Listen up Mopar purists! What you're looking at is a real-deal 426
Hemi-equipped 1966 Plymouth Belvedere II. Broken down by the
RH23H61 serial number(denoting it as a 1966 Lynch Road built, 426
Hemi-equipped Plymouth 2-door hardtop), Galen Govier has verified
this car to be 1 of 24 in the Galen Registry and the ONLY 1966
Hemi-equipped hard top registered with Code 999 Turbine Bronze and
its factory options!
Dressed in a rare, special order Code 999 paint code, the Turbine Bronze finish on this car's flat panels shows a beautiful hue under our showroom lights. With a slight metallic flake, you could almost be fooled into thinking there is a pearlescent effect under the glossy clear coat. The bright work and trim presents very well, it's very hard to find any imperfections, dings, or scratches. Chrome bumpers appear brand new, and the head lights and tail lights are devoid of any cracks or fading. Sitting on 1966-only blue line tires with dog dish hubcaps, it's definitely a sleeper look that will take any pony car prowlers by surprise. The car underwent a two year, nut and bolt rotisserie restoration, and what you're looking at is a concours quality build that looks as good as it did when it left the showroom in 1966.
One of the great things about Plymouth B-body cars is the elegant interiors. This one continues that appeal with a handsome Code H1T Gold cloth and vinyl interior. That cloth and vinyl covers the front and rear bench seats nicely and shows very little use. Stylish, gold door panels flank the passengers and feature chrome door handles and window cranks. Up front is a clean and straight, multi-tone dash that houses a locking glove box and factory instrumentation. What you won't find is a radio or HVAC controls as this car was ordered with no radio and heater delete, shown on the original fender tag. It's an extremely clean interior that will impress even the most discerning judge.
Lift the hood to a very clean engine bay that proudly displays an original, rare 426 cubic inch Hemi V8 producing 425 horsepower. Everything remains just as correct as it was built in 1966. It's mated to the original A727 Torqueflite 4-speed automatic transmission, and it's believed that even the radiator, carburetors, and manifolds are original to the car. Underneath is a show worthy undercarriage that features original floor boards. Included with the sale of this car is a photo album that documents the restoration with over 100 photos, Galen Govier documentation, an original service manual, a stack of receipts, and a slew of manuals and original Plymouth marketing material. You'll be very hard pressed to not be impressed with the build and rarity of this car.
Any 426-equipped car will always have a demand with collectors, and with the prices on specimens like this '66 Belvedere II seeing a steady rise in value over the years, we don't expect that to change. Being the only car with its options and color combination known to exist, you can bet there will be a lot of attention on this one in our showroom. Call today!
