Technical specifications, photos and description:
Winner of 2014 European Mopar Nationals 'Best in Show'
officially now running for its 21st year and the biggest Mopar
Nationals outside North America.
Introduced in 1965 as the top-of-the-range model of Plymouth's
mid-size Belvedere line-up. the Satellite became available with
Chrysler's legendary 'Hemi' 426ci (7. 0-litre) V8 engine for 1966.
Adding around $1. 00 to the list price. this 'Street-Hemi' engine
was quoted as producing 425bhp at 5. 00rpm and 490lb/ft of torque
at 4. 00rpm. figures generally accepted as being conservative. The
quoted performance figures were 5. 3 seconds for the 0-60mph sprint
and 13. 8 seconds for the standing quarter-mile with a terminal
speed of 104mph. When specified. the Hemi was complemented by a
host of performance enhancing extras including heavy-duty
suspension and Police-grade 11" drum brakes. Only 848 Satellite
Hemis were manufactured in 1966. 534 of which were equipped with
the optional automatic three- or four-speed transmission. This is
an exceptionally rare car. even in America.
The Satellite Hemi Coupe offered here is finished in Citron Gold
(a light metallic green) with a matching interior and is presented
in near concours condition. having benefited recently from a
2. 00-hour restoration costing over £78. 00 (approximately
$129. 00). (It should be noted that the engine has not yet been run
in). In addition to the aforementioned engine and suspension. this
car's impressive specification includes power-assisted steering. br/>servo-assisted ventilated disc brakes and a '727' three-speed
automatic transmission. It has been built with a mix of new
old-stock parts and some reproduction ones - the n-o-s Delco
battery cost £500 ($830) on its own. Everything is correct right
down to the French-polished mahogany sports steering wheel. new B F
Goodrich Red Line radial tyres and original spinner hub caps. Not
surprisingly. the bodywork. paintwork. interior trim. engine and
transmission are all in excellent order. This Satellite Hemi has
been in the UK since 1975. with only two owners in the last 18
years. and is probably the best example this side of the Atlantic.
It is sold complete with a large history file that includes a
four-page letter from Galen Govier (the world renowned Mopar guru)
and the original factory build sheet and fender tag detailing all
the factory-fitted options. Registered 'JKE 428D' in the UK. the
car is licensed has an MoT test certificate valid until March. br/>2016. Rare and exciting muscle cars do not come much better than
this extraordinary 1960s icon. with its near space-age design and
all the power you will ever need. step into the future whilst still
relishing the past.
