BRIEF HISTORY ON THE '65 SUPER STOCK CLASS

In late 1964, as the new 1965 cars began to roll off the assembly line, Chrysler’s Detroit Lynch Road Assembly Plant became a hotbed of performance. A special A990 version of the Race Hemi was available in either the new Dodge Coronet or Plymouth Belvedere. The engine retained the 12.5:1 compression ratio and 425hp output rating from its introduction the year before, but it benefitted from several internal improvements, including a redesigned solid-lifter cam, aluminum cylinder heads, and a magnesium intake manifold. The bodies receiving these engines had thin-gauge steel components and lightweight Corning glass in the doors, rear-quarters, and backlight. To qualify for the NHRA’s Super Stock classes, 100 units of each had to be built. Out of the 101 Plymouth Belvedere Super Stock A990 built, 14 came with 4-speed transmission and out of those only one was painted in Bright Ruby Red.
