Junkyard Find: 1972 Plymouth Satellite Sedan | The Truth About Cars

i know im always posting about early 70's Mopars so here's some more opinions i have a feeling you will agree with. do you agree with the responses posted? with the premise that the Satellite wasn't worth the extra $$ spent over the Valiant? and that the Valiant was better?

also pls check out the green busted up interior of the 72 Satellite

had the interior not been so busted up and had been intact, what would your impression of it be today compared to say an AMC Matador of 1972. higher quality, about the same or less quality? we already know that most people found the mid sized Mopars to be tackier than their GM and Ford counterparts

do you find that Chrysler's efforts to make the Satellite more like a personal luxury car in the vein of Monte Carlo and Gran Torino Elite have been successful with the Sebring Plus that I posted?

I find it to be quite attractive indeed tho the grille seems like it can't decide if it wants to be a Mopar or not.

Yes, me, too. The '68-'69 Road Runner with the 383.

Also the '69 GTX with the standard 440 and the '69 Dodge Coronet R/T with the (again) standard 440 engine.

I didn't care for them as much after '71, when the compression ratio (and power) dropped. Good family cars, but not really for hi-performance fans.

As for the early-'70s Valiant VS the Satellite, I like both but would probably pick the Satellite. Close, though.

i find this green Coronet so attractive and stylish. do you think they restyled the cars in 1971 to better compete with GM? i know not everyone likes these but the lines still look so fresh and contemporary.

Nice car although they have the spec wrong on the listing. The 440 six pack motor was conservatively rated at 390 HP not 340.
