The Pick of the Day is a 1967 Plymouth Belvedere two-door hardtop that’s loaded with style and originality, and which the Greene, Iowa, dealer advertising it on ClassicCars.com says is in “show-quality” condition.
The Plymouth is box stock with just over 33,000 miles and a recent repaint, the dealer says. The car is a basic, unadorned model, which makes it all the more appealing.
“It’s powered by its great-running 318 V8 engine and backed up by its 3-speed manual transmission” the dealer says in the ad. “It comes equipped with its original AM radio, new dual exhaust and is riding on a nice set of original (steel) rims, dog-dish hubcaps with BFG RWL tires.
“This super-clean original car has been treated to a beautiful fresh bronze paint job with a extremely nicely done original black interior. It has amazing chrome and bright work as well. Its floors frame and trunk are rock solid and detailed.”
The was a particularly nice era for Mopar styling, and this Belvedere shows the sporty hardtop roofline with its downward tapering C pillar, which gives it a great look. The plain bench-seat interior looks to be in very good shape, with an attractively designed dashboard.
The 318cid V8 would provide decent power, though in standard trim the car is definitely a lesser-performance model. The 3-speed manual transmission is column shifted.
The gallery of photos with the ad shows a Plymouth that appears to be a showroom-fresh time capsule that should hit the spot for any serious Mopar fan. It’s rare to see one of these in such fine condition that has not been performance-tuned, customized or resto-modded.
“This is one super-nice classic that is ready to drive to your next classic car event,” the dealer adds.
The asking price of $21,995 seems modest for this unusual hardtop, which would be an excellent road-trip car that cries out for a Route 66 cruise.
