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.

VE Valiant VIP 1968, Barn find in UK, engine start after 25 years
Originally published on Nov 29, 2012. Video modified Feb 2013.
A very few of these Chrysler cars made in Australia were imported into UK
in late 1960's. Shares a lot of parts with the US Dodge Dart. 273 cubic
inch V8 engine (about 4.4L). This was actually smallest of the Chrysler
small-block engines. This car was sold in Cardiff around 1970. Had been in
mint condition with 32K miles on clock until around 2 to 4 years ago when
left outside in British rain. Lots of surface rust but all panels are
sound. No welding needed.
Drained oil. New oil. Oil down bores. Oil on rockers. Checked engine
turned. Starter changed. Starter relay fixed. Spun engine with plugs out.
Found a few distributor problems which were fixed. Checked for sparks then
went for a first engine start after many years standing.
Rigged up temporary fuel supply to carb (funnel and hose seen in video) as
petrol from tank smelled like varnish so could damage engine if used. Very
cold winter evening.
Feb 2013: Second half of this video taken when engine running sweetly after
a lot more work and a small incident with burning petrol. Putting petrol
down the carb is OK most of the time but it CAN (and did) catch fire if
Lots more still photos of the ongoing work here:
