THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Updated for 1968, the Satellite lineup was expanded to a full line coupes and sedans as the introduction of the Road Runner that year had filled the role of lower trim performance within the catalog. The B-Bodies received new sheet sheet metal in the form of sleek, subtle curved coke bottle profiles. Produced in every conceived permutation of cubic inches and body style, there was a Plymouth for everyone in 1968.

Purchased out of the Carolinas back in 2016, this Satellite was a nearly complete project by the time the consigner got his hands on this American V8 Coupe. It is reported that the Plymouth began its life as a fairly standard lower trim model and has been restored into a clone of a special higher performance 383ci model of the time. Very much an enthusiast's car, this Plymouth lacks much in the way of creature comfort and interior appointments. Basic instrumentation within the binnacle, a blanked out radio tray and bench seats allow the driver to focus solely on the wonderful tactility provided by a 4-Barrell fed 383ci V8 hooked up to a Hurst thrown manual gearbox.
Completing within the past couple of years, the efforts put forward on this project have resulted in a wonderfully presented coupe today. Little is to be found in the way of imperfections both on its blue exterior and interior. Mechanically, the car has been vetted and sorted by Anderhart Speed, LLC of Ivy Land Pennsylvania. While in their shop, a number of small jobs were conducted, and the vehicle is now reported to be ready to use upon purchase. Receipts of this work totaling over $6,000 are available to those interested. Additionally, all 4 corners have received fresh modern tires wrapped around brand new Detroit Steel Wheel rims.

In a world of downsizing and electrification, the rumble of large displacement V8s shall not fade into the forgotten past, for this Plymouth Satellite and all 383 of its cubic inches ensures future generations will be able to indulge in the fury of rampaging horses and tire smoke.
