1966 Plymouth Hemi Satellite Convertible - Real Car!
One of 27 Made...
This is a bucket seat, console automatic HEMI Satellite Convertible
I've tried to include all the details for this car here but if you want anything else, just contact me. It's is a
project car. I'm a private collector and have had it for years so it's been out of the Hemi crazed spotlight. The paint and bodywork is basically
complete and very straight. Anyone that
has worked on these old straight sided big cars knows how hard it is to get the lines right. The engine was rebuilt before I bought it and is complete except for
carburetors. I had a distributor but can't find it so assume it's not included. The underbody and chassis
have been worked on but not been pristinely restored like some are today it is very presentable as shown in the photos. There is no rust in the floor pans or trunk. All the seats have been recovered with original
materials. This car was exported to
Sweden years ago and imported back to the USA in the late 90’s but I have no history as to how it got there nor how long it was. It does have a speedometer
which is calibrated 0 to 200 KM/HR and I have the European plates that were on
it when I bought it. Note that I can't verify the mileage but the 34673 on the odometer is KM not Miles. It’s a project that
I would love to finish but I have better use for the shop space and money right
now plus more project cars behind this one. If you have any questions at all, call John at 214-769-6588, text or message me here. It's a real deal car and needs a good home. I apologize for the poor quality photos. Note that one of the pics here is of the Chrysler Manifest documentation which verified its lineage from the factory. It shows where it was originally sold to and so on, on the same photo is a breakdown for the data plate. Another photo shows the Data Plate itself, Vin Tag and the frame stamping number that connects the car together for authenticity. Like I said, if I missed any information, let me know.

This car is sold as is where is with no guarantys or warranties real, implied or otherwise. Although I will answer any questions posed, the buyer is responsible for their own interpretation of the condition of the car prior to bidding or purchase. I will make it available for buyer inspections at any reasonable time. Also note that upon purchase of this vehicle (successful final bid on EBAY), it will be yours and as such I am not responsible for any losses or damage from that time forward. I will assist in shipping in any manner practical. I will not prepay shipping nor will I arrange for shipping. The car is in a safe and secure place that is easily accessible by commercial truck so pickup by any carrier will be no problem. All the parts will be boxed or wrapped prior to pickup. Everything will not likely fit in the car proper so notify your shipper to insure they understand there will be loose parts. If special issues are required (storage beyond a week, international paperwork, special crating, what ever), it is not included unless agreed upon in writing and must be negotiated prior to auction end (EBAY messaging OK).
I'm very serious about the payment terms. If you can't arrange for the initial deposit within 24 hours final payment within 3 days, please save us both the time and trouble. I will accept a check but it needs to be verifiable in Fort Worth, TX within the allotted time so it should be drawn on one of the major banks I'm really an easy going guy but experience over the years has made me cautious therefore the statements and requirements herin. The seller reserves the right to end this auction at any time for any reason. The car is also for sale locally.

The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.

The grisly moniker was earned because all of the vehicles belonged to the president of a blood testing company who is facing prison time for alleged bribery, according to Hemmings. After all, they are muscle cars bought with actual blood money. The seven-vehicle collection includes some of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, and the original buyer clearly had an eye for rarity.
This cornucopia of V8 power includes a teal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang, an orange 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and perhaps most prized of all - a trio of 1969 Yenko Chevys with a Chevelle, Nova and Camaro all represented. From the included photos, all of them look to be in fantastic condition.

We're plenty used to seeing classic cars selling for millions of dollars. It's just that they're usually European: Ferraris, Bugattis, Mercedes and the like. There are some rare American exceptions, usually wearing the names Duesenberg or Shelby. But what we have here is the most expensive Chrysler product ever sold at auction.
The vehicle in question is a Plymouth Barracuda - specifically a 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible, chassis #BS27R1B315367 - that Mecum Auctions just sold after eight solid minutes of feverish bidding for a high bid of $3.5 million at its auction in Seattle, Washington. That figure positively eclipses the $2.2 million paid for a strikingly similar Hemi Cuda (chassis #BS27R1B269588) fetched nearly seven years ago in Scottsdale and another that was the first muscle car to break the million-dollar mark in 2002.
Before Chrysler had Street and Racing Technology, it had Performance Vehicle Operations. What the two entities have in common, before SRT became its own brand, of course, is that each was created to take Chrysler and Dodge (and Plymouth, before it was unceremoniously killed off) vehicles to the next level of style and performance.
We'll leave the question of whether or not the old Plymouth (and later Chrysler) Prowler was ultimately a stylish, performance-oriented car to you, but the boys and girls currently leading the SRT charge at the Pentastar headquarters are keen to accept the retro-rod into the fold.
According to the automaker, all of SRT's current high-performance models owe a debt of gratitude to the old Prowler, due mostly to that car's use of lightweight bits and pieces and innovative construction techniques. If nothing else, the fact that the Prowler's frame is "the largest machined automotive part in history" is pretty cool. Read all the details here.
