This 1966 Plymouth Belvedere II has a fantastic presence, a performance-built 383 V8, and the overall satisfaction of owning a distinct and complete Mopar hardtop. Nowhere else is a total package turnkey classic going to give you so much joy for this kind of money.
Sure, Plymouth had blue in their color palette in '66, but nothing was as standout as this. Instead, what you're looking at now is an exceptionally solid investment in serious bold attitude. The light evenly rolls between each panel so you can really see how nice the sheetmetal is and how uniform the gaps are. It gives this hardtop a memorable presence, and that's half the fun of classic car ownership. And more than just the paint and panels, this one really gets the details right, too. We know you love features like the blue dot headlights, correct badging, and iconic American Racing Torq Thrust alloys with a staggered tire size for a very aggressive stance. And the way the way the full-length trim has the bold red accent, you really know this is a quality muscle machine.
Inside, the seats, headliner, door panels, and carpeting have a deep, dark, and fresh feeling that lets you know there was a solid investment here. And more than just quality, you'll love it for the appearance. The factory pattern on the bucket seats has enough stitch work to look like a custom job, and the center console that runs in-between is a work of art. The dash panel looks great with all of its factory-correct element in place, but this one is also has nicely integrated upgrades, too. For example, while the original AM radio is still in place, the real tunes come from a more modern AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input. Plus, the upgraded three-spoke steering wheel and SunPro auxiliary gauge panel are great performance upgrades to complement what's under the hood.
This was at the dawn of the muscle car era, and this one celebrates it correctly. It was born a 383 cubic-inch V8 car, and so we're happy to see a big block still in this coupe. It's presented nicely with the painted inner fenders, Edelbrock valve covers, and an air topper announcing the large displacement beneath it. And when you look beyond the style, this one also has the performance substance of a large Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock hi-riser intake, MSD ignition, and Hedman headers that add more power as they also contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Out on the road you're going to feel plenty of power, but there's comfort present, too. The power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and front disc brakes all contribute to an overall easy cruising feeling in this muscle machine.
Complete with owner's manual, there are few classics that are just get everything this correct. So whether you're a fan of Mopars or just love high quality, you know this is the coupe for you.
