Canadian Export Serial Numbers

Histories and photos of the cars

The 1962 right-hand drive Valiants and Lancers used the 1961 dashboard.

The 1963-1964 Valiant, models TVX and VVX, were the Valiants sold in Canada, but they were built in Detroit for export as well; they were sold in Great Britain with right-hand drive. The Dodge Kingsway two door wagon was called the Commercial Utility, just as the Diplomat was.
