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

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.

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!
