The Plymouth Satellite is an automobile introduced in 1965 as the top model in Plymouth's mid-size Belvedere line. The Satellite remained the top of the line model until the 1967 model year, where it became the mid-price model with the GTX taking its place as the top model. The Fury name was moved to Plymouth's mid-size models for 1975, at which time the Satellite name disappeared. The Satellite was built on Chrysler's mid-size "B" platform.
When a new, larger Plymouth Fury was introduced for 1965 on Chrysler's full-size C platform, the Plymouth Belvedere name was moved to Plymouth's "new" mid-size line for 1965, in what was really a continuation of Plymouth's full-size 1962-1964 models. The Belvedere Satellite was the top trim model in the series, above the Belvedere I and II. It was only available as a two-door hardtop or convertible. Offered with bucket seats and center console as standard, the Satellite was available exclusively with V8 engines. For 1965, the standard engine was the 273 c.i.d., and optional choices were the 318, and 361, 383 and 426 "Commando" engines. This 426 had the wedge combustion chamber design, and is not the 426 "Hemi" offered in 1966. The front end was simple: a single headlight on each side, and a grille divided into four thin rectangles laid horizontally. The concurrent Fury was given a "stacked" dual headlight design.
The 1965 Satellite 2-door hardtop had a production run of 23,341. In standard trim the 2-door hardtop weighed 3,220 lb (1,460 kg) and cost $2,612. The convertible saw a production figure of 1,860 weighing 3,325 lb (1,508 kg) and costing $2,827 in standard trim.
In 1966, along with a redesigning, the Satellite was available with the newly optional "Street Hemi" engine, which had two 4-barrel carburetors, and 10.25:1 compression. This engine was rated at 425 hp (317 kW) at 5,000 rpm and 490 lbft of torque at 4,000 rpm. The other V8 engine options for 1966 remained the standard 180 hp (130 kW) 273, plus the popular 318 at 230 hp (170 kW) and the 265 hp (198 kW) Commando 361 and Commando 383 at 325 hp (242 kW), down from the 330 hp (250 kW) it had on tap in 1965.

Mega Mopar - Huge Car Show Drag Racing Burnouts - Supercharged Action at Gateway MSP
This past weekend Jordan and I went to Mega Mopar at Gateway Motorsports
Park and it was awesome! They had a huge car show, a swap meet, nostaglia
drags, funny cars, a wheelstander, and more. We really had a great time! I
tried to pack as much action into the video as I could. There was a sea of
awesome Mopars....Daytonas, Challengers, Chargers, Darts, Super Bees...the
list goes on and on. It was a weekend filled with hemis, wedges, Superchargers, and dual carbs. If you were there,
and your car is not in this video, please don't dispair....I will have much
more coverage coming up in the days ahead. I hope you found it
interesting....thanks for watching!

1965 Dodge Coronet - Homebuilt Big Block Mopar
Here's a photo and video summary of my Dodge Coronet. See my other videos
for the engine specs, but any questions, just ask. This is pretty much
home-built except for the paint job! Looking forward to the next Mopar
project, whenever/whatever that might be, but still a little ways to go on
Shot with a Panasonic DMC-ZS3, and any pixelation in the video is due to
the way I converted the raw file from .mov to .wmv so I could work in
Windows Movie Maker. Could have been a little better...
