1965 Plymouth OtherExcellent condition Valiant...local California car: Slant six 225 cu in.; Torqueflite 940 tranny; automatic w/ power steering.
Car runs great. Needs nothing mechanically. Funny...this car was one of the uglier cars in the sixties but now it just has character...rare and cool.
Very clean and original all around.
-All work done below less than 2000 miles ago:
-14x7 Original Mopar Rally Wheels w/ 215 x 70 x 15 Goodyear tires
-New Front and Rear drum brakes (complete overhaul w/ lines and e brake)
-Rebuilt Transmission (column shift original) with rebuilt speedo cable w/ new pinion gear and gasket set installed
-New engine main seal and oil pan seal
-Rebuilt steering column w/ new bushings/turn signal indicator/steering shaft
-Rebuilt steering box
-Rebuilt front suspension linkage and steering components

-New Convertible top
-USB under dash stereo w/ 4 speaker setup and amplified woofer in trunk
-Recent new upholstery
Upholstery/carpet is fairly new with no rips
Only issue with car that I know of is the dash pad is cracked hence the dash pad cover. There are usual small seam oil seepage (tranny speedo cable and main seal) but those are brand new seals and gaskets, are only available made from cork so they swell and contract and some seepage for this year is inevitable.
The car is a partial daily driver for me so it's been maintained constantly. Freeway mostly.
Probably the cleanest Valiant you'll ever see. I bought the car 5 years ago from the second owner who garaged it and drove it on Sundays. I went thru the car and have driven it 2-3x weekly ever since. It has been garaged its entire life as far as I know. I have not seen any evidence of frame or body rust other than very, very minor surface type of a 50+ year old car.
This car is being sold as is with no expressed warranty. The car has been cared for by a few local mechanics and I have all records from my ownership and some prior.
