About Plymouth Satellites

It takes some serious flexing to stand out in the world of 1960s and 1970s midsize cars. The Plymouth Satellite is a four-door sedan with a 7.0-liter V8 engine under its capacious hood, which is nothing to sneeze at even if the old monster is built like a combination between a tank and a yacht. The 1969 Plymouth Satellite and 1970 Plymouth Satellite were built along the same lines as the similar Belvedere, but expanded from two-door to four-door in both hardtop and convertible formulations. The car was the flagship of a Plymouth initiative to gravitate toward luxury, size, and prestige over speed and sportiness. Its design would later influence such seminal cars as the Dodge Charger and the Dodge Coronet, making it a worthwhile acquisition for serious collectors of automotive history. You can find the Plymouth Satellite, built either as a hardtop or as a convertible, on eBay where qualified sellers offer access to wide inventories of cars in conditions ranging from new, to used, to refurbished.
