Sponsored Content presented by RM Sotheby’s.

Introduced as the top trim in the Belvedere lineup, the Plymouth Satellite was only available has a two-door hard-top or convertible sedan.

Like many American cars from this time, a number of V8 engines were offered to buyers, as well as a choice of both manual and automatic transmissions.

This 1966 Plymouth Belvedere Satellite is particularly rare, however, as it is said to be one of only 503 Satellites configured with both a 426-cubic-inch Hemi V8 and a four-speed manual transmission.

That 425-horsepower unit—a $907.60 option (approximately $7291 today)—could launch the car from zero to -60 in 5.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 130 mph according to Car and Driver testing.

This black-over-black Plymouth Satellite is said to have gone through “complete nut and bolt rotisserie restoration” finished with period-correct red stripe tires.
