For Sale: 1963 Plymouth Valiant in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

Affordable honesty never looks this good. That's because there has been plenty of the right investments in this 1963 Plymouth Valiant Signet 200 that include shining paint, a sharp interior, and a bold view of the distinctive slant-six motor.


There's a simple reason for a thorough restoration on a car like this: distinction. This first-year, second-gen Valiant looks great with plenty of shine coming off the light blue paint. It's a modern clearcoat application with a metallic element to really make it pop. Rivaling the paint for the shine are the bright chrome bumpers, new headlights/bezels, and complete trim package. And the premium Signet line has a great pillarless hardtop look. You can really understand that Chrysler's designers took their time to build a detailed style. For example, there's a full-length crease in the sheetmetal that hooks around the front for a sporty sweep. This signature item also flows into the front overhang. That's pure style, and you get to see it so well on this crisply presented classic. It's a very vintage and complete total presentation. In fact, the only upgrade you may spot are those Cragar SS wheels. But they're a period-correct way to add distinction, and that's what this Plymouth is all about.


The sea of blue continues inside. The fresh appearance in the pictures is no accident because this was all part of the compressive work on the car. So the seats feel nice, the carpeting is plush, and the door panels are taut. There's even new duct work for the defrost. There are nice vintage pieces, like the push-button three-speed transmission, and the steering wheel reminds you this is a classic. There are joined by worthwhile upgrades like the LED interior lighting and an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with Bluetooth to upgrade your driving music into modern times.


Under the hood is a year-correct 170 cubic-inch motor. Mopar's distinct Slant Six really stands out in the tidy engine bay thanks to plenty of bold orange. This motor was also part of the restoration investment. There are some stealthy-done factory-style pieces, like the rebuilt carburetor, new hood insulation, and new copper radiator core. Other pieces are more obvious upgrades like the newer alternator, gas tank, and Pertonix distributor. We have a long list that details all the careful work that went into this classic (call for the full info,) and the result is a car that fires up eagerly and feels smooth out on the road. The other reason why it drives with confidence is a solid investment in the suspension work. It includes KYB shocks, a complete front-end rebuild, and the brake lines were even replaced. You were also upgraded to the stopping power of front discs. And new wide Cooper tires complete this great driving package.


The sale comes complete with TWO factory buildsheets, owner's manual, and maintenance records. This is a true all-around classic hardtop with style and substance. So don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
