Bracket Racer: 1966 Plymouth Belvedere II Hardtop

If I’m going to pay money for a classic car, its gonna be for the experience.  I’ll pay for something that is unique, interesting, fast (or slow…depends on mood), and fun.  What I won’t pay for is some silly badge of exclusivity, the latest trendy flashy cool car, an over priced restoration, or more money than some other guy in a Vegas style auction environment suited to the seller’s best interest. This next car is something I could park my hard earned sawbucks into. Find this 1966 Plymouth Belvedere II Hardtop offered for $4900 in Petaluma, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

From the seller:

1966 Plymouth Belvedere 2 

fuel: gas 

title status: clean 

transmission: automatic 

This car was used as a bracket race car, but wasn’t modified, no tubs, no roll bar. It has a nice head liner and good seats and it has a good running 383hp engine and a 727 torqueflite with manual valve body. It was sitting for awhile so the brakes are a little mushy. It runs good but does need some tlc. It had a lot of sticker and sponsor names I removed some, but it need some cleanup.The car has an 8 3/4 sure grip differential. The heater box A/C unit that goes under the dash is in the trunk. No trunk rust. Right side front was repaired at one time, the rest of the car is pretty rust free. Good windows B and M shifter big radiator, good oil pressure.
