Oh, and yes, they, the Belvedere did get good mileage with the six, and even with the 273 or 318 V-8 it wasn't bad on gas. My Mom's Belvedere was a wagon though, but it was nice while she had it. I forget what happened with the Valiant and the Belvedere both, why we didn't have them longer than what we did. She didn't have her Satellite long either, as she was speeding and got into a wreck on a side street in our Chicago neighborhood with it. She totaled that baby. Said she wasn't going that fast, but I told my Dad at the time, "Yeah, she goes 40 to 60 down on 83rd St at times and you know it's only 30 and 35 over there. 40 might not be so bad there, but not on a side street." She was furious with me! I was like 13 or 14 at the time.
