Michael's Valiant VE sedan is a great example of a true old school street driven muscle car. Powered by an all motor stroker 360/408ci Chrysler V8 engine, the car has run a best time of 11.14 in full street trim.
Heathcote Park Raceway, Australia

NASCAR Powered Valiant Dyno at 9000rpm
Listen to the sweet, sweet sound of the NASCAR-powered Valiant on the Dyno at Summernats 27.
For you American visitors, the 1970 Valiant is built on the Dodge/Plymouth
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

7 Second Australian 1972 Valiant Charger
Not a car you see in the US that often, John Faraone's 4200lbs 572ci Twin
88mm turbo powered 1972 Valiant Charger
layed down some serious passes on Drag Week, especially the last day when
he overcame some tuning issues and broke into the 7's! We love seeing
people come from overseas to enjoy this insane event, especially when they
come from the opposite side of the world!

BLOKY - NASCAR-Powered Valiant Burnout
Check out Daniel Blok's VG Valiant. He's found himself a 358ci Dodge NASCAR
engine complete with P7 heads and a dry sump set-up. It makes around 800hp
at the crank and sounds fantastic when he gets it up over that 8000rpm
mark. Mopar porn at it's finest.
The 2012 Fastest Street Car in America! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 19
This episode of HOT ROD Unlimited screams with action from 200-mph street
cars at one of the most grueling events in all of motorsports: HOT ROD Drag
Week, presented by Gear Vendors. This is the most brutal test anywhere of
real drag-racing, street-driven cars, as the competitors hit the road for
1,400 miles to race five times at four different drag strips in five days
in a battle to post the lowest average elapsed time at the end of the week.
The winner is crowned the HOT ROD Fastest Street Car in America. In this
video, we'll follow the chase for that title in Drag Week's most outrageous
class, called Unlimited. Imagine cars that run 7 seconds in the quarter
mile, in excess of 200 mph, and then drive on public roads—in the rain,
over potholes, whatever it takes—to make it to the next race day to do it
again. Five times. Ever see a 2,800-horsepower car hauling its
own trailer full of tools and parts? You will here. When you wonder how the
staff of HOT ROD could ever make the statement that a Lamborghini Aventador
"isn't $400,000 fast," this video will prove why with legit American street
cars in a battle of speed and survival.
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend
