    Hey everyone, just picked up a new to me 74 Valiant feild find. paid 400 bucks for the car, and after some fresh fuel and laughin gas was able to drive it up onto my trailer and bring her home. not sure of the extent of the history on the car but I do know it was semi running 4 years ago but then parked.

    pretty excited to have this A body back from the grave and getting road worthy again. probably going to have alot of questions along the way but im sure ill find some good answers in the search bar.

      Greetings from Cleveland, TX, great find & even better save. What are your plans for the car? If it were mine, I'd slide a stroked 400 in it & keep it stock looking on the outside.

      Im not sure what exactly what I want to do just yet with it, looked at some junkyard 360's to maybe swap in or hop up the slant 6. really would just kinda like to to be a cruiser for different shows around the area. got some bad rust under the vinyl top and there the top meets the qrtr's. to start off I need some supension upgrades more than anything and a little tune up.

      Another Valiant saved! Looks like a nice score for $400. /6 is very dependable. Good luck with your build.
