'65 Plymouth Belvedere by finhead4ever '65 Plymouth Belvedere by finhead4ever
Everywhere I go, Plymouths appear! This super-clean 1965 Belvedere showed up at the store, just in time to have it's picture taken.

I love this car!  My friend, Jeff, just bought a 1965 Belvedere powered by a 426 Hemi to race nostalgia stock.  We went over to his place to see it the other night and he started it up.  It was on the trailer and every time he revved the engine, the whole car and trailer would contort to the left, as if it were going to take off to the moon.  I swear he's going to kill himself in that thing.  It's super powerful compared with the 70 Duster with the 360 in it that he raced this past summer, :lol:  The Belvedere runs 10 flat in the quarter.  I CAN'T WAIT TILL SPRING!!!

Ah... remember 1985, when all this classic car fever was really starting to take off? That was the summer when I had some cash and was just twenty.

First, a guy I knew wanted a brand new Dodge Shelby GLHS, so he offered me his restored 1970 E-code Hemi barracuda for $12K, but the bank wouldn't loan me the money for a "15 year old used car".  THAT car sure sold fast... again and again, for twice the price each time until it vanished from sight.

Second, up came an original '65 Belvedere with 426 Hemi - for a total of $4500. It was clean, rust-free and fast. Unfortunately I had it in my mind that I wanted a new Firebird Trans Am with TPI and a 5-speed manual... and saved my money. I eventually saw it for sale on a used car lot, but I dont think it lasted long...

I wonder whatever happened to those two cars?

Awesome! My neighbor had one of these made into a drag car, and even though it wasnt street legal hed still drive it around the neighborhood! lol It was friggin loud too, you could hear him comin a mile away! No clue where the car is now..it had a 90s styled a checkered paint job on it..im sure whoever has it now already repainted it! lol

This is a cool ride.... the epitome of a muscle car, in my book. What state/city were you in, when you heard it coming?

Im in the same place when i saw that car drivng around, in a Texas town, near Dallas :) That same neighbor sold the Plymouth, and now has a 68 Dart with a 426 Hemi. But this one's street legal and he drives it regularly, and its just as loud as his drag car! lol

If I only knew then what I know now. These hard top Mopars of 1964 and 1965 were so easy to find in the 1970's and 1980's. I had one back
then but I sold it in 1992 to buy a new Honda family car. Now I'd like to have another 65 Dodge or Plymouth but they are too hard to find. MikeZ.

Sad story.... these were probably a dime a dozen in the 70's, after oil embargo!

In Springfield... I was picking up our generators, and saw it in the grocery store lot. Glad I stopped - it was gone coming back.

You got that right! What I can't figure out is why this 426 puts out 425 HP, and my 413 puts out only 350 !?
