As far back as I could trace this Plymouth has always been a race car. It has the radio and heater delete options.

The best et's are 10.70s (before adding the better Edelbrock heads and M1 intake).

The car is street legal except for the slicks. The previous owner used to drive it to work daily at his hotrod shop. I imagine that is how the bulk of the 7200 miles showing on the odometer got there!

From start to finish it took me about 9 months to get the Plymouth to where it is today. There are only a few minor things left to do on the car. However, a recent job related move and a new addition to the family has started me thinking and I put the Belvedere up for sale.... [Editor's note; as of July 2002 the '65 now has a happy new owner.]

Great web site and thanks to all of the '62 to '65 Mopar Mail List Clubhouse Members who helped out with advice and spare parts.
