1972 Basin Street Blue Plymouth Satellite Sebring Plus Big Block Survivor!
is a very unique Plymouth. It has a certain kind of vibe (feel–if you
will allow me to say so). There are a few things that set this Satellite
apart from the rest of the cars out there. For starters, it was built
with the best of two worlds in mind: A Big Block and Fuel Mileage. These
two known automotive terms usually do not go together, although they
certainly do in this case. This particular Sebring Plus was designed to
cruise–and to do so with style. It was originally purchased at a
Nebraska dealership by a couple from Cheyenne, Wyoming. I was told
that when they purchased this Satellite; they wanted a car that they
could go traveling in (hearsay). Whether or not they meant to order or
buy the Satellite this way, this couple purchased and owned the ultimate
touring car. As I mentioned before, there is a vibe to this vehicle.
This car fits the icy snow country of Wyoming with its awesome Richard Petty
Blue paint (Basin Street Blue), beautiful white vinyl top and silver two
tone paint. It also has a "gone-sailing" kind of vibe to it. The best
feeling of all is when you sit inside that factory original B5 blue
interior, and get that time warp (time capsule) sense of being back in
the early 1970's when cars were CARS..
This car is a true forty
thousand (40,600) mile Survivor in every sense of the word–dents and all. Inside
and out, top to bottom, you wont believe how clean this Mopar is, and
every number is correct and they all match. I must stress that this
Sebring Plus has never been repainted nor has it ever had any type of
panel painting done. The vinyl top is original to the car. It has been
very well taken care of by it’s previous owners. The Basin Street blue
paint is best described by the word "Luster," and lots of it. It is
absolutely amazing just how well the factory original paint still shines.
With that being said, I must mention the two dents which are still
present on the body, and one long scratch (ten or so inches–see
pictures). The interior is just as impressive and it really grabs your
vision when you stick your head in the window. It too has two blemishes,
three cracks in the dash and one of the sun visors was not sewn
properly from the factory (easy fix). The drivers side front seat insert
where the ribbed portion of the seat is has been replaced with NOS
material dated 1971 by Chrysler. P.S. The trunk mat is also amazing.
"The Plus Package"
has basically the deluxe GTX interior and two tone exterior trim,
without the 440 drivetrain. Some of the upgrades from a base Satellite
are: Rallye gauges, bucket seats, rear speaker with fader knob, two tone
paint and side body trim (there are two different body trims on the
car), a clock courtesy key switch light and door buzzer,
map/glovebox/trunk lights, big block 400, power disc brakes. There are a
few more options on this car, but the best and most important is the
"Petty Blue Paint" I cannot explain just how much it sets this car apart
from the rest.
DETAILS AND PARTICULARS
will–and have listed–some of the options on this vehicle, but I am not
going to decode the entire fender tag or any of the build sheet, and
when I say build sheet I mean sheets, it has two of them that I know
of–both of which are still in there factory installed places (Passenger
seat and rear seat). Along with the build sheets there is a loaded
fender tag. I also have the original factory window sticker, dealers
sales receipt, temporary driving tag (dated 1972) and Plymouth Satellite
sales brochure. All kept and preserved by the original owners and so
on. I have added a 1972 original copy Plymouth Satellite service manual,
and the Magnum 500 wheels. Every number matches on this vehicle: The
dash vin tag, door vin tag, radiator support stamping, the engine block,
transmission and the title. This car has an awesome powertrain and it
starts and runs great.

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.
The Plymouth Superbird is one of those classic American cars from the muscle car era that has captured the imagination of all sorts of automotive enthusiasts long after its presence on roads and race tracks wore away. It's easy to see why. Where else but in the Swingin' Sixties and Seventies would a car leave the factory with an aerodynamics package that included a pointy beak and a rear spoiler that sat several feet above the rear deck?

The example you see above, which was born in 1970, is one of the finest Superbirds we've ever seen. Combine its complete restoration with its original 426 Hemi engine, and it's no surprise that it managed to bring in a cool half million dollars (plus 10 percent in fees) at Barrett-Jackson. See it yourself in our high-res image gallery above, and scroll down below for the official auction description.
If you want to follow along with the coverage, check out the Hagerty Fantasy Bid online game here.
The US Marshal's so-called Blood Muscle Auction was completed earlier this month, with the prestigious nine-car field (two cars were added following Autoblog's initial story, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 and a rare, mid-restoration 1971 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda) finding new and hopefully law-abiding owners.
While we'd normally recap the stars of the show, in this particular auction, every car's sale was newsworthy. The full list of sale prices doesn't seem to be published, but according to The New York Times, the auction brought in a total of $2.5 million, or an average of about $277,000 per car.
The king of the contest seems to be a 1970 Plymouth Superbird (above, right), complete with a 426-cubic-inch Hemi V8, which brought home $575,000. The trio of Yenko Chevys, meanwhile, all easily cleared the six-figure mark, with the Yenko Camaro (above, far right) clearing $315,000, the Chevelle crossing the block for $237,500 and the supremely rare - one of just 37 - Yenko Nova (shown above, left) selling for an even $400,000.
