1966 Plymouth SatelliteThis is a great looking Satellite that we unfortunately have to sell because we are losing our place for storage. We have had a blast with at local shows over the last year, It gets lots of attention particularly because of its condition and color, its perfect on the beautiful 1966 - 1967 Satellite / Belvedere scuplted lines. It starts, drives and runs great. The cam is mild enough to definitely enhance performance but still run and idle smoothly. The paint is overall very nice other than where mentioned below. It has some small bubbles down low that you need to look for to notice. There is a dull spot on the trunk for some that Im working on. Otherwise the paint is glossy and was done to a nice level.
I have a file full of receipts for various repairs, additions, chroming etc that I have done as well as previous owners. The car has been well taken care of for many years. I just put new tires on it and I have the older Redlines that came off of it when I bought it. They are showing dry rot cracking and although they hold air fine I personally wouldnt drive on them. The rear is a Mopar Sure Grip 8 3/4 with 3.91 gears. With the current tire it runs about 2870 rpm at 55 mph. The tires are brand new Hankook 215/70/14 and have dramatically improved the handling and ride from those Redlines.
The body seams are all very nice and I haven't noticed anything to indicate panel replacement, in my opinion the body panels are all original. The trunk floor seems solid but shows some typical surface rust. There is an area where the flat trunk floor meets the differentail hump where it looks like there was some patching at some point. The fender lines all look good, the doors close great and the lines down the sides of the car are straight as an arrow.
The hard to find grille and headlight surrounds are very nice. Someone put silicone on the passengers vent window for some reason, maybe before the weatherstrip was being reproduced....? It wont open right now but I will be tackling that soon. Drivers side vent window chrome frame has some corrosion but car comes with a good replacement.
The wheels are 14 x 6 Magnum 500s from Year One and are in good shape.
Everything on the car works except what I mentioned. The backup light problem is a switch adjustment, they come on by pushing the shifter just right when in reverse. I believe the temp gauge itself is fine and just needs the correct sender.
Here are some of the highlights as well as things the previous owner and I have done over the last several years.
- Chrome Magnum 500 wheels
- Mopar Purple Shaft - Duration 268/272 Lift .450/.455
- Front end rebuilt with PST components
- New front sway bar installed
- New hoses and water pump 2012
- Hemi style springs and torsion bars
- New Ujoints
- New rear end seals and bearings
- New rear brakes
- New windshield
- New Headliner
- Tail Light Buckets Rechromed
- New Door Handles
- New Interior Door Panels
- New Carpet
- Front Bumper Rechromed
Things I know that need attention:
- Fuel Gauge isnt accurate
- Temp gauge not working
- Back up lights working intermittently
- Under seat stereo working but could be better
- Dash lights rheostat worn
- Drivers seat track not going back all the way.
Im picking away at these items, the longer I have it the more will get
Added: I have been told the paint color is the 1967 version of the ZZ1 Citron Gold. Apparently sometime in 1966 - 1967 there was some adjustment to the formula even though the ZZ1 designation remained unchanged. This makes sense since some "Citron Gold" cars seem more green than gold. I dont see any green on this car, and actually it looks a tiny bit more gold in person than it does in these evening pictures. Any further details about this are welcome. thanks
