Values of original Hemi cars with solid bodies and accurate restorations have been steadily moving into the stratosphere, with $200,000 no longer unheard of for the right cars
Chrysler Corporation swears that it never produced any Plymouth Satellite Hemi convertibles in 1967, despite the fact that two have surfaced in recent years, one as-yet-unrestored production model and this 1967 “pilot” car.
Custom-built at the St. Louis assembly plant, this Satellite was equipped with a pre-production, hand-built 426-ci Hemi, four-speed transmission, and every available option including power steering, power disc brakes, power windows, a power top, and factory front shoulder seat belts.
It retains its original sheetmetal, showing 56,000 miles. This Satellite Convertable was built in spring 1966 and was the personal ride of John Berry, plant manager of the St. Louis facility where all the B-body convertibles were manufactured. The car’s serial number translates exactly as it should. Full documentation and authentication are provided by marque expert Galen Govier. It’s truly a “one-off” 426 Hemi convertible.
