Eight Months Gone: 1972 Plymouth Satellite Sebring – Sold?

Aug 2021 | Classifinds, Malaise Monday

September 25, 2021 Update – While this “Classifind” expired recently, given the seller’s past history we suspect may not actually be sold yet.  For now, we’re labeling this ride “Sold?” However, we will keep an eye out for an updated listing. In the interim, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

May 8, 2021 Update – The seller of this ’73 Plymouth Satellite just listed a fresh posting but kept their price at $19,999.

April 8, 2021 Update – The seller’s price increase experiment appears to have bombed as we just came across the latest in a series of new Craigslist ads and the price has been lowered again back to $19,999 first tried in February.

March 24, 2021 Update – With three straight months of not being able to sell their ’72 Plymouth Satellite with an already slightly optimistic price of $19,995, the private seller thinks raising their asking price by $2,505 to $22,500 is going to increase sales leads now that the weather is warming up. We think it will take a bigger price reduction to finally get this Plymouth to find a new home before summer hits.

Despite the forced move to reduced power to meet ever-increasing emissions, Plymouth’s third-generation, fuselage-styled Plymouth Satellite looked the part.  It’s becoming very rare to find a rust-free, unmolested example such as this all-green 1972 Sebring currently listed here on Craigslist in Upper Montclair, New Jersey with non-working factory air conditioning, many spare parts, and a revised asking price of $19,999 (down from the original ask of $22,500).  The Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms that the ask is likely a bit too optimistic as it’s about $900 above this guide’s current #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $21,600.  If you are serious about buying this Plymouth, you can start the conversation by either calling or texting Bob at (201) 838-3662.  When you connect, please remember to mention you saw their Satellite Sebring featured here on GuysWithRides.com. Good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s description:
