Plymouth Satellite Mopar chrysler V8 Engine

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.

For more information on this vehicle visit 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 custom-mixed paint. 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 challenge! 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.
