    I looked at Rockauto and it lists both 9.25 and 10 inch for your Valiant. Now, in my opinion, which can be taken with a grain of salt, would assume it is the 9.25 inch being in a car if she has the three speed shifter and 10 inch if it were in a truck or four speed transmission option. I guess the best way to tell would be to remove the clutch and pressure plate first just to make sure. Sorry, best I can do to help.

    The online 1960 passenger car parts catalog at MyMopar only covers the standard Plymouth, Dodge, Chrysler and Imperial models, not the Valiant and Lancer. The 6-cyl mentioned is the old flathead, not the slant-6. Valiant was its own division in 1960.
    The 1961 catalog does mention the Valiant/Lancer and a 9 1/8" clutch disc for the base V-L.
    Is yours the V-100 model? Find a cross-reference listing.

    yes, I have base V-100 model. I think the smaller 9.25 inch cluth would fit.
