I thought I would join up and share. My main area of interest with Mopars is the 1960-62 Valiants and 61-62 Lancers. I do have a couple of other vehicles with big block motors from another manufacturer but they aren't suited to this forum. Over time I will share images of what I have stashed away...For now I would like to share images of my 1961 Plymouth Valiant Wagon. I first purchased a 61 V200 Valiant wagon in 1996 and dragged it home. It was pretty rough. Needed replacement guards and a whole new floor pan. The tailgate was shot and what was left of the interior was pretty sad at best. But I was pretty "bright eyed" at the time and thought I can tackle this. Seven years later I havent started any restoration on it yet. (Mainly because I was working on a 61 Valiant Hardtop) In 2003 on the way to Portland airport I came across another 61 Wagon. It was running, but it ran rough. In fairly good condition and the owner wanted to sell. She was looking for a mid 80's Mercedes wagon to buy and needed to sell. I was out of town for a while but called her a few times to discuss the wagon. After a while and $500 later it was mine. I sold off the wagon I had and I organized the recent purchase to be delivered to my place. It still took me a few years to getting around to start restoring it. I wanted to collect a few oddball parts and bits for it. Work got in the way some years. Other cars got in the way. Family health got in the way. Life got in the way.. But I kept at the small things where I could. In November 2017, I got it painted. Now a lot of things are finished. But I need to start putting it all back together. I hope to show images of putting it back together (along with other pictures of interest). My main goal with this wagon is to a period correct (Where possible) restoration. Something most people would never bother with, with a Valiant. But hey I have always been a bit oddball myself.
