Can someone identify this paint job for me?

Recommended Posts

As far as I know it is a Plymouth satellite but would like to know if it is a factory paint job and if so how rare it is.

No, not factory, but most definitely a one of a kind paint job, making it rare indeed.

Did you take other pics, was the hood there and does the roof have the same paint scene?  Sure is interesting would like to know more.

Definitely not factory. I don't think Plymouth even had a green like that in 1966-67. I don't think any manufacturer did.

Looks like that bad boy's been there for some time ...  Are you able to open its driver's side door and read its V.I.N. ?

that is all the pics I got of it, the roof is painted the same colour, the hood is not on the car but it is might be it the General area, it was original a 383 car but the guy who owned it just bought it for the motor, it is missing the front suspension, it has a 8-3/4 rear axle, it’s sitting on its side and he will sell it to me for $50. 

That is all I know about it.

You "cut a mean tree" when you were racing it . Was the battery relocated to the 'trunk' ?

Are you going to take it? Looks like a real cool project if it's restorable. Do you know what the "other" side looks like? Having been sitting on the ground that way for a long time, I'm betting it's gonna have at least some rust issues. Those Mopars rust bad enough in the normal position, can't imagine what happens when it's sitting on a side that probably didn't have ANY rust protection.

Get more pics if you can. That car's got loads of character!

Definetly grab the sweptline truck.  Looks like 69.  Demand is slowly increasing on those early D series trucks.  If you can swing the Satellite and Chrysler at least they don't head to the crusher.

I agree. The sweep line looks like the best project from the pics. If you want to build something find the best and most solid car/truck you can find. Rust is hard to deal with and you will keep finding it..

Yeah the sweptline is one of the best ones I have seen aside from the fact that the drivers side fender looks like it kissed a tree but that is an easy fix.

The 440 in the Newport is probably the high compression one (TNT I think it's called?)  That would be a beast in the Sweptline!  ;)

By looking the grill, this is a 1972 Chrysler New Yorker. If it has a 440 it's low compression, not a TNT
