This is the beginning of what I hope is a great learning, and bonding experience for me, my father, and my son. Me and my dad originally restored MY 63 valiant in the same barn, using the same tools that were going to do a lot of the work on my sons 63 Valiant. Heres some pics of my 63 and how its set up today. Its been a 22 year journey going through about 5 different incarnations. We found a great deal on a roller set up for a 318/727, but like all good stories this one has a little history. We originally started this process over 2 years ago when we bought a 1965 Valiant V100. The price was right, but the car was ROUGH. Floors were junk, quarters were junk, trunk floors were junk, it was just.................junk. But for the price, we could afford to do the metal fabrication to make it solid again, and still have less into it than what I could find a solid car for. My son was only 10 when we bought the 65 so it was no big hurry to get going on it. We tinkered with it, and had it running and driving shortly. It has a later model 225 and a 3 spd manual and runs really good. I had some work to finish on my 63, and my 97 Camaro SS, (yeah, I know, a Shivvy, but it really is a cream puff, low millage 12 sec daily driver.) So the 65 went on the back burner. Heres some pics of the 65. Upon searching, we found a completely rust free Arizona roller cheap. The car was cleaner than anything I had ever seen. For what we paid we couldn't afford to do the metal work on the 65, and, this car was the TWIN to my car. They are both Signet 200 2 door hardtop coupes. Heres some pics of how the car sits as of now. The previous owner was really excited to see it go to a family that was going to do something with it. The car came with 66 formula s radiator 66 formula s exhaust manifolds later model 727 and 318 converter Schumacher conversion mounts for the 318 318 electronic dist 2 MP electronic ignition boxes (gold, and stock) and many other goodies. I still have the stock hood and deck lid from my car (I had one off carbon fiber parts made for mine that are DZUS on), so that (IMHO) HIDEOUS hood scoop is GONE. Jason wants to keep the hood and put a HEMI Dart scoop over the hole...............I like that idea. Our first plan of attack is scuffing through the 4 or 5 layers of paint and getting down to bare metal, than priming it and bringing it back to my house to start modifying things for the engine swap. Thanks for reading. Eric and Jason.
