Hi, new to the site, going Wednesday to look/purchase a 65 valiant 200 (kinda attached as my Grandmother had one) any advice or things to look for?
Thanks

Welcome to Allpar, Smitty. I don't really have any advice other than to look it over carefully for rust. Rocker panels, quarters and floor pans and trunk are areas I would really look at. Take a small magnet with you and check for bondo. A magnet will stick to the metal, but not to any area that may have been patched with bondo.

Wow another Craigslist train wreck! Hour and a half drive to find a rust bucket. Just goes to show even a pile of,,,, rust can be photographed to look like a peach. The hunt continues.

Man, that stinks. How far are you willing to drive. If I spot something, I'd be happy to let you know, but I realize Tennessee isn't a neighboring state!
