1974 Plymouth Valiant Sedan

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 is painted a very fitting beige: a basic color for a basic car.

  1. My first car (in 1987) looked just like the one above, except it had narrow-stripe whitewalls. Mine had the dark green interior, which got very hot on sunny days. Any interior pics?

    1. No, sorry, I don't like to take interior pictures. I'm sure it would look very suspicious to many, and I just feel uncomfortable taking pictures of interiors
