifold 2402334-1 and left-hand driver exhaust manifold 2402338-1. SSBC front disc brake calipers, Wilwood disc on rear with a Currie rear end.
