1965 Plymouth HEMI Lightweight

The Dodge & Plymouth A-990 cars were the end result of a change in drag rules mandated by the NHRA and the continuing special high performance program at Chrysler to keep pace with both the rules and the competition..... Following the end of the 1964 season NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) banned the use of aluminum and/or fiberglass body components on both stock and super stock cars. The older aluminum & fiberglass-bodied cars would still be eligible to run in stock classes if they had met the minimum production numbers. The A-990 Mopars would meet these new rules head on and the interior was also lightened as much as possible. The initial run of A-990's came out of the modification center weighing 500 pounds less than the standard super stock car of 1964 and 250 pounds less than the NHRA requirement. Now the factory had to add some weight back so they added a steel gas tank shield, a re-enforced roll bar and standard steel bumpers and deck lids...and the cars weighed in right on the money! These cars were so fast that these A-990's were virtually unbeatable for several years to come and for the first two years...1965 and 1966...they were the ONLY cars in the class at all..... ET's in the high 10 second range were commonplace with these cars.

Plymouth GTX 440 LOUD SOUND RoadRunner V8
Plymouth GTX 440 / RoadRunner Sound - Hello and welcome to the Car Acceleration TV Channel 2014. In today's video, we want to show you a great american classic car, the Plymouth GTX 440 / RoadRunner. The V8 engine sound is really incredible. Watch this Plymouth video for cold start sound, drive scenes and listen the horn. End of 1970, the Belvedere was replaced by the Plymouth Satellite. Consequently, based on the GTX now the new model. However, this lasted only one year. Completely new was the coupé body, technically, everything remained the same. Available were still the 7.2-liter with two power ratings and the seven-liter Hemi V8. Due to sharp decline in sales of the GTX was taken as a stand-alone model in the fall of 1971 from the program, in the model years 1972 to 1974 there were but for the continuing Plymouth Road Runner GTX a package. My opinion is from this period is the most interesting of the Plymouth Cuda Barracuda model. Do you like this video?
