    So as some of you know, my 64 New Yorker was involved in an accident and I chose not fix as there was just more then I have time deal with. So that left me without a Classic Mopar and I felt a bit incomplete.

    I always browse classic car ads to keep an idea on market trends & came across this car and I knew I had to have it!

    This will make the 4th Valiant I have owned...so it’s very clear I have a Valiant Addiction

    More pics to come, but I tired from the 4 hour drive home.

    The Valiant looks pretty sweat. Is the trim spear in front of the rear bumper stock? I don't remember seeing it on other Valiants.

    She does look nice, and the spear, really adds to its classic lines, stock or not (never seen it before, but might be a Canada thing?). Can't have too many Mopars, so it is not one of those bad addictions.

    Seems more like an attraction than an addiction, which is easy to do with that body style. Looks in great shape. Without seeing the grille or rear end, it's hard to tell what model year from '64 to '66 it is, but the vinyl roof indicates upscale trim -- a Signet, maybe? I hope it gives you thousands of trouble-free miles.

    Yes it’s stock

    That trim peice was only for 1964, V200 and Signet trim levels.

    Thanks! This car is in remarkable shape, the amount of work that has been invested is truly astonishing considering it’s a Valiant.

    This a 1964 Signet V200 2door hardtop.

    Good to read that it was well cared for. My practice has long been to pay as little as possible for a running vehicle with problems that I can repair, but a good case can be made for paying more for a car in excellent condition that you can confidently drive anywhere right now.

    The Signet was the top of the Valiant line until the Barracuda was introduced. I think it only came in 2-door hardtop and convertible.

    That's a gorgeous ride, Jamie. I was going to ask which engine, so thanks for showing the leaning tower of power!

    A good reminder of how simple engines used to be. You might consider an additive to neutralize the ethanol in the gas so it doesn't make you rebuild the carburetor too often. Very nice interior, too. The Signet was definitely upscale.

    Looks like you have a show car. I see trophies in its future.

    I generally follow this rule as well, but with 3 small kids, my time is just limited for big projects. So when this car came along, I just could not say no.

    I was telling my wife the other night, how it feels so odd having an old car that is so nice! After 20 years of projects, it’s a welcome change.

    What would be a good additive?
