RealRides of WNY - 1973 Plymouth Valiant

Cars in the 1970s, which we’ll be featuring all this week, didn’t get much more basic than this 1973 Plymouth Valiant. Standard equipment was Chrysler’s famous 198-cu. in. Slant Six engine and a column-mounted three-speed manual transmission (for a little extra you could get it on the floor). This one, seen last week in Tonawanda, is a little fancier with the Custom Exterior Group — a bunch of chrome bits which brightened-up the otherwise drab, boxy body. Drab or not though, these things were very reliable, relatively inexpensive transportation for an average American family, with a starting MSRP of just $2,447.
