Pregnant Yak: 1963 Plymouth Valiant
This next car come as a tip from SecondMouse who writes: This car is a throwback to the days when most of the iron rolling out of Detroit had king mattress-sized hoods, got 9 miles to the gallon rolling downhill with a tail wind, and was about as nimble as a pregnant Yak. But the Europeans refused to make huge cars for sale in America, choosing sportiness and economy of operation instead, and the consumers were buying them, so the Big 3 were sticking their toes in the ‘cars smaller than Rhode Island’ water. The Valiant was one of the results. This example comes with the venerable Mopar 225 slant six and the amusing dash-mounted pushbutton automatic. It looks to be in good driver condition, pop-top and all. The enthusiastic seller is offering at $11,900 and ‘let’s talk’. Find this 1963 Plymouth Valiant in Sealy Texas via craigslist.
