6180 Morgantown Road
1975 Plymouth Valiant
The 1974 Valiant was also available in a "Scamp package" which included 318 V8 engine, three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power disc brakes, chrome trim, vinyl roof, A/C, carpet, split vinyl bucket seat bench, radio, rear window defroster blower, and 120 mph speedometer standard. Production was limited and ordered as customers requested the package, a few hundred were produced.
For consignment, a rarely ordered 1975 Plymouth Valiant Scamp, all restored and as our consignor states, and it is definitely true, a nice low mileage, clean, entry level classic car ready to be driven from our hallowed halls here at Classic Auto Mall and into your driveway. All you need is to pay for the keys!
Looking very sporty in its previous owner's efforts for a burnt orange respray, it has lots of shine and the paint is as deep as the feelings you had for your first love. Also, a satin black decal of a wide stripe runs from the grille to the windshield. Also, on the back a wraparound stripe runs diagonally upward in front of the lower rear quarter, apron the fender top and across the trunk lid and back down again, and is looking very racy. A beautiful black vinyl top is on and a few underlying bubbles can be noted on the B pillars. Speaking of that roof, a snazzy curved inward rear glass is atop the trunk deck and looks nice and smooth and rust free at the borderline. Badging is all authentic Scamp and chrome shows very slight dimpling but is nice and shiny overall. Topping off the bottom is a full set of 14-inch American Racing Torque Thrust 5 spoke wheels to add to the racy feel of this car. You little devil you!
A swing of either of the two doors reveals a parchment, (white), field of smooth vinyl, molded plastic, a thin wood appliqu strip and some brown carpeting for the lowers. Just slight wrinkling on the smooth vinyl but very nicely done. In front a nicely padded and stitched paneled split bench has fuzzy broadcloth inserts and smooth vinyl bolsters with piping, all in white parchment and all very clean. The same goes for the rear bench with a smooth center vinyl panel. The wood appliqu panel dash front houses a square speedometer, and a series of operand gauges and warning lights around this speedo. In the center an aftermarket Kenwood stereo with CD player is now neatly inserted above are the temp sliders, and below a series of A/C vents. This all floats above some seriously clean brown carpeting lookin like new. Above is a nice tighty parchment headliner. What the hell?
Under the hood is a very clean blue painted block of a 318ci V8, which designates this car as Scamp. Yes, it's a numbers matching mill, and is topped with a 2-barrel carburetor and a A904 3-speed automatic transmission. An 8.25 rear axle spins the tires from the power from the 318 cubes. The devil made me do it!
Just a bit of surface rust throughout peppered within lots of black patina undercoating. Previous rust repair is shown on the lower rear inner quarter as well as some bubbling on the outer skin. Otherwise a very solid example. For the front torsion bar suspension and power disc brakes are on, and for the rear leaf springs and power drums work together seamlessly. Noted is a Flowmaster exhaust with some rust through on areas of the pipes.
She fires right up and runs like a Scamp...or should I say champ? Needless to say good solid cornering, smooth shifting and an all working interior as to functionality.
A really cool grocery getter with some extra fire under the hood, a snazzy paint job, and some black decal stripes to add to the power mystique. Not many made with the Scamp option, and this one is all buttoned up ready to turn the key. Enough of my fire and brimstone description, get down here to see this pitchfork!
