Is This 1965 Plymouth Belvedere The Perfect Non-Numbers Matching Mopar For Beating On?

Is This 1965 Plymouth Belvedere The Perfect Non-Numbers Matching Mopar For Beating On?

While we have always preached bout there being no sacred automotive cows around here, but let’s be honest. Some stuff is easier to justify beating on than others and this 1965 Plymouth Belvedere is literally waiting for your left and right feet to get happy at the same time and fry the tires off the back. There are 1965 Plymouth Belvedere examples that are insanely valuable and rare which would fall in that “maybe not” category when it came to power shifting them down a strip but this one is built just for it. See, you get the best of all worlds here. Steel wheels, a cross ram big block, a four speed, and those exhaust pipes turned down right by the bumper. The catch? The catch is that the big block is a 440, the car was probably a stripper weakling when new, and there’s no remorse in laying the pedal flat and making this mutt work for you.

In many ways we love the car for being pure Mopar and we doubly love whoever built it for sticking the Mopar Performance cross ram on it to give it some individuality and period look. Of course this is BangShift so a 4-speed scores points by its presence, and the steel wheels really make this car our spirit animal.

We want to know what Mopar fans think of this one. It is an “in house” cross breed that has some stuff that isn’t “correct” for its era but overall it does not vary from the Ma Mopar world. We’re sure that purists freak at the mere sight of the scoop and cringe when hearing there’s an RB engine in the nose but if you are like us, that stuff makes you smile.

So what’s your take?

    All that’s missing is the wonderful orange paint on that cross ram. An object lesson on subtle hood scoops and a joy to behold!

    Like the body color wheels and dog dishes. M/T + cross ram, what’s not to like?

    I’d die a happy man with that one in my shop. Yes, one could paint the intake but I’d live with it like it is, too.

    I love me some MOPARS and this one is just right.



    This is what I would build if time and money were unlimited. Although, I do not LOVE that color blue I would cut off body parts to give this a home in my garage.

    For $36K I can get two modern Mopars both of which will stomp this pig into the ground. Both will be built from the ground up (body, suspension, etc.) to handle the power and both will have A/C to boot. Restomod is great but there is no premium price warranted.

    Oh, by the way, “as is” means if anything is wrong you have no recourse. I say again — FAIL!

    Why in gods name would you consider “Beating on” a nice old car?

    You aiming for the jobs of the dimwits of Roadkill?
