    I traded a near-perfect '68 Fury III hardtop for a '75 Valiant Brougham with a 225 Slant Six. It was a very plush and comfortable car, but my hope for a little better mileage over the 318 was a big disappointment. The six in the smaller car actually got lower mileage than the Fury, and it was the most underpowered Mopar I ever owned, and that included a 1.7 automatic TC-3.

    It was also the most troublesome with constant carburetion problems and host of nit-picking annoyance issues.

    Too bad the quality of that little Valiant didn't match its good looks.

    I love the "decidedly European touches like color-keyed wheel covers, map pockets, and assist straps".

    My Dad had a 74 Dart SE with a 318. Exept the manual windows and locks, it was very smooth almost like a smaller luxery car.

    We had a white over white 2dr. with maroon velour interior. Pretty well loaded, for an "A" body. 318, a/c, am/fm and the radial tire tuned suspension package with front and rear sway bars. That was the best built and running "A" we ever had.
    Yeah, the sixes were pretty well smogged to death by then.
