    This is a thread for posting photos of A-bodies that you have seen round your neck of the wood.

    There are no particular rules or time limits, so it can be at a car show a couple of years ago or just yesterday in the street.

    This RHD 1967 Barracuda appeared over a year ago but has not yet left the yard where it is stored, so I assume it is off-road or not running. It seems orignal (down to the interior and steering wheel) apart from the boot lid panel which looks like it is from the 1969 model.

    I assume pics from for sale ads is OK? I got plenty of pics of '67 Valiants for sale here in Sweden over the last decade. I also keep a register of the Swedish '67 Valiants with VIN, colour, size of engine, number of owners etc... As of today I have information of some 150 cars. And about 100 of them with pics.

    I have the pictures at work though. I could start show the '67 Valiants tomorrow.

    I suppose it is more for face-to-face encounters with cars (these threads are common on "classic cars" forums). Maybe we need another one for "For Sale" ones?

    Very impressive: I think this merits better than this thread anyway: can we chat about it offline? I'll PM you later.

    Interesting. What does the license 19F indicate, as it's a "short" number? Is that an old number, anything special, or just luck of the draw? I have no idea how plates over there "work" except that some cover up most of the bumper, LOL

      No, it is just that I have only partially obscured the license plate :)

      The F suffix indicates the car was first registered in 1967.

      Well, actually, there's more than that. The registry I have is for 200 (give or take a few) '67 Valiants.

      These numbers are a couple of years old but gives you a hint:
      No Make Year
      2094 Valiant and Duster 1960–1976
      179 Dodge Lancer 1960–1963
      1591 Dodge Dart 1960–1976
