The 1971 Satellite Sebring Plus
Newest RWD addition to my modest
collection- The Plymouth is is an LA built Satellite Sebring Plus with 90k on
the clock, California car with ZERO rust on it. With the car is a fat folder of
documents dating back to 1971 including the emissions check form dated February
of '71 and sales invoice for $4400 and change with tax and DMV fees dated July
Major needs for the car were is a pair of front seat covers and the dash pad replaced (a NOS one was provided with the sale) it also has a slight skip which turned out to be a bent valve.

Only 10,400 SSP were produced in 1971
At the former owners in Michigan.
Pinstripe is original for SSP
You can see the cracks in the dash and the front seats are worn.
I re-skinned the seats in the winter of 2014-2015 and did a bunch of other work.
Dash all replaced! The radio speaker was also re-coned and several other things fixed.
The engine ended up having two valves replaced (one was bent, the other just looked odd) all new valve guide seals, the engine was painted the correct color, the battery was replaced, fuel lines replaced, power steering upper shaft seal replaced.
Car runs and drives great!
