1970 Satellite 440 is Gone (But my '73 RR will now live!)

My beloved little sweetheart "Granny" (full nickname Grandmere Demers after Charlie Demers' beautiful lamented '70 440+6 Roadrunner) is gone and I am crushed. But she went to a good home, Mark of WI who also owns a B7 '70 GTX and he'll lavish love on her too. Granny baby, I will miss you FOREVER! Now to get started on the 12-18 month plan to get my original owner 1973 400 auto Roadrunner back on the road. That's the reason Granny had to go. For the sake of my Bird which we ordered new in October 1972. PS: like the mufflers? Most people do. They were on my '73 originally and I have an NOS pair of them, they're Thrush CVX's, discontinued. Like a cross between Flowmaster and Dynomax, ballsy, loud but not glasspack crispy 'annoying loud.' http://www.storm.ca/~moparman

Daredevil Driving Stunts in a 1936 Plymouth: "Trial by Torture" 1935 Chrysler Corporation
more at http://cars.quickfound.net/ Toughness of the 1936 Plymouth is demonstrated by showing how components, structures, and the entire vehicle are "torture tested." Includes several good shots of deliberately rolling cars, and daredevil driving by "Hell Drivers' such as Lucky Teter and Jimmy Lynch. Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plymouth_(automobile) Plymouth was a marque of automobiles based in the United States, produced by the Chrysler Corporation and its successor DaimlerChrysler. Production was discontinued on June 29, 2001 in the United States. The Plymouth automobile was introduced on July 7, 1928. It was Chrysler Corporation's first entry in the low-priced field, which at the time was already dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. Plymouths were actually priced slightly higher than their competition, but offered all standard features such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes that the competition did not provide. Plymouths were originally sold exclusively through Chrysler dealerships. The logo featured a rear view of the ship Mayflower which landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the Plymouth brand name came from Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer for its popularity among farmers... The origins of Plymouth can be traced back to the Maxwell automobile. When Walter P. Chrysler took over control of the troubled Maxwell-Chalmers car company in the early 1920s, he inherited the Maxwell as part of the package. After he used the company's facilities to help create and launch the Chrysler car in 1924, he decided to create a lower-priced companion car. So for 1926 the Maxwell was reworked and re-badged as the low-end Chrysler "52" model. In 1928, the "52" was once again redesigned to create the Chrysler-Plymouth Model Q. The "Chrysler" portion of the nameplate was dropped with the introduction of the Plymouth Model U in 1929. Great Depression, 1940s and 1950s While the original purpose of the Plymouth was to serve a lower-end marketing niche, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the marque helped significantly in ensuring the survival of the Chrysler Corporation in a decade when many other car companies failed. Beginning in 1930, Plymouths were sold by all three Chrysler divisions (Chrysler, DeSoto, and Dodge). Plymouth sales were a bright spot during this dismal automotive period, and by 1931 Plymouth rose to the number three spot among all cars. In 1931 with the Model PA, the company introduced floating power and boasted, "The economy of a four; the smoothness of a six." In 1933 Chrysler decided to catch up with Ford and Chevrolet with respect to engine cylinder count. The 190 cu in version of Chrysler's flathead-6 engine was equipped with a downdraft carburetor and installed in the new 1933 Plymouth PC, introduced on 17 November 1932. However, Chrysler had reduced the PC's wheelbase from 112 in (284.5 cm) to 107 in (271.8 cm), and the car sold poorly. By April 1933, the Dodge division's Model DP chassis, with a 112 in (284.5 cm) wheelbase, was put under the PC body with DP front fenders, hood, and radiator shell. The model designation was advanced to PD and the car was marketed as the "DeLuxe" 1933 Plymouth. This car sold very well and is the 1933 model most commonly found in collections. The PC became the 'Standard Six'. It had been the 'Plymouth Six' at introduction, and was sold through to the end of 1933, but in much lower numbers. It is consequently in the minority in collectors' hands today. In 1937, Plymouth (along with the other Chrysler makes) added safety features such as flat dash boards with recessed controls and the back of the front seat padded for the rear seat occupants. The PC was shipped overseas to Sweden, Denmark, and the UK, as well as Australia. In the UK it was sold as a 'Chrysler Kew', Kew Gardens being the location of the Chrysler factory outside London. The flathead 6 which started with the 1933 Model PC stayed in the Plymouth until the 1959 models. In 1939 Plymouth produced 417,528 vehicles, of which 5,967 were two-door convertible coupes with rumble seats. The 1939 convertible coupe was prominently featured at Chrysler's exhibit at the 1939 New York World's Fair, advertised as the first mass-production convertible with a power folding top. It featured a 201 cu in, 82 hp version of the flathead six engine. For much of its life, Plymouth was one of the top-selling American automobile brands; it together with Chevrolet and Ford were commonly referred to as the "low-priced three" marques in the American market...

