Mike writes: I feel real lucky to have my Plymouth. I purchased the Belvedere two door sedan from a club member of my car club, (Conroe Cruisers), although he backed out on me three different times while I was trying to buy the Mopar. The guy even backed at the Credit Union when I was getting the check for the car. But thank God he changed his mind and sold the Plymouth to me! I bought the Belvedere on September 29, 2009 and hope to have the car a long time.
The Plymouth was restored by Rick Livingston, body work and more.
|The motor is a 440 stroked to 500 with a
complete roller system internal. Aluminum heads
and every part is new except the block.
The block is a late 1960s casting
which I was told was bored .30 over. The
motor was built by Ray Buckner in New Waverly,
Texas at their race shop. It was chasis
dynoed before I bought the car and
the motor made approximately 435 rwhp.
I am not sure who did the interior, but as you can see,
The underside of the Plymouth is very clean and has a very nice exhaust system which includes a electric opening from inside the car to open the collectors, which is seperate from the exhaust that runs to the rear.
After I bought the Mopar I had Texas Motor Sports in Willis install Cal-Tracs, Calvert racing shocks on the rear and Calavert racing 90/10 shocks on the front with Nitto 555 rear street radials. Now the Belvedere gets a little traction.
Thank you so much for the 1962 to 1965 Mopar Web site!
