Chronology    Back

April 1977:

    • I bought my 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX when it had 58,691 miles on it. The car was silver (no stripes) with no rust and had only one small ding. The car was 100% original, down to the dog dish hub caps.

June 1977:

    • I had the car painted a 1967 metal flake blue by a friend.

May 1978:

    • I installed a new H-pipe and new tail pipes (still available from the Plymouth dealer at that time).

April 1979:

    • I replaced the points type distributor with a Direct Connection electronically controlled distributor.

September 1979:

    • I had a Transgo full manual valvebody shift kit installed.

    • I replaced the Carter AFB with a Holley 4779 650 double pumper.

    • I installed Magnum wheels that came off a friend's wrecked 1970 Challenger.

September 1980:

    • I rebuilt the engine (~88,000 miles). The day after initial fire up, I drove it 1100 miles to college.

September 1982:

    • Unfortunately, I sold the car.
