1965 Plymouth Belvedere II

I love your web site. I like the later cars a lot, but somehow whenever its time to buy something new, my $$ always goes into a pre-'66 car!
I've attached some pictures of my '65 car. I just got it finished, after 4 years, a wife, 2 kids and a relocation, but the wait was worth it!
The car's a Belvedere II. We used the Mopar spring relocation kit to pull the rear springs in 3.5". It's got a 3200 RPM converter ahead of the Torqueflite with a Cheetah reverse pattern valve body and then 3.91 gears.
It's a mildly warmed over 383 engine from a '70 RR.
I've changed my mind on a lot of things throughout the project, but never on the look of the car. The way you see it is exactly how I saw it in my head 4 years ago. I like the nostalgia look & I wanted the car to look like it was stuck in the 1965 S/S wars. The rear wheels are 15x10 customs I had made using Chrysler centers. They look factory at first glance, but after getting close, you can tell something's up.
I'd really appreciate it if you could post the car in you gallery. The other cars people have sent in are all fantastic and I'd like mine to be a part of the bunch.
Thanks, Mike! Glad you like the '62 to '65 Mopar Web Site!
I must admit I was very impressed when I first saw the pictures of your ride. :-)
And others who view this web page will certainly oogle over your '65, too. All that hard work you put into your Plymouth REALLY shows!
