      Yeah I appreciate the info you threw my way and yes it is a good start. I'll get some more pics up in the next few days when I can get some help. I had rotator cuff surgery 2 weeks ago on my right shoulder so right now I'm almost useless.

      Love it a great car in good shape. Pressure wash it, it is the easiest way to get the mold off.

      Very Nice! It looks to be in great shape. Best of luck on your recovery from surgery. I'm sure you'll heal faster knowing you have something to look forward to working on! Great car, I love it!

      I hope the doc did a good job and you let it heal or you will not be pulling/pushing on any wrenches for a long time, mine was dun and it let me work about 6 years and it was ready for another surgery.
      That is a very nice looking Valiant :cheers: stay away from it and let that shoulder heal sir :color:

      Hey memike what color is your car painted? That color looks really good. I might do that
      with a matte black hood and black steel wheels.

      Nice find! I really like the way the hood on these dips down in the middle. Years ago I had a 67 GT Valiant 273 4 speed. One I wish I had again.
