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.

Из грязи в князи - Plymouth Road Runner 71
Из грязи в князи - Plymouth Road Runner 71
В 1971 году кузов стал иметь более округлые "флюзеляжи". Дизайн соответствовал действующими традициями Chrysler`s стиля.
Кабриолет больше не выпускается. Общая длина кузова была сокращена, а колесная была даже увеличена для лучшей управляемости и устойчивости в поворотах. Аэродинамика, за счет более плавных линий улучшилась, как и ее производная - скорость, но разгон пострадал, частично из-за меньшей компрессии двигателей.
О фильме: Барри знает, как создавать масл-кары (мускулистые машины). Но сколько они будут стоить? Он собирается выяснить. В каждом эпизоде, Барри с его командой механиков и семьей, имеют только четыре недели на работу по восстановлению классических американских авто, для последующей их продажи на самых известных автоаукционов северной Америки, а окупятся ли расходы и останется ли Барри в прибыли,смотрите сами!
