LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1966 Plymouth Satellite.
The Plymouth Belvedere Satellite was the top trim model in the series between 1965 and 1967. It was only available in two-door hardtop or convertible versions and had standard bucket seats, center console, and a V8 engine. In 1966, Plymouth introduced the 426 “Street Hemi” engine into the Satellite. The “Street Hemi” was capable of incredible performance both on the track and the road and was rated at 425HP. Many mandatory options were added to the Satellite when the 426 Hemi option was selected in order to handle the massive increase in power. Richard Petty set a lap speed record in 1966 when he took pole position for the Daytona 500 in a race prepped Hemi powered Satellite and would go on to win the race.
This 1966 Plymouth Satellite has the factory 426 Hemi motor and with the TorqueFlite automatic transmission, it is 1 of only 314 Hemi Hardtop Satellites produced in ‘66. It was purchased new from LP Steuart Inc. by Mr. John Anderson on June 21, 1966. It is finished in its factory color Dark Blue exterior on the factory original Medium Blue bucket interior. The previous caretaker took great pride in this car and well as all cars in collection, he wanted to have the best original factory examples that he could find. Other than a one exterior repaint and service items replaced this car remains largely original, complete with original paint in the trunk, jambs, underhood and underside. This Satellite has a list of factory options such as; Sure Grip Differential, 26” radiator core (found mostly in Hemi powered cars), power brakes, disc brakes, power steering, AM radio, factory wheel covers and Bluestreak Tires. This Plymouth Satellite is in remarkable original condition mechanically, as well as physically. This very rare and collectible Hemi comes complete with window sticker, broadcast sheet, owner’s manual with warranty plate in dealer plastic envelope, copy of old title, Galen Govier documents, service records and receipts. It is indeed very unusual to find and early Hemi with this much factory documentation, service history and receipts.
This “Street Hemi” Plymouth Satellite is a cruiser that provides a touch of elegance but also unmatched performance. Its outstanding original Hemi, complete with full documents as well as being 1 of only 314 makes this Satellite an extremely rare find indeed.
