I got this beauty from the family of a "little old lady from San Diego". She was garage kept for over 40 years and it's all original with matching numbers. Well, allmost 100% original, I did do a couple tweaks and add-on's here and there. :)
A special thanks to Jason Muckala for the restoration work he did on this car... nobody does it better. You can find Jason at his shop in Murrieta or at http://www.motechperformance.com

Cold Start the 1968 Plymouth Valiant! Crank it...
Hi! Gonna cold start this 1968 Plymouth Valiant! My friend Agent 0826
bought this sweet old Valiant last summer and he loves driving it. He
parked it for the winter, so we thought we'd come out and start it up after
it had been sitting, drifted in deep snow and cold for months...

1964 Plymouth Valiant..SOLD...mp4
Unmolested, 1964 Plymouth Valiant V200 convertible with a 273ci V8 and
push-button automatic transmission. Only 904 of them were made with the
V8. 99% completely stock . . . it was repainted by the first owner before
I bought it some 18 years ago. I've put in a new windshield and new
carpeting. We've only driven less than 4,000 miles in the time we've owned
it, so it's been garaged and/or covered up all these years. You could
drive this car anywhere - NO leaks, noises or major repairs needed.
It's listed for sale with Bend Park & Sell right now for $13,995 - but I'm
always willing to negotiate that price for a serious buyer. Here's a car
that goes UP in value every year!!
Contact Rod at 541-647-1650 to test drive. Or contact me directly at
541-350-6500 with any questions. Thanks for your interest!

1964 Valiant Signet 200 Convertible
Owned Since - March 25, 2007 - SIX & HALF YEARS - WOW - time flies!
This car had been poorly maintained.
I think the last owner said when he bought it, the top engine was removed,
so he and a buddy started working on it and got it to a decent running
state. They upgraded the lighting (Daniel Stern Lighting) and the Master
Brake Cylinder was upgraded to a double reservoir. Brake cylinder upgrade
on these cars are always a good idea. He added seat belts in the rear and
drove his kids around his home in Seal Beach, California until his wife and
he were getting a divorce and the car had to go.
And this is where I came in and bought the car. Found on Craigslist in the
Seal Beach area, just over 100 miles north of where I live in San Diego.
What an experience! Had to have it towed as I had the top up and Exhaust was entering the car threw the trunk
area... (had an accident years earlier and the repair in the trunk was
poorly repaired, I didn't figure out until later...) So, I almost passed
out when I felt like I needed to pull over to stop. I had the car towed by
AAA Roadside Assistance. I always recommend Roadside Assistance,
especially with a classic car.
The next morning I got 5 New Tires and cleaned and polished-up the red
paint, chrome and vinyl.
This car was barely a daily driver, the steering was sloppy, front end
pulled to the right and there was noise coming from the rear-end or
transmission ( a humming.) Two years later I would have the rear-end
rebuilt and it was not the rear-end. It was the Transmission.
My friend Marty is my GO-TO GUY.. he came down and he went around, over and
under the car and gave me an "Attack Plan" since I'm no mechanic.
I first started on the drive-shaft. I never did anything like this before
and I've had Many Old cars. I use to pay to have things done, the good old
days, Ha. Now I do. It was a easy job to pull it out and take it someone
to rebuild and update the drive-shaft..
I was still out $400.00, but saved about $200 pulling it myself... I don't
have machining equipment. :-(
Front-End was a hands on job and the brakes ended up being done that same
weekend (my friend said it was a Now Job!
I was not ready to fork out extra $$ that weekend. Brakes are great, drums,
Over time - WOW, what a difference. Steering gear box, Exhaust system & cooling were also replaced.
A rebuilt 225 Slant 6 (from a Marine Shop in the Seattle area) and Rebuilt
the Torqueflite 904 Automatic 3 Speed Transmission (Rebuilt by Lemon Grove
Transmission) replaced in April 9, 2009
Many other items have been removed repaired or replaced prior to engine
and trans work...
Interior was missing all door & rear panels. The previous owner, in place
of door proper panels, instead covered board in grey wool (like carpet) and
put that up on doors and rear. A guy her in San Diego was selling some
items on eBay and when I went over to pick up a rear bumper, he offered a
group of door panels for a 2 door hard top, but they were looking like
water had got to them and were all warped, like potato chips.
Being crafty, I got to fixing them. First I cleaned them with Holy Cow and
made sure to make sure the board was just wet enough to be pliable so I
could place heavy objects on them to flatten them back straight. I did lay
towels down to cover both sides of the panels. After a few days I taped
them up and used Plastic Spray paint to paint them Red, they were Blue and
not Signet Styled, (with the silver Mylar rectangle on them) that's just
silver spray paint I did after the red. I took DAYS for the Red to Dry
Properly, nothing happened immediately.
Those Panels worked great as you can see in the video above, but I will be
looking to replace them with reproductions from a 66 Dart with carpet along
the bottom of the panel. I also like the idea of having a little something
from other A-Body Model Years, 1963 1964 1965 1966 Valiant's and Darts.
This is my Daily Driver & Future Plans include:
- Body work & paint back to Original Black- NOW DONE
- Painting the Bows - NOW DONE
- New Carpet - NOW DONE
- New Top - NOW DONE
- Bumpers NOW DONE
and the list continues...
but getting shorter -
New Dash Bezels - And Misc ...

1960 Plymouth Valiant 4 door sedan
Detroit was getting worried! That pesky VW bug was selling well..and it
didn't appear to be just a fad..and Detroit was not good at making low cost
vehicles profitably! Enter the compacts of 1960...Corvair, Falcon and
Valiant. Rambler was already successful in the field. The Valiant had an
amazing slant 6 ohv engine that had tremendous torque because of its long
stroke. The pushbutton Torqueflite gave the impression of an upscale
little car. It had nice extras like an alternator, while the competition
had generators. The most controversial thing about the car was the unusual
"European" styling, epitomized by the stylized spare on the decklid. The
actual spare resided in a compartment in the trunk floor. The following
year, Dodge introduced a spinoff of this car, the Lancer!
