Finally got a few pictures of my new/ish 69 valiant

  1. previous owner had the car painted. Seemed really solid, ended up needing floors which I am currently cutting out. Car now has a 383 with a few little mods, 8 3/4 with 391 sure grip. Was a console shift bench seat car. Will soon be floor shift, bucket seat. You guys are keeping me motivated on here! I appreciate it. Just got my freshly painted hood on. Hope to have to pics of my progress soon! Let me know what you guys think. My after the floors are done I need to repaint the trunk to get rid of that doofy skull the previous owner had put on and cleared over.

  2. My favorite part about this project is my dad has been helping me with everything. Teaching me all about mopars, he has about 4 of them. I'm only 26 and consider myself to be pretty mechanically inclined but I have a lot to learn. So far I have done new plus,wires, Schumacher bb headers, new fuel tank, refinished dash, refinished 15x7 cop wheels on 245 cooper Cobras. Got a bunch of nice now window trim from guys on here. All new weather stripping, rebuilt all the breaks, put disks up front. I'm sure I'm forgetting things but can't wait to get it back on the road
