You don’t see this kind of classic American muscle car on the streets anymore. What we have today is a 1972 Plymouth Satellite with a gorgeous color combination. Actually, it is painted in a Lemon Twist yellow color with an Alpine White vinyl top, chrome trim, and an awesome stance, it is a real eye-catcher anywhere it appears. Basically, it is a twin brother of the iconic classic Mopar’s, the Plymouth GTX, and the Roadrunner, however, this one is less famous but more intelligent and elegant. Therefore, let‘s don’t lose time and see what this gorgeous classic Mopar muscle car has to offer.
The Alpine White vinyl extends to the interior, where comfortable white vinyl front bench seats await a driver. The interior looks amazing and it is in excellent condition, it also gives a feeling of a large, warm, and comfortable living room. This Satellite has many options right from the factory, and they are air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, a remote driver’s mirror, and an original AM-FM radio. The only thing that we don’t like about this 1972 Plymouth Satellite is the column shifter.
The engine under the hood is a number matching Chrysler’s 400 cubic inches big-block V8 engine. This engine is factory equipped with a four-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust. It has an 8.2:1 compression ratio, which was considered for high-performance versions back in 1972. It is factory rated at 260 horsepower at 4,800 rpm and 410 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,200 rpm. A 3-speed automatic transmission system is spinning the rear-end which is connected to chrome Cragar SS wheels wrapped with BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires. In addition, it is equipped with front disk brakes and drums at the back. This is a nice packed Mopar with a powerful engine under the hood, a gorgeous interior, and excellent exhaust sound. A complete classic Mopar on a budget.
