1969 Plymouth Satellite convertible as a CLONE roadrunner. It has a 440 engine with 800-850 cfm TQ. 727 automatic transmission. I put in truetrac 8 3/4 helical gear differential first with set of 3.91 gear ratio and driving on the interstate was a little much so put 2.76 gear ratio in and very pleased with performance and actual gas mileage. It will come with the 3.91 ring and pinion. Front brakes converted to true mopar 12" (11.75") with factory parts. the only exception non factory is the slotted rotors and the master cylinder. I do have the original front drum setup and master cylinder. Engine has headers feeding into 2 1/4" pipe and magna mufflers. It has aftermarket rims how I bought it so do not have factory original. It has a new top with real glass window, all hydraulics work for the top. Do have a boot kit that I have not put on. The speedometer is about 10 mph off meaning you are doing 70 according to speedometer and actually doing around 82 mph. I did not change the little gear in the transmission after changing rear end gears. Excellent body, no filler, great paint. It does have factory air and heat in dash and replaced the hoses connecting the h-pipe for heater, It is a dual core heater setup. I was going to add AC with after market modern compressor but decided against it. Otherwise all you need is condenser, compressor, dryer. I installed a tach and little steering wheel. what also comes with that I have not put on is 440 intake performer / gear drive for timing / factory original cast headers. The instrument cluster when I got it had issues since the person before let the cable from the speedometer rest on the header collector area and melted the cable and seized the works. So has replacement cluster that works great (except actual mph as stated before). Interior in great shape, has brand new carpet. Few little things need addressed like missing the ash trays for the back. interior lights have been replaced with LED for interior lighting. have the filament bulbs if want to convert back. Added new plunger to carb due to today's gas (ethanol) but I don't run ethanol in the car but because previous owner did, the plunger deteriorated so upgrade to newer style in case next owner does run ethanol gas. Added manual choke as well. never have to step on gas to prime, just pull choke crank over, once hits, push to remove choke and you are good to go. It is a beautiful car and fun to drive with good burnouts if so desire (uploaded video having fun, this was before truetrac rear-end which it does get squirrely now if not careful). Get compliments all the time. Reason for selling is it basically is sitting in garage and working on other projects and would like to see it go where someone could appreciate it. Like stated before has highway gears so nice drives ahead. Cash or cashiers check only. Buyer assumes all pickup and delivery costs. Clear title, current tags and currently insured through Hagerty.
Update *** people were asking if original glass / wing windows / trunk pics / engine pics / interior pictures (new carpet) so added more pictures including convertible top up. Thank you

Wouldn’t you really rather have a Buick? So asked GM’s marketing team in a series of TV commercials promoting the Buick lineup in the 1980s and ’90s. The Reatta was Buick’s 2-seat coupe (and later convertible) from that era, and it packaged smooth styling and advanced technology into a car that provided a lot of […]

As the movement toward the electrification was, so to speak, picking up steam, car designers said they looked forward to exploring the freedom in styling they expected with bulky internal combustion engines being replaced by electric motors and battery packs. To date, most electric cars look pretty much like those powered by petroleum. However, that […]
