Here's an update on my '65 Valiant 100 build. It had a tired slant & 3 on the tree. Though I do like that combo, I had a '71 LA 318 with a Magnum head/intake swap, and a 4 speed taking up space in the shop. I still need to fix an exhaust leak at the collector, but it's ready to be driven. Engine was sort of a mystery that came.put of a parts car but so far seems good, with 65 psi oil pressure at start up. '71 318 with Magnum heads, Edelbrock Air Gap for a magnum, AMC oil through lifters/pushrods, Quick Fuel 650 DP, Crane Fireball II ignition, cam sounds like the equivalent to a 340 4 speed cam, and a ball & trunion 4 speed with a Hurst Super Shifter I rebuilt. Exhaust is a set of Spitfire shorty headers, X pipe, Flowmaster 40s and 340 tips. It's a plain Jane, radio delete, bench seat, no trim, no frills, and so cool!
