About

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. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Plymouth repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Plymouth Valiant repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
