1965 Plymouth Belvedere B-1 2 Door Post Sedan
$54,500, contact: 1-877-853-9037. Up for sale is a beautiful 1965 Plymouth Belvedere I two door sedan post car (not four door conversion) Bob Mosher of Monrovia California built A-990 Hemi Super Stock clone. This car was a ground up restoration for a local California car collector and is detailed meticulously in every way. The core vehicle was a Southern California rust-free body needing only minimal body work to get the body as straight and crisp as you see here. Some of the interior and exterior components on this vehicle were N.O.S during the time of restoration such as: Tail light lenses, tail light chrome housings, horn ring insert and the rare heater delete plate. The WW1 off white paint on this beauty is of high quality, as is the interior which is restored in the correct Race Hemi "tan" color, with the addition of a rear seat which has been upholstered to match the correct A-990 (Bronstrom/A-100 van & Truck) bucket seats. The engine is a 526 cu-in Stage 5 Hemi conversion engine, using a mid 90's Mopar Performance Mega wedge block with cross bolted mains and Siamese bore. The rotating assembly consists of a Calies billet steel stroker crank, Crower H-beam connecting rods (with 2.20 rod bearings), and Arias forged pistons with 10.8:1 compression that is very pump gas friendly. The cylinder heads are Stage 5 Engineering's Hemi-to-Wedge block heads which were ported by cylinder head porting guru Greg Hanson formally of Stage 5. The valve covers are casted from magnesium and are a Stage 5 limited production item, that have the name "Stage V" milled into them. Engine also has Stage 5's roller rocker arms, chromed rocker shafts, billet aluminum rocker stands and SmithBrother's pushrods. The intake manifold is a factory Race Hemi magnesium cross ram that still has "A-990" vaguely stamped into the intake itself near the coil mounting bosses. Both Holley carbs are also factory piece's (not reproductions) and so is the Prestolite mechanical tach drive distributor that has been converted to magnetic pick up with a hidden MSD 6-AL ignition box under the dash. Transmission is a correct 65' only cable operated, slip yoke drive shaft 727 Torque Flite which has been upgraded with 4-pinion planetaries, bolt in sprag, and a turbo-Action manual shift valve body with no "PARK" components inside the trans (just like the original cars). The transmission is controlled through the stock column shifter which has been modified for the correct shifter pattern and 1-2 and 2-3 up-shifts. The rear suspension has been outfitted with Mopar Performance Super-Stock leaf springs, "489" case, 4.10:1 ratio SureGrip diff, and factory 10-inch rear drums. Frame rails have been tied together with non-intrusive 2"X2"X.090"-wall box steel welded in frame connectors. Up front the suspension was rebuilt using all powder coated, and cadmium plated components,10-inch front drum brakes, Mopar Performance Street Hemi "improved handling" large diameter torsion bars (to achieve the proper super-stock stance), polyurethane bushings, and all ball joints and tie rod end were also from Performance Suspension Technologies. The wheels are period correct "American" five spoke "Torque-Thrust's" which are magnesium as well and measure 15"X4", rear wheels are correct large center early Chrysler 15-inch, widened to 15"X8". This car has not been mini-tubbed, and the leaf springs are also in the stock location. Trunk compartment is also very detailed; with correctly mounted A-864/A-990 large core battery, trunk mat and Zoletone splatter paint. This car is currently registered, and has always been well maintained and is an absolute blast to drive. Between the docile looks of the car, and the sound of the 3-inch Exhaust running through Hooker Aero-Chamber Muffler's with turn-downs you will sure turn heads anytime this car is seen. With the engine producing over 700 horsepower, and 700 FT-LBS of torque and a quarter mile performance of 10.60 @ 130-mph this would be a great addition for any car collector at a fraction of the price to build one from scratch.
