The Charger has now been sold but thanks for the favorable comments.
Just for clarification in response to some comments received we are fully aware this was not a Hemi motor and never claimed it to be.As mentioned in the video it is the decals only that follow in the style of the RT-which of course had the Hemi motor!
Start: $400 - Finish: Mean Green MOPAR: Violent Valiant - /BIG MUSCLE
The Plymouth Valiant was never meant to be a muscle car. It was never meant
to be fast, overly attractive or go around corners. Loved by grandparents
and college professors alike, the Valiant was the go-to car for those who
wanted smooth reliable transport. Owner Shannon Hudson bought this Valiant
for $400.00 and after 20 years of ownership and a few different versions,
built it into one of the coolest MOPAR A Bodies we've ever seen.
