When you want one of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, it's time to check out this 1966 Plymouth Satellite. It was born with an ultra-desirable dual-quad Hemi 426 V8, and so you know it's true Mopar royalty. There's even a terrific amount of paperwork to back it all up, including the original window sticker! So on a coupe this important, you can really see they took the time to keep it looking sharp, vintage, and all-around striking.
These cars can look incredibly sophisticated in the right color, and the factory-correct Dark Blue Metallic gets it just right. It was updated later in life, so that the deep blue still gives off a nice gloss in the sunshine. These intermediate Mopars had a full-size look with a wide stance and confident lines in the cantilever roof. At the same time, they integrated some sleekness with the rounded curve built into the door line. It created one of the most unique and handsome designs on the streets - and it was only available for a few short years. While the color complements the design on this one, there's also much more that's grabbing your eye. The full-width grille, full-length trim, and shining chrome bumpers are terrific for the premium accenting.
The sea of blue continues inside to give this a well-coordinated look. And the overall condition does a great job of showing off this Plymouth's vintage style. The bucket seats have an intricate pattern that really grabs attention, and the door panels and rear seats carry this design, too. There's plenty of bright trim throughout the interior - especially on the retro-cool center console. We know you'll love all the great original touches on this one, including the working AM radio and optional tach on the center console. Plus, a performance car like this needs a three-spoke steering wheel.
You can instantly see they also invested heavily in keeping the engine bay looking quite factory fresh. That's because this one was one of the few Mopars born with the 426 Hemi V8 with dual four-barrel carburetors on top. That kind of history makes it instantly desirable, but what makes it a true star is that this block is believed to be original to the car. It has a date code in-line with the coupe build date, and there's a long history file on the ownership. So yes, this shows as a full pedigree dual-quad Hemi Mopar! There was even a proper engine rebuild in 2006, and it has been treated with greatest care ever since (the consignor only runs this on racing fuel.) The stout Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic transmission and 3.23 limited-slip rear end are believed to be part of this highly original package, too. This was even built with desirable options like power steering a power brakes with discs up front.
The sale comes with a significant documentation file, including the original windows sticker, dealer invoice, factory buildsheet, warranty card, owner's manual, title documentation, maintenance records, and build receipts. There's even Galen Govier documentation and correspondence on this special Hemi. This also come with plenty of this car's original components, inclusion the fuel pump, washer tank, and hub caps. You also get a second set of wheels with this car's correct-option blue streak tires. It's all part of a package that made to excite your muscle car heart and win admiration/awards from other performance car fans.
