10k: 340cu 4spd: 1968 Plymouth Valiant 100

The Valiant  was an entry level compact car built by Plymouth from 1960 to 1976.  The third generation (released in 1967) competed with the Ford Falcon and Chevrolet Nova – even to the point of sharing their rectilinear design philosophy…tell that to anyone who says cars look similar today!  Find this 1968 Plymouth Valiant 100 currently bidding for $10,100 with 3 days to go on ebay, located in Shawsville, VA.

This Valiant has been given a thorough restoration and looks great covered in gold paint and sporting shiny chrome wheels.  The seller doesn’t specifically state it, but this was probably a low option car that has been given a 340 LA-series transplant, 4-speed and new interior.

Under the hood is a 340 cubic inch Mopar V8 covered in all sorts of aftermarket parts, assume something in the 350+ horsepower range and lots of tire smoke.  Thankfully it has a 4-speed manual gearbox instead of some fun killing slushbox.

The interior looks recently refreshed and features a front bench seat, which means this is a six passenger car – not a bad thing at all.  The middle center passenger is going to get some potentially unwanted attention when you shift into fourth gear, but bench seats rule!
