1971 Plymouth Valiant

Basic transportation at its best: the Plymouth Valiant. Has there been such a simple, reliable, and perfect for its purpose car since? The slant six will run forever, so too will the rest of it. Introduced in 1960 to compete with small compacts from the U.S. and abroad, the Valiant lasted until 1976 and, although it was available in fancy trim packages, no one cared. They are still common today, a testament to their reliability, but each Dart and Valiant has its own unique character. This one retains three of its original hubcaps, and an optional vinyl top over the very 70s baby blue paint.

  1. True old parked car. Old enough for not only collector car plates, but horseless carriage plates as well, and yet rocking the tabs like a daily driver!

  2. Nice looking car. I've never seen a 1970-72 Valiant sedan before.
