My 2 door Valiant
I think I started looking for another vintage Mopar around
1995, the idea was to find a driver not another project. It wasn't till
Spring of 2004 that I actually made an effort to look with true intend to buy.
Without a doubt I had my eyes on finding a 67-69 Barracuda but I quickly
realized that I wasn't going to find a driver in my price range. So I set
my sights on another A-Body and I figured that I might as well look at the
opposite end of the spectrum, a 4-door Valiant. The original target
vehicle was a 67-72 Base model, slant 6, 3-speed in white, tan or soft yellow.
Didn't quite nail it but I'm not disappointed, here is how the car looks based
on the fender plate and as it sits:
|351||Accessory Group - Basic
| ||Radio - AM
| ||Power Steering
| ||Wheel Covers - Deluxe
| ||Variable Speed Wiper
|471||Cleaner Air Package
|536||Left Remote Mirror
|13||Tires 7.00 x 13 WSW
* You need to keep in mind that the car is over 37 years old
and I have no broadcast sheet on it. The car does sport a set of standard
hubcaps not wheel covers but then again it does now have 14" wheels so the wheel
covers would have had to go, this is probably the case. This is the only
thing about the car that is a question, Wheel Covers? or Hubcaps?
In May 2004 the car showed up on eBay and was located in
Sacramento, 360 mile away.
