1965 Plymouth Other A990
The 1965 Plymouth Belvedere A990 represents MoPar Racing History at its all-time best. A factory-built street-legal lightweight whose sole purpose was to dominate NHRA Super Stock Drag Racing it could be ordered from any Plymouth dealer that was lucky enough to have an allocation. This sedan number 44 of 101 Race Hemi Belvederes assembled for the 1965 model year was 1 of 4 A990s delivered through St. John's Chrysler-Plymouth in St. Augustine Florida. Recently the car was subjected to a detailed... rotisserie restoration that saw its battered unibody fully replaced. Naturally that foundation was properly dressed in acid-dipped doors an acid-dipped hood acid-dipped fenders and an acid-dipped scoop. Details are on-point with items like lightweight bumper brackets and lightweight Corning side glass complementing era-correct Ruby Red 2-stage. And although street legal this R051 Plymouth is built to correct factory Super Stock criteria meaning it can be run in sanctioned class events as desired. Professionally rebuilt by HBR Competition Engines of Las Vegas Nevada this A990's correct 426 cubic inch Race Hemi produces a dyno-proven 609 horsepower on 91-octane pump gas. HBR worked their magic bottom-side as well rebuilding the car's era-correct 4-speed: a 1965-exclusive unit that becomes rarer by the year. That stalwart gearbox spins a factory-correct 8.75-inch differential which twists a Sure Grip posi around 31-spline axles and big 4.56 gears. That industrial strength driveline rolls on a fully rebuilt Super Stock suspension. And power meets the pavement through vintage American Racing Torq Thrust Ds which spin 7.10-15 Firestone Deluxe Champions in front of 8.20-15 Firestone Dragster street slicks.