Plymouth GTX 440 LOUD SOUND RoadRunner V8
Plymouth GTX 440 / RoadRunner Sound - Hello and welcome to the Car Acceleration TV Channel 2014. In today's video, we want to show you a great american classic car, the Plymouth GTX 440 / RoadRunner. The V8 engine sound is really incredible. Watch this Plymouth video for cold start sound, drive scenes and listen the horn. End of 1970, the Belvedere was replaced by the Plymouth Satellite. Consequently, based on the GTX now the new model. However, this lasted only one year. Completely new was the coupé body, technically, everything remained the same. Available were still the 7.2-liter with two power ratings and the seven-liter Hemi V8. Due to sharp decline in sales of the GTX was taken as a stand-alone model in the fall of 1971 from the program, in the model years 1972 to 1974 there were but for the continuing Plymouth Road Runner GTX a package. My opinion is from this period is the most interesting of the Plymouth Cuda Barracuda model. Do you like this video?

1970 Superbird & 1972 Cuda Racing On Interstate 75
This is my red, white and blue Superbird back when it was a stock Alpine White Superbird. A group of us were on our way from Detroit, Michigan to Columbus, Ohio for a Mopar show in September of 1985. We all had C.B. radios and I lined up against a buddy of mine in a 1972 Cuda. The footage was shot from another Superbird behind me. The "three count" was given over the C.B. radio.

1966 Oldsmobile Starfire moved from storage after 25 yrs #1
I built this engine 31 years ago, 425 Olds high-compression V8 425; I installed Toronado heads, milled .030 bringing the compression to 11:1; 292 degree Iskenderian camshaft at .050 lifter height; 800 cfm Holley carb, dual line, double pumper; mechanical secondaries; I permanently wired the twin stall speed torque converter at the 3000 rpm setting; recurved distributor; dual round thrush mufflers (no packing); with it's 2.9 rear end, it will run 140-150 mph top end; I had turned the engine a couple times of year by hand, to make sure it had not set up; but the building was getting in bad condition, it had sat on blocks for 25 years; it was great to hear the old girl fire up again, just craving the highway.

1972 Plymouth GTX / Roadrunner Vs. 1994 Impalla SS with 20's
This video was to prove that a 318 can be made to make power under low budget applications. Although the block was re-sleeved to except 340 pistons, the engine had a 780 Holley installed after this video and we gained approx 25-35% more HP but we were always messing with the carb, the edelbrock might seem like a small carb for 625cfm but it works well...This is just one of those engines that has response and does not hold back, amazes everyone in our group and people who attempt a take down of this mopar. This is no means the fastest car ever...but it holds its own and i am having fun.





Good Bye Granny I Love You!
My beloved 1970 Sport Satellite sedan "Granny." Born as a six cylinder car I transformed her (with help from Vic Milano and Stewart Logan) into a fire breathing 440 "sleeper" car. She was nicknamed "Grandmere Demers" as a tribute to Charles Demers' beautful '70 Six Pack Roadrunnner and she even spent two years as a Six Pack car herself. Bought her from Tom Connors in late 1994 with 133,000 miles showing, she leaves with 187,177. God bless you "Granny" I'll always love you and ALWAYS miss you! MAY YOU LIVE FOREVER! http://www.storm.ca/~moparman





Granny walkaround
Equally at home at a car show or rippin' up the gravel backroads looking for junkyards, that's my 1970 Sport Satellite nicknamed "Granny." I love my little Plymouth hot rod! (Turn up your speakers). http://www.storm.ca/~moparman
