1965 Plymouth Valiant 200
Scott writes: Hello from central Fla., USA.
I bought this Plymouth as a complete running car from the original grandmother owner at a garage sale. The pictures show the way I bought the Valiant.
She had all of the original documentation, including handwritten letters from the Vice President of Chrysler thanking her for buying the car and I have all of these, plus all of the service records etc.
The Plymouth still had the factory original spark plugs, wires, cap etc on it from 1965: never been changed.
The Mopar runs fantastic, 225 ci slant 6 with auto.
So now I am going to do as much as a full restore as possible. All of the bright work will be replated and or polished.
I love this little beast and have turned down many offers to sell.
I need a couple of things for it i.e., the back trunk beauty panel, as they drilled a 2 inch hole in it for a trailer plug and I want to replace that. I am also looking for new door locks; the original ones rusted inside the door channel and are non useable and hopefully with a key lol. Anybody help?
Great garage sale find!
Good luck with the restoration and keep having fun!
