Cohort Pic(k)s Of The Day: ’64 Dodge Dart GT, ’62 Valiant Trailer & ’68 Road Runner

It’s been a few days since I shared some of the Mopar madness material that user Hyperpack has been uploading at the Cohort. And after yesterday’s Charger and Challenger post, I feel it’s a good time to do some catch-up.

From previous Cohort posts by Hyperpack, I’m pretty sure these vehicles are part of a family collection that was being sold, scrapped, etc. Not all were going away though. The gray ’68 Road Runner is making its first appearance at the Cohort, but the ’64 Dart and ’62 Valiant-trailer have shown up on a few occasions. With that in mind, I would think that those two must be ‘keepers.’

Here’s the ’64 Dart on its own. One of the first images of it to show up at the Cohort a while back.

Meanwhile, the Valiant-trailer has also made repeated appearances. Here it’s again, next to a race-track Valiant of similar vintage.

I honestly never thought of a Valiant as material for a makeshift trailer. But if the rest of the car was shot, heck, why not? Oddly, I have a feeling some out there will feel this arrangement is an improvement over the car’s original lines.

I’m one of a peculiar few who enjoys the original Valiant for being such an oddball. Not that I mind the Valiant-trailer one bit. You all know I have a soft spot for handicrafts and creativity, especially in the automotive realm.
