I am selling my 1973 Plymouth Satellite / Roadrunner Tribute.  I first purchased this car in Northern California where it had spent it's whole life with it's original owner.   It had 87953 original miles on it.  It was a Satellite and I believe it was a Sebring, but I am unsure of that, as it has been a few years.  When I got it, it was Rally Red with a 318ci with a 904 auto and a 8.25 rear end.  We could find no rust in the car anywhere.  The interior was in very poor shape.  The 318 leaked and burnt oil so I replaced it with a 360 that I had stroked and bored by The Performance Shop in Redding, CA.  They did all the machine work.  They put Edelbrock heads, cam and did a complete rebuild. I was told the horsepower is between 500-525.  I had a transmission shop in Redding rebuild a 727 with a new 2000 stall converter.  I also had a complete driveline built by Driveline Specialties. The Performance Shop also rebuilt a 8.75 sure grip rear end with 3.55 gears.  We removed the K member and completely rebuilt it. 

While the car had no interior, no K member, & no rear end (just an empty shell) we power washed all of the original undercoating out from underneath the car.  We re-undercoated the car when finished.  We sanded the car down until almost all of the bare metal was exposed, still finding no rust.   I had a friend that worked at Reed's Auto Body do all of the body work and got the car in primer and did a complete paint job. 

We sent the car over to Dan's Trim Shop in Redding, CA for the interior.  He did all of the interior from carpet to headliner including covering the dash pad.  The interior is beautiful!

We had brand new 17" American Racing wheels and Nitto tires put on the car.  We also had the suspension checked and aligned by Farwest Tire Factory. We also had new dual exhaust with x pipe and flow master mufflers installed .

Since the project has been completed, we have put less than 100 miles on it.  To me it seems a bit low geared, but other than that the car has plenty of power and drives well. 

When I started building the car, I wanted a driver that I could show if I wanted.  I would put this car in a show, and I wouldn't be surprised to win a show and shine.  It is a fun cruiser, people stop and stare.  This is a car I was nostalgic for because I had one when I was younger.  I spent about $24,000 on this project, needless to say, it doesn't "fit" me (or I don't fit in it) the way I did back then.

I believe that I am critical of the car because it is not perfect, but the average person would not even notice much of the imperfections. 

There is no warranty and buyer is responsible for shipping.

If you have any questions please give me a call between 7:00 a.m. &  9:00 p.m. Pacific Time. 360-540-7585  Al

 It is time for this car to go to a home where it will be driven more & enjoyed so Happy Bidding!

US Marshal's classic muscle car auction officially in the books

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 08:13:00 EST

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.

'71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible sells for $3.5M [w/video]

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 09:29:00 EST


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.

Barrett-Jackson 2014: 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird passes half a million dollars

Sat, 18 Jan 2014 17:01:00 EST

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.
