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.

1957 Plymouth Belvedere - Oldtimerfriedhof Kaufdorf - Swiss Junkyard (2/2)
Today we picked up the 1957 Belvedere 4dr sedan I bought a few months ago.
Roger Linder was a great help and gently loaded the car onto the trailer.
Thanks a lot!
Heute ist es soweit! Wir sind in Kaufdorf und holen den 1957er Plymouth
Belvedere ab, den ich dort bei der Auktion im September 2009 gekauft habe.
Roger Linder lädt das Fahrzeug vorsichtig auf unseren Anhänger, ohne
seine Hilfe hätten wir verdammt alt ausgesehen. Vielen Dank, Roger!
Vielen Dank übrigens auch noch an die Idioten, die fast sämtliche
vorhandene Zierleisten, Schriftzüge und diverse Knöpfe gestohlen
haben...muss sowas eigentlich sein?

Dodge V8 (Small Block) Engine vid in car
Here is the Small block V8 engine in a friends car. It has a 4 barrel
carburator, Exhaust headers, and an
electric fan. The engine is painted Race Hemi Orange, but it was evening,
so the light level is low, so the paint looks darker, on a sunny day this
paint should look close to an orange peel in color :)
It is called a small block, but this particular engine type could be 273,
318, 340 or 360 cubic inches.
(4.5, 5.2, 5.6 or 5.9 Liters) Big block Dodge engine are physically larger
castings, and were built in 361, 383, 400, 413, 426 and 440 cubic inch
displacement sizes, with the spark distributor at the front, these engines
were phased out in 1978 :( The small block continued on in the 5.2 Magnum
and 5.9L Magnum sizes until replaced by the current 5.7 and 6.1 Hemi
engines (not to be mixed up with the old street Hemi of 426 cubic inches
(7Liters) built approx. from 1966 into 1971 )
