For one reason or another Plymouth Satellites have been considered plain cars and are commonly overlooked as being a great platform for a performance musclecar. However, when legendary racing engineers Pratt & Miller build one, people start to take notice.
This 1969 Plymouth Satellite is nicknamed Bronze for its bronze coat of paint that really gleams in the sunlight. Pratt & Miller built this Satellite pro touring machine to show off their Restoration and Specialty division’s fine craftsmanship. P & M’s craftsmanship managed to catch the eye of popular hot rod vlogger ScottieD, while he was attending the 2014 Detroit Autorama.
When you pop open the hood, a black Chrysler 360 with a wild March Performance air filter and pulley system can be seen residing in the engine bay; the exhaust flows through a custom system that exists the fumes out behind the rear wheels.
Open up the doors and you will find a black interior laced with bronze accents including the word “Bronze” stitched on the headrests. A pair of buckets hold the front occupants in place, with Dakota Digital VHS gauges and a touch screen GPS make up the instruments.
A Ridetech suspension helps the car navigate around the curves while 20 inch wheels wrapped in Michelin tires stick it to the road like glue. Wilwood brakes at all four corners bring the beast to a halt.
Pratt & Miller has taken a plain Satellite and transformed it into gorgeous machine that stands out in a crowd, without looking too over the top. In the words of ScottieD, “Man a Satellite has never been that cool.”
