Cohort Outtake: 1963 Valiant – Another Canadian Plodge

shot and posted at the Cohort by canadiancatgreen

Mix-and-matching Mopar A-Body front ends and main body sections is an old sport, and quite possibly someone in the US has done this very thing.  But Chrysler of Canada got a head start, having been building “Plodges” for decades. Here’s one I haven’t seen before: it’s a Canadian Valiant, but for us south of the border, it’s a Dart sporting a Valiant front clip.

It’s a bit fuzzy, but that badge on the c pillar says “VALIANT”, lest there be any doubt.

As much as I like the ’63 Valiant front end, I like the genuine Dart front end even better. But it may just have been too flamboyant for those prim and proper Canadians.
