This 1980’s racer has been hibernating for quite a while, but is ready to go racing again with a new owner. In its glory days this Belvedere was powered by a 426 Max Wedge, and was raced by a his and her team. With some time and effort this Belvedere will run down the track once again. Bidding has only reached $2,125 and the auction is half over! Find it here on ebay out of Coatesville, Pennsylvania.
After one of it storage stints, this Belvedere was separated from its 426 Wedge, and again after a while without a heart, the last owner installed what is assumed to be a stock 440 with a 727 Torqueflite transmission. This current drivetrain was swapped 8 years ago and was pulled from a running car. So we assume not much has happened since the engine was swapped 8 years ago. The current owner bought the car about 6 months ago but hasn’t had the time to do anything with it.
The interior is bare bones as one would expect a drag car to be. This Belvedere retains its stock dash and steering wheel with an added tachometer, and racing seat. There looks to be some various surface rust and rust holes sprinkled over the floor. The rear wheel arches are there, but the driver side one certainly needs some help. Tubbed with a narrowed axle, this Belvedere is far from a stock body.
This Belvedere is looking to be a very affordable drag roller, with a long standing history of racing. It will certainly need updates, and some work, but maybe for the budget minded drag racer the current drivetrain could be fun until it went kaput. Who is looking for a little fun in the form of a racer with some history? What would you do with this Plymouth?
