The 1964 Valiant was the first redesign since its inception and sported a trim, squared-up shape, similar in some respects to the style popularized by the Ford Thunderbird of the era. The grille was essentially an upside-down trapezoid and the fender line ran all the way down the side from front to back, where it curved back over the front wheel and faded out. The V100 was the base car, the V200 had more options, and the V200 Signet was top of the line not just for its model but of that era. The Valiant model all hosted a slant six-cylinder engines of 170 cid or 225 cdi, with 101 or 145 hp. The base model offered two- and four-door sedans and a station wagon, while the V200 added a convertible. The Valiant Signet, meanwhile, was only available as a two-door hardtop or convertible. Nearly one-fifth of Plymouth's half million units during the 1963 model year were Valiants.
This particular 1964 Plymouth Valiant Signet 200 Convertible is a rare find and hosts what appears to be original engine and transmission, a functioning power convertible top and a newly completed interior. This model was purchased by its current owner in 2010 and has had new paint completed, new windshield, new carpet and upholstery throughout the interior and a new top. With the classic push button shifter setup, the more powerful 225ci engine, rebuilt carburetor, new voltage regulator, fuel sending unit replaced, re-sealed power steering pump and fully rebuilt front brakes and cylinders, there are many great points to this vehicle hidden within! This model is in a good driving condition and is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner as such! With a couple parts and a little bit of time this could show to be a great showpiece to add to a collection or to be enjoyed at car shows! This model comes with many receipts and a good spare in the trunk. With all the life left in it and a lot of work completed to make this ready to enjoy, it's a model worth asking about within our collection and should be a quick sale this summer!
