133063 / 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/d6ytvc2 RK Motors Charlotte presents this as THE FINEST restored Hemi '67 GTX on the planet. It was a 1st place winner in the invitation only Classic American Performance class at the 2009 Glenmoor Gathering of Significant Cars and was a nearly impossible to find original paint survivor Hemi car with its original fender tag and broadcast sheet. Tim Wilhelm and our restoration crew first documented the car before carefully taking the car apart, labeling and bagging every nut, bolt and screw. After chemically stripping the entire car, Tim and company took the gracefully aged body to task. Before, during and after photos reveal the extremely minimal work needed to patch the bottoms of the quarters and one rocker - NO other sheet metal was cut out, including the perfect trunk floor. After weeks of sanding, primer went down and slowly, as the panels received more and more attention, the body was ready to paint. DuPont Chromapremier paint was chosen, and the carefully matched WW1 white was laid down. Layers of clearcoat were added and wet sanded and buffed to its current condition. Every piece of exterior trim is original with the exception of the antenna and base, the windows, rocker and wheel lip moldings, lock set, marker light lenses, fender turn signals, and the taillights and bezels. We replaced the 1977 aftermarket wheels with 1967-only wheels which are fully restored and carry a spring date code. The '67-specific hubcaps are outstanding originals which were fully restored. We sent the motor to noted Hemi expert Larry Shepard for a full-on, no-expense-spared concours restoration. Not far into the engine's disassembly, Larry gave us a call and told us not only was our Hemi a clean one, it was a factory Super Stock piece! The fender tag shows this car was scheduled for build on June 28, 1967, making it most likely the very last '67 Hemi X built. Shepard's went through the engine leaving no part untouched and creating one of the finest detailed Hemis on the planet. Then we restored the engine compartment using original and correct pieces all the way down to the screws that secure the fender tag... Literally days were spent researching the correct finishes on parts through examination of original parts, other GTX's and phone calls to experts such as Frank Badalson and Dave Wise. The sheet metal underneath was treated to the same care as the top, and sports a fresh coat of white paint. While this was originally an undercoated car we elected to paint the car white everywhere. It would take very little effort to apply the coating if you wish. The chassis and suspension under the car was carefully researched, restored and re-assembled with every piece being exact to factory appearance and specifications. After we disassembled the interior, we sent all of the chrome trim and pieces for a show quality restoration. Then the gauge cluster went to Auto Instruments, a sample of the original headliner went to SMS Auto Fabrics and the seat belts went to SSnake Oyl Products. New Legendary upholstery and door panels were ordered along with new window cranks and armrest bases from Van's Auto and a new center console, top plates and shift knob from BE/A. Auto Custom Carpet supplied both the rug and the logo floor mats and Mega Parts provided various small parts including the firewall insulation, the glove box liner and the sill plates. The dashboard and steering column were completely torn down, media blasted, cleaned and sent over to the body shop for paint along with the kick panels, center console, rear seat crown, dash pad, speaker grille, steering wheel center cap and steering column trim. The original armrest pads, door jamb windlace, seat backs and side panels were refinished in the proper P6K code copper dye. Finally, we installed the freshly restored wood grain wheel from Gary's Steering Wheels along with an original center cap from Mitchell Motor Parts. This car is here to show we can build no-excuses, no B.S. show car, which few in the world can rival. Incredibly documented, long term ownership, numbers matching, original sheet metal, award-winning and near flawless in every way.
Revised 57 Tulsa buried 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Boyd Coddington
Tulsa Story :This is a video pictorial of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere that was buried in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 15, 1957 as a time capsule. It was uncovered 50 years later on June 15, 2007. I was hoping to see a pristine version of "Miss Belvedere", but as it turned out, the vault leaked and filled with water, causing much damage to the automobile. As a car enthusiast, I watched the story develop over the past few years. I waited and watched it live online as she was extracted from the ground. When I saw the rust-colored dirt and muck on her, I had a bad feeling about her condition. I wish the person who won this car (by guessing the closest to the town's actual 2007 population back in 1957) could have it restored, but that would be a massive undertaking. On the other hand, she should get a chance to dance again! I hope you enjoy the video, along with some before, during, and after photos. update the winner of this car was Raymond Humbertson died in 1979 he was Marine and a Korean War veteran he has 2 sisters who may inherit he car Thanks, Chris Miss Belvedere Moves On By Old Cars Weekly After spending nearly 50 years quietly rusting beneath the Tulsa County Courthouse lawn, the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere affectionately known as "Miss Belvedere," is on the road once again. Don't get too excited, when she rolled out of Tulsa earlier today, it wasn't under her own power—she was whisked out of town in the back of a truck. After months of legal wrangling to establish ownership of what is clearly the most famous "finned" Mopar in the world (yes, even more famous than Stephen King's "infamous" Christine), Miss Belvedere has begun her journey to New Jersey — and possibly a rust-free future. Levada Humbertson Carney and Catherine Humbertson Johnson, elderly sisters from Maryland, will officially take possession of the Belvedere as beneficiaries of their brother Raymond Humbertson who won the car as part of a contest held back in 1957. Buried with the car was a time capsule containing people's guesses as to what the population of Tulsa would be in 2007. Included among the hundreds of guesses, was one made by Raymond Humbertson of Cumberland, Md., who died in 1979. His guess was only 2,286 off the actual census numbers, closer than any other entry. Assisting the cars elderly owners will be Levada Carney's son Robert Carney and Dwight Foster, President of the UltraOne Corporation. As you will recall, as part of this ongoing saga, New Jersey-based UltraOne, manufacturer of a line of rust removal products, will now begin the pain-staking process of de-rusting and preserving what remains of the rusty relic. According to Robert Carney, the car, which suffers from extensive damage after being submerged in conditions described as a "watery grave" for an unknown number of years, may eventually be able to take to the road under her own power. Once Miss Belvedere arrives in New Jersey she will undergo a lengthy cleansing and rust removal process that her new owners and the folks at UltraOne hope will stabilize the car before sealing it with a clear-coat designed to halt the rusting process. "We will not be restoring the car but preserving her for the future," Mr. Foster told the Tulsa World. "We have to stop the rust, because if nothing is done, this car will be dust in two years." According to the UltraOne Web site, future plans for Miss Belvedere could include a second Tulsa unveiling and a tour around the country for special events. Following the tour, the car's future remains unclear. However, it has speculated that the car could find her way to the Barrett-Jackson auction block in Scottsdale in the coming years. we will miss you the legend Boyd Coddington,
