1965 Plymouth Belvedere II Convertible

February 2015 Mopar of the Month

Allen writes: I have always had a passion for early B-body Mopars and I previously owned one. A car that always eluded me was a convertible B-body. I loved the styling and the fact you could get (in some years) a Max Wedge engine in these Mopars. This to me was the height of Chrysler styling and ingenuity. So when I sold my Charger I set out to find an early B-body. I looked at a few and then stumbled across this Plymouth! The Mopar has everything I wanted: convertible, medium blue paint, blue interior, buckets— and it was a V8 car.

I have upgraded the original 273 to a 360 disguised as a 273 Commando! You could not get a Commando in a B body but my idea was sort of a ”what if•.

The Plymouth has been completely restored top to bottom and now has disk brakes, full TTi exhaust, NOS Appliance wheels and Coker Tire.

Convertibles are some of the rarer Mopars and I am proud to finally have one! I love my ’65!

Thanks Allen!

What’s not to love? Just try not to have too much fun with the Plymouth. On second thought, ignore that suggestion!  smile!
