The Plymouth Satellite was sold as a 2 door coupe, 4 door sedan, 4 door station wagon, and 2 door convertible.
The first Satellite was the top trim of the Belvedere. The Belvedere Satellite had a higher base price than the Belvedere I or II. It was only sold as a 2 door hardtop and convertible in that first year, 1965.
The 1966 Plymouth Satellite saw the introduction of the Street Hemi engine, which is now very popular with muscle car collectors. This would also be the first year the station wagon was made available.
In 1968, the Satellite became its own model line. The Sport Satellite was added as the top trim on the Satellite model.
The bodies on the Satellite remained the same until 1971, when they adopted the fuselage body style used on all Plymouth models at the time.
These cars have been featured in movies and on TV shows. The Brady Bunch family drove a 1971 Plymouth Satellite Regent Station Wagon. In the movie Reservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino's character meets his end at the wheel of a Plymouth Satellite.
The Satellite has become more and more collectible as the years have passed. Now the prices are starting to get out of control, but you can still find some good deals on eBay, and some good parts as well. As usual, the original cars with the Hemi engine are far more valuable than the others, and convertibles are generally worth more than the hardtops, which are worth more than softops or station wagons.
