‘Show quality’ 1967 Plymouth Belvedere 2-door hardtop

The Pick of the Day is a low-mileage survivor

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 Plymouth has a great-looking dashboard

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.

    Always thought original was the paint is was born with. So would you say it’s 50% original? Be nice if it had the period correct wheels and caps. Great color!

      I remember Mopar police cars having those wheels in semi gloss black and caps like those in the early/mid ’60’s. Maybe this car started out as a state/local government fleet order that was supernumerary, and sold to a citizen.

    This car is actually the middle series for Plymouth Belvedere. It is a Belvedere II which competed directly with the Chevelle Malibu and the Ford Fairlane 500. The top series was a Satellite which had the 273 V8 as standard. The 225 slant 6 was standard on the other models including wagons.

    For a car that’s "loaded with originality" and is in "show quality" condition, I’m wondering why the advertiser didn’t run pictures of the car he was describing versus the car in the photos he did show?
    A repaint even in the original colour isn’t "original", oversize tires, non stock wheels and hubcaps (all police pursuit pieces) aren’t "Original". A car in "show quality" doesn’t have a haphazard application of fresh undercoating tar-like material applied to a portion of the undercarriage. A car in "show quality" doesn’t have the remainder of the undercarriage coated in old grease and grime. A car that’s original doesn’t have a dual exhaust installed that the factory never offered. Either there’s two cars involved in this listing, or some copywriter has one hell of an imagination.
