1972 Plymouth Scamp, fully restored with a few "extras" for good measure. She's been repainted in Sassy Grass Green with matte black covering the hood. She has a new black vinyl top and a repro Go Wing on the trunk. She's wearing BF Goodrich tires, 245/60 and 205/60's on matte black Cop Car wheels.
The interior has been redone with Challenger buckets and new Legendary Interiors covers on everything. Autometer gauges keep watch on the vitals, and a B&M shifter controls the trans.
Under the hood, a '78 440 (rebuilt mostly stock) is taking over for the stock 318. 452 heads have been cleaned up and given a 3 angle valve job. An Edlebrock Performer RPM intake holds a 750 cfm Speed Demon carb, and a Mopar Performance .484 cam controls the valves. A full MSD ignition system lights the fire and a set of Schumacher swap headers let out the spent gasses.
An early Torqueflite 727 has been treated to a B&M shift kit and also sports a 3000 rpm stall converter, while out back, a 9" rear end is holding a 3.89 posi unit.
All in all, just a fun street car to relive some old memories in.

Brandon, I was trying to buy the '65 Satellite (red, 4 speed car) when this one popped up. I watched it for a day or so, then made an offer. Wish I would have seen it on racingjunk first, could have saved Tom (the owner) and myself a few thousand bucks. Oh well, she was well worth what I paid.
