1965 Plymouth Belvedere

One the the original NINE Hemi 4-Spd Plymouth A-990 Belvederes! There are MAYBE only two or three left IN THE WORLD! We\'re looking for a very affluent and discerning Mopar collector, this car MUST go to a good home. Super Stock, VIN RO51193546, was scheduled for assembly at the Lynch Road plant on Friday, December 22, 1964. It was later transported to Ferris Motors in Savannah, Illinois. (Note: This dealership ceased operation on June 30, 1965.) It had nothing inside except van seats and a steering wheel, manual brakes, no radio, heater, or seatbelts for that matter. In a time when the Mother Mopar had its favorites on the dole, this Super Stocker was campaigned by privateer owner/driver Larry Griffith as the Hurst Tornado IV. Not many unaffiliated racers could afford the luxury of extra equipment, so Griffith?s car originally ran steel wheels all around instead of lightweight magnesium.
