1969 Plymouth Satelite
Sport Satellite Convertible
1 of 100 383 2 Barrel Convertibles Produced!
It might actually surprise you to know that the Sport Satellite, especially the convertible, has a much lower production volume than the then-and-now-famous Road Runner. People who haven't even heard of a Sport Satellite convertible, won't be surprised.
In fact, the Red model pictured here is just one of 100 produced with the 383 "Super Commando" Two-barrel engine. 85 others came with a Four-barrel "Commando" 383 while the remainder of the 900 or so Sport Satellite convertibles produced that year came with the 318 V8.
Aside from badging, stripes and a muscular looking blacked-out hood, there's really little to outwardly distinguish a Road Runner or GTX convertible from a Sport Satellite convertible. In fact, with a 330-horsepower (five shy of the Road Runner 383) Super Commando 383, the Sport Satellite ragtop was about as quick as a base Road Runner and offered more chrome around the wheel wells and special red-highlight grille and recessed tail lights. Trim-wise, the Sport Satellite fell somewhere between the Road Runner and GTX.
Because of this, it's a wonder more weren't sold. On the other hand, it was pretty tough sluggin' against the over-hyped Road Runner, which in convertible form sold in numbers that more than doubled those of the Sport Satellite convertible.
Overall a great driver quality classics that is ready to enjoy. Paint is in good shape and considered driver quality. Mechanically sound with no known issues. Power top operates as it should.
This is one of this iconic and rare muscle Mopars that's great for show and go. So you don't want to let it slip by. Call now!!
