Reader Plymouths For Sale In Indiana

Pair of Plymouths

These two vintage Plymouths were sent in by Barn Finds reader Banita C., who is located in Jeffersonville, Indiana (just across the bridge from Louisville, Kentucky). There’s a 1974 Plymouth Gold Duster and a 1965 Plymouth Valiant Signet. The Duster has the venerable 225 cubic inch slant 6, with automatic, air conditioning, power steering and power brakes. According to allpar.com, the Gold Duster package first appeared in 1972 and was marketed to dealers as being designed to turn “prospects” into “prospectors.” The Valiant also has the slant 6, and has an automatic, air conditioning, power steering, bucket seats, and a console shift. It’s interesting to note that the Valiant was the predecessor of the Duster, and that the Duster was actually designed in six weeks (!) based on the Valiant body. These are the only pictures Banita sent us, but if you want more information, you can email Banita here at bbrgnbyr@aol.com. The asking price is $2,500 each, or you can take them both for $4,000. Let us know if you decide to pick up these older Mopars!

    I wish there were more pictures and info. These could be good project cars with good economy as a plus.

    All these slant six cars lately have me wondering what HiPo parts there were and was there ever any cross flow heads (like a MB slant in the 300SL) made? Low profile design, a little heavy maybe, but still dirt cheap to find and put in a rod or something, different. Not so much of the Dusters and Valliant’s like these two to have survived. If they check out for their bones, of course. I’d save them from some Hemi transplant It’s not that far for me to roll down I-71, LOL!

      There used to be a club for these slant sixes that focused on performance. It was known as “The Leaning Tower of Power”. I don’t know if it’s still around but, if so, they would be a good place to start if you were in the mood to hotrod one of these engines.

    Just googled “the leaning tower of power” and it is still there with lots of links and some great video’s. Who would of thought a slant six could be so much
