The 1960s were a time when great muscle cars were built. With General Motors pumping out new models every year sporting iconic designs, the Plymouth Satellite definitely stood out from the rest. The Plymouth Satellite had a production run of from 1965 to 1974 and spanned 3 generations. During its time the car served as a top of the range variant of the Plymouth Belvedere and was available as either a two-door hardtop or convertible. During its production run the Plymouth satellite was revised for the 1966 year and had a major refresh which included the car now being equipped with a "Street Hemi" engine pushing out 425hp and 490lb-ft torque.
