1962 Plymouth Valiant Slant Six Drag Racing Barona drag Strip 2-18-2012
saturday afternoon at barona drag strip during the nhra summit series test and tune how about a 1962 plymouth valiant with a slant six vs a 1956 chevrolet.
The 1962 model year saw an extensive facelift. The radiator grille was flattened and made shorter. The hood release was moved to a knob at the top of the grille frame. The central grille emblem was deleted, except on the top-line Signet 200 2-door hardtop model, which received a black-painted grille with a round central emblem incorporating the red-and-blue stylized "V" Valiant emblem. The Signet 200 had pleated, leather-like bucket seats, custom tailored interior trim, deep-pile carpeting, special trunk lid emblem, different headlamp frames and special side moldings; it was America's lowest-priced hardtop with bucket seats
Fender and hood stampings were similar to the 1960-'61 items, but neither identical nor interchangeable. At the rear, the cat's-eye tail lamps were deleted. A wraparound stainless trim was applied to the tailfins, below which were placed round tail lamps set into stamped aluminum bezels. These occupied the space formerly available for optional reversing lamps, which for 1962 flanked the license plate below the rear bumper. The spare-tire stamping was eliminated from the deck lid, which was now a smooth stamping with a small central ridge at its trailing edge. On V200 deck lids, a large round emblem surrounded an oblong block-letter "VALIANT" callout on a black field. Similar block-letter/black-field callouts were placed on each front fender. On the Signet, the deck lid was adorned with a smaller round emblem surrounding the red-and-blue stylised-V Valiant logo.
V200 side trim reverted to the 1960 concept, following the tailfin crease and lower body break crease. However, the 1962 trim was more massive and contained an oblong triple-window effect at the rear of the body break crease. On Signets, the front fenders had an open-centred double spear, connected at the front and back, within which was contained a secondary body paint colour
FARGO FL 4-60. 1946.mod. Chrysler engine. 6.cyl. 95.hp.
Fargo was a brand of truck manufactured and sold in Canada by the Chrysler
Corporation. Fargo trucks were almost identical to Dodge trucks, save for
trim and name, and were sold by Chrysler-Plymouth dealers. Production began
in the late 1920s.
The name Fargo was discontinued after 1972 for Canada, but lived longer for
other countries around the world under the Chrysler Corporation's badge
engineering marketing approach. Most of the Fargo trucks and bus chassis
sold in Argentina, Finland, Australia, India, and other countries in Europe
and Asia were made in Chrysler's Kew (UK) plant. Most were also sold under
the Dodge and Commer names.
Theories on why Chrysler used the name Fargo include the imagery of open
range of the American west, symbolized by the city of Fargo and the
Wells-Fargo stage lines, while another theory assumes there was a play on
the words "Far" and "Go" denoting durability.

Will it Run? Episode Nine: 1962 Plymouth Belvedere
Hi! Cold War Motors just bought this horrible 1962 Plymouth; can we get it
to move again? It had been completely disassembled and left outside for
many years. The engine is seized, and the budget for repairs is zero, as
usual. Some unique problems, with it being a push button automatic, and
trying to jam in a later- model engine...
Its a bit longer than my other vids, I hope you like it! No more music,
as per viewer requests.
Thanks everyone for watching, commenting, and subscribing! More to come!
Picton Airfield in a slant six rail
This was one of my runs Sept 29.I wasn't pushing it too hard I see . Only
using 2700of 4700 avaiable stall. I need tor aise the whole run RPM by
about 800. Still you get a flavour of what it is like. Rail in the other
lane is an injected BB Chevy. Even though it is a huge mismatch we run just
for the fun of running the two FEDs side by side.
