For Sale: 1965 Plymouth Belvedere in Clarence, Iowa

Vehicle Description

For sale here is a unique Mopar that is similar to the cars many racers rebuilt back in the day to more radically modified forms in hoping to attain quarter-mile glory themselves. This is a 1965 Plymouth Belvedere also known as the "Chicago Hustle" this Plymouth is a custom California rebuild by Mopar restorer Bob Munoa starting with a solid body. Munoa created this custom altered-wheelbase car from the Belvedere sedan model, which is how many independent racers rebuilt their factory Super Stock A990 cars. This included the forward movement of the front and rear wheels beneath the car and application of lighter body parts. However, this has "too much is just enough" under the hood now, as the Hemi here is a 426-style model build upped by over 100 cubes into a 528 CI beast. This includes a set of period-appearance tall-stack Hillborn fuel injectors that are actually electronic, lit by a reliable MSD ignition system and featuring a nice amount of chrome and firewall detailing. As was the case with the A990 cars, this car has a trunk-mounted battery as well as an upgrade with a rear panel kill switch. The 528 CI engine is backed by a TorqueFlite transmission and chrome-cover Dana 60 SureGrip differential. The Belvedere's inside is customized like no other. Yes, there is a set of A990-type lightweight custom bucket seats and the "typewriter" pushbutton transmission controls, which are still in place and functional. Added are custom boxed-in control panels for toggles and gauges, done in bright red colors, plus tinted windows and a full roll cage. The outside features a custom graphics design in two-tone paint and lettering, race decals, blue-color headlamp covers and detailed race wheels with competition tires. This era rapidly changed the face of drag racing forever, and the "Chicago Hustle" Plymouth was built to let you experience it for yourself.
