The Satellite still sports the original cable shift 727 TorqueFlite transmission, runs 3:91 gears and even has an AM/FM radio along with reverb.
This Plymouth has over 40 first place awards in local car shows, most of which were judged events, including the Dallas Autorama where it won the Popular Hot Rodding magazine award for Outstanding Streetable Performance Car. The Mopar is an inductee into the Order Of The Pentastar which is the highest level of competition at the Dallas Mopar Clubs Southwest Mopar Mininationals. The Mopar had also won the Top Twenty award at the old Waco Mininationals, competing against a 300 car field of all makes/models.
|Needless to say, this Plymouth Satellite turns many heads.|
