The third-generation Plymouth Valiant was very similar to the sister Dodge Dart, albeit with a different wheelbase. The company dropped the hard-top, drop-top and station wagon versions to concentrate on the two- and four-door sedans. It’s 2.8-liter six-cylinder engine produced 115hp. Over the course of the next couple of years, visual tweaks were relatively minor, as were internal changes. In 1970, a new 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine appeared. In 1971, the Plymouth Valiant Scamp appeared, and was basically a Dodge Dart Swinger with different badges. In 1974 the Valiant became a rebadged Dart in its entirety, and continued largely unchanged until it was deleted two years later.
