Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
1965 Plymouth Belvedere Satellite Convertible Hurst Blu
An amazing survivor of the horsepower wars!
Performance 426 engines were retrofitted at the factory and gave anywhere
from 365 to 415 horsepower, depending on
configuration. Also available was the 426 hemi. This car is fitted with a
Hurst linkage, 4 speed manual. Everything about the car is great...a
testimony to Chrysler's history of performance cars!
1959 Plymouth Sport Fury - Test Drive & Review
Since I am into more things than just RC I thought this might be a great
way to expand the channel a little.
I have been wanting to do a review and drive of a long time member of the
family. This is the old man's 1959 Plymouth he has had.. well basically
since 1959. I hope you enjoy seeing this "old bomb" as he calls it.

1965 Plymouth Satellite Convertible 426
For 1965 the Plymouth Satellite became a separate model, available as a
coupe and convertible only. With a base 273 cid V8 as standard it was
available with the full range of Chrysler V8 engines all the way to the 426
cid rated at 365 horsepower and a rubber
burning 470 foot pounds of torque.. With a relatively light weight for a
convertible of 3,325 pounds for the convertible and 125 less for the
coupes, these were the Luxury Muscle cars of 1965. These cars were the
precursor of the Plymouth Road Runner that was to come. With only 1,860
convertibles built in 1965 these cars were rare when new, 52 years later
are though after by collectors, and who knows how many of the 426 cars
survived. This car is absolutely a head turner and I would love to have one
in my collection.
"Set the Way-Back machine to 1965 Mr. Peabody."
I had the honor of driving this particular car and to be honest the
restoration was a little too authentic. The engine settled to a lopeping
idle with just enough rumble from the Exhaust to let you know this car is special. The
acceleration was breath taking and I had to be careful to not light up the
tires at every stab of the accelerator. Today's cars are so well behaved
that the you can feel the twisting forces at work when you step on the
accelerator hard, you feel the car squat towards the left rear and you feel
the front right rise to the air. You know if it had enough traction those
front wheels would lift off the ground. When these cars were new I was
firmly entrenched in driving European cars that were completely the
opposite in the dynamics and handling, light, nimble, precise and slow in
comparison to the brutal power of the american V8 cars. The steering and
response of the cars of this period was leisurely and dead in feel. Disc
brakes were just becoming an option in some cars. The interstate hi-way
system was almost finished and america was legally cruising at 70 mph gas
was 22 cents a gallon. There is no question that this car is fast, there is
no question that this and other cars of the period need more to stop with
the tiny drum brakes it came equipped with.

The product of a high dollar, multi-year build, this incredible Mopar
pro-tourer wraps a 500 horsepower 3G Hemi and a
completely custom suspension in a custom leather interior and killer
Completed in early 2012, this super clean curve carver is the direct result
of what happens when a seasoned fabricator has an uncompromised vision,
major dedication and access to a six-figure bank account. See, the car's
creator already owned a killer Charger that was buff enough to pull down
sub 10-second passes on an NHRA-sanctioned drag strip, so he wanted to
build a second car that was a bit milder and quite different. Enter this
neon Plymouth, a project which quickly escalated from the restoration of a
fun cruiser into the creation of an outrageous driver's car.
Hoist this Plymouth's bright fiberglass hood and you'll find 6.1 liters of
naturally aspirated 3G Hemi bliss. Straight from the factory that popular
SRT8 powerplant produces an impressive 425 horsepower and 420 lb./ft.
of torque. And with the help of a custom tune by the folks at Bouchillon
Performance Engineering in Hanahan, South Carolina, its performance
transforms from wild to flat out wicked! Measuring in at roughly 372 cubic
inches, the big mill uses a revised block, forged internals, lighter
pistons and a cast aluminum intake to crank out a whopping 500 horsepower and 460 lb./ft.
of torque. And best of all, that's 500 horsepower that'll fire up
in any weather, last thousands of maintenance-free miles, and probably lay
waste to any old school muscle car that's brave enough to stage a
Behind the neo Hemi, a Hughes Performance A727 Torqueflite produces great
bite and hard launches. Out back, there's a fresh Moser Sure Grip rear end
that's equipped with moderate, pavement pounding gears. At the front of the
car, custom-mounted rack and pinion steering provides smooth turns and
quick reflexes. That rack is held off the ground by a first class double
A-arm suspension that's a product of Magnumforce upper control arms, two
inch drip spindles, fresh Aldan coil overs and modified Mancini lower
control arms. Holding the car's rear end off the ground is a Reilly
Motorsports triangulated four link set up that's equipped with new QA-1
coil over shocks. And at the corners of the chassis, custom Boze Alloy
wheels spin 235/55R18 front and 305/45R20 rear Yokohama Advan STs around
graphite gray spokes, satin-finished lips and yellow-trimmed center caps.
Open this B-Body's solid closing doors and take in its custom black
interior that, as an astute combination of serious hardware and modern
aesthetics, is the perfect place to spend jaunts like Hot Rod's famed Power
Tour. The first thing you'll notice is a pair of GS-1 touring buckets,
fitted with high quality RCI harnesses, that are so supportive they'll have
no problem living life 100 miles at a time. Between those seats, a custom
console anchors a B&M Pro Bandit shifter between two cup holders and a
remote controlled Sony CD player. At the front of that console, a clean
Just Dashes dash features snazzy white-faced gauges and a modern pushbutton
ignition switch. And in front of the driver, a three-spoke Momo steering
wheel spins a thick black rim around a shaved steering column.
Brutally fast and visually stunning, this awesome Plymouth perfectly
embodies the tried and true philosophy of pushing the envelope as far as
the arc will go. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more
1965 Plymouth Sport Fury
Yeah, so I have a fettish for stacked headlights be they Ford's/Mercuries
or Plymouths. This car is equipped with a 426 Wedge - built. It thumps
more in person than in the vid. Exhaust dumps just ahead of the rear wheels.
