This car is a handful, but in a good way of course.
The 1965 Plymouth Belvedere you see started its life with a 318 cubic-inch V8, but has since received a massive engine upgrade. In addition, it was treated to a blazing red respray along with some other goodies for even more enjoyment. This bad boy now puts out a whopping 577 horsepower on the dyno and is looking for a new owner. Classic Auto Mall is excited to announce this Belvedere for sale and warns that it should not be taken lightly. This classic is a handful in all the right ways and you’ll be getting plenty of smiles per gallon.
Starting from the exterior, this ’65 Plymouth Belvedere received a nice red respray that covers the straightened steel panels all around. All of the trim work and brightwork is in good shape. The chrome and white painted spear runs along the sides for a beautiful accented look that helps break up the bold red exterior paint job. The front grille is in pristine condition and sits between single, clear headlights. The polished 15-inch Torque Thrust wheels and snazzy Commando V8 badges add some flair to this Belvedere. Three’s a crowd but two is just right, and this hood has the pleasure of sporting two scoops.
The color-matched red interior is just as striking as the outside with front bucket seats and a rear bench seat. The cabin sports a red vinyl and chromed center console that houses a B&M shifter, shiny V-shaped inlays throughout, and aftermarket gauges to help monitor important engine functions.
The most noteworthy feature of this car is probably the powertrain. This Belvedere is powered by a 426 cubic-inch Max Wedge stroked to 484 cubic inches. Internally, it’s got an Erson Hydraulic Roller Camshaft with a .582 lift, all kept well-oiled by an external Mildon Oil system. Other goodies include Super Stealth heads, A&A crossroad Edelbrock Thunder AVS twin 4-barrel carbs, an A-727 TorqueFlite transmission, and a TCI Frank Lupo Dynamic 3,500 Stall converter. This combination is truly a powerhouse and will leave you satisfied. The consigner states that the engine build has barely 500 miles on it and it looks new as well.
The 8-3/4-inch 4.10 Posi rear (Easton True Trac) puts the nearly 600 horses out to the rear tires, which are noted as 245/60R15’s. Front Wilwood 4-piston power disc brakes have been added, while the rear drum brakes remain. With all that horsepower, you can count on the stopped power to put it to a halt when needed. The current asking price is set at $57,000; you can make an offer right here.
