1965 Plymouth A-990 Factory Lightweight


It happens all too often in the collector car market. A collector from Colorado bought his dream car a 1965 Plymouth A-990 Factory Lightweight Hemi Belvedere from a seller in Western Canada. Not only was he told that the car was completely original but he had a decoding from a Mopar historian of some reknown that told him it was a completely factory original car right down to the factory lightweight thin sheet metal fenders (you know the ones that tremble from the vibration of the Hemi motor.) It was even featured on the Velocity Channel during a documentary by Chip Foose about Mopar Factory Lightweights. Much to the owner’s surprise when he had it checked by some top Mopar experts he found out that the fender codes and body codes did not match.

This car has been SOLD.

Because of that the owner is now selling his 1965 Plymouth A-990 Factory Lightweight Hemi Belvedere car for much less than he paid for it. This might be an opportunity for the right buyer. After all, the VIN #s are correct for an A-990 car and the code on the block is correct, and he knows that this was an A-990 race Hemi 426 engine. It even has real correct Hemi headers, real A-990 factory race Hemi 4-speed, leaf springs, suspension, Lightweight doors, hood and hood scoop are all the real equipment, according to the seller. There is still a lot of value here, even thought the sheet metal and body may come from more than one car. So the seller is basically selling it for the price of a clone. He was asking $160,000 for it when he thought it was a totally #s matching car. Now he has a PRICE REDUCED tag in the ad taking the price down to $89,000. Your gain!
