I have a 1963 convertible. The title says it is a dodge. The body emblems say it is a valiant signet. It has horse head badges on the grill and trunk lid. I have never seen anything like it, and can't find any info. What kind of car is this? Thanks, Chuck

Ok,  I am new to this site, and have not posted a picture.  I will try to get it done today or tomorrow.  Thanks for your interest.  I have looked everywhere I know to look, and I think this car must be a mid year, a prototype, or something.  The 1963 darts have a different grill.  This 220 signet convertible (That says valiant and has a dodge title) doesn't say dart anywhere on it.  So....anyway, thanks.  Chuck

I'm just wondering if it could maybe be a Canadian or even Mexican car? Like the Dodge Intrepids were Chrysler Intrepids in Canada.

   The car is whatever the VIN tag says it is. That is unless someone swapped tags.

I'm pretty sure that someone swapped some parts around. If it were a Dodge, it would have the Fratzog emblems. No cars had the rams head ornamentation then.

Here is a front pic of the Dart I am asking about.  It has the same horsehead on the trunk lid.  I haven't seen any emblems like this before. Title says it is a 1963 Dart. Hope to hear from someone about this car.dart2.jpgdart40.jpgdart11.jpg
