I have been working this monster for over 10 years. My grandfather bought the Valiant in Kingsport TN in 1963 as a demonstrator...Before she died, my aunt asked me to restore it. Sooo many years, and a lot of blood, sweat and tears later it's almost done. Still a few details, and it's by no means perfect, but getting closer.
It looked solid when we started and figured the body work would take a month and cost about $2K and the paint would be another $2K...little did I know it had some ugly history...T-boned and bent frame at some point, horrific body work from the 70's - almost 6" of bondo in some places!!! Finding parts is an expensive nightmare...but here it is...
