I am looking for a project car for my 14 year old son who is quite mechanically inclined to work on for the next few years. I have a chance at a 61 Valiant two door with 3 speed on the floor. It runs and drives, but not reliably, so it will need a fair amount of work to make road worthy. The owner wants $1000 for it. So two questions. First, is that a fair price? Second, would a Valiant make a good project car in terms of the difficulty or ease of working on them, information available on working on them, and price/availability of parts? Your expertise is much appreciated!
