1968 Plymouth Satellite
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
The Plymouth Satellite was introduced as an up-market variant of the Belvedere in 1965, a niche market, like the similar Sport Fury and VIP in the Fury line. Only available as a two-door hardtop and a convertible, the Satellite carried a 318-cid, 230-hp V-8 as base equipment, while optional engines included 361-cid and 383-cid V-8s, all the way up to a stonking 426-cid Hemi V-8, with 425 hp on hand. Four speed transmissions were offered, though few buyers ticked that box.
The Satellite was revised with a much sharper profile in 1966 and sales responded favorably. Chrysler introduced the 425 hp Street Hemi, with 817 went in to Satellite hardtops, (503 with four-speeds) and 27 into Satellite convertibles. The luxury Satellite was slightly face-lifted in 1967, with only two Street Hemis being installed in Satellite hardtops and one in a Satellite convertible.
SECOND GENERATION SATELLITES: A restyled and higher trimmed Sport Satellite model with a standard 318 V8 was introduced in 1968. A 4-door sedan and station wagon were offered for the first time.
The 1968 model year was also the introduction of the Plymouth Road Runner that shared the same body as the Satellite and Belvedere models.
The 1968 body continued through 1970, with a minor front and rear restyling for 1970, which was the last year for the Belvedere name. SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA
