1965 Plymouth Other

Up for sale is a beautiful 1965 Valiant Signet V8 convertible with Barracuda grill from the rare Acapulco trim model. This original California car is virtually rust-free and its Mopar 273 V8 is in exceptional running order. Just over 50k miles on the odometer as of this writing.
Many functional and practical upgrades make this Valiant a worthy daily driver. Upgrades include:
  • Power disc brakes
  • Electronic ignition
  • Electric choke
  • New wheels & tires with barely 1k miles on them
  • Vintage Air A/C & heat
  • Powered front seats w/ integrated 3-point belts
  • Reupholstered seats (front & rear, + powered front)
  • Direct headlight relays for much brighter night visibility
  • New convertible top, door weatherstripping, and window sweeps
  • New convertible top hydraulic lines & fluid
  • Brand new battery
  • Exceptional paint job
  • . . .and more!

Records and receipts are in-hand for all work done in my possession, which is most of the upgrades in the list above outside of the paint job and the top replacement. I've owned this car for the last two years and it's been a blast. A real head-turner.
Since pictures can be deceiving, the color of the car is nearly identical to Mercedes' Pearl Blue (Perlblau) Metallic.
Is the car perfect? Of course not. If I were to keep it, I'd spend another $500 or so on finalizing the interior by replacing the carpet and the door panels. (They're both fine as-is, but new repro parts would complete the look.) The Plymouth nameplate on the hood has a crack in it, and the driver-side headlight trim ring is a little "crinkly." (I can provide photos of both.) Finally, the speedometer backlighting doesn't work. All bulbs have been replaced, so the issue lies elsewhere. I'd imagine it's a quick fix, as all other electrical items work as expected.
This Valiant is being sold AS-IS with no warranty. I'm glad to provide additional photos or videos, so don't hesitate to ask! Buyer is responsible for all inspections, timely deposits, complete payment via wire transfer only, and any shipping costs. Both parties will be expected to sign a bill of sale which I will draw up. Title is free & clear and in my possession.
Most importantly, thank you for looking!
