1965 Plymouth Belvedere
A990 Hemi Recreation

Although this car is not an original Hemi car, it would take a trained eye to tell you otherwise. Extreme measures were taken in order to replicate one of Detroit's greatest factory race cars ever produced. As a matter of fact, many parts on the car are legitimate Hemi parts from 1964-5.

The restoration was completed in June of 2011. After the first year of car shows & cruises, the car has already received 12 First Place finishes and 2 Best of Show awards.
