Mother Mopar has produced some of the most unique cars of the 20th century, and while many old Mopars may not have drawn positive attention ""back in the day,"" they have finally and solidly come into their own. The Plymouth Valiant was initially offered as a counterpart to the mid-1960s Dodge Darts, but by 1972 the Valiant and Dart were one in the same. A variant of the Valiant, the Scamp was first introduced in 1971 as the Plymouth equivalent to the Dodge Dart .....
The most notable difference between a Scamp and a Valiant is wheelbase. The Scamps were all two-doors, and sat on a longer wheelbase. It was more or less a Dart Swinger with a Valiant front clip. This 1972 Plymouth Scamp is in exceptional shape, and is an overall solid vehicle. It has definitely been repainted in the past, and it looks like the vinyl top has been replaced in the past as well. Both the paint and the top are the correct original colors for this car, but the paint is showing some signs of age. Sitting on a set of factory 14"" Ralleye wheels, this Scamp looks sharp! For a Mopar enthusiast in the market for an affordable weekend fun car, look no further.
Under the hood is a Chrysler 318 V8. This is the perfect choice for a small Mopar A-body such as this, as it provides both reliability and plenty of power for a car this size. The 318 in this car absolutely purrs, and the factory-equipped air conditioning blows cold! The engine and bay appear to have seen maintenance, but it would not be accurate to describe this car as restored. The 318 is hooked up to a Chrysler 904 3-speed automatic transmission. While the engine casting date is correct for the build date of this car, the transmission appears to be a different year. This is an affordable turn-key cruiser! The only known defect is a leaking power steering gearbox, but a new unit is included with the sale.
The interior has lots of original parts in place that are still in great condition, but it would be surprising if it was all original. The dash pad is in excellent condition with vibrant color and minimal sun damage. The seat cloth has some stains here and there, but is free of major damage and most enthusiasts would agree that the seats do not need to be recovered. Overall, the interior is in remarkable condition for a car that has not been restored and is ready to be enjoyed!
It isn't very often one comes across an old Mopar that hasn't seen a full restoration. This is one of those rare opportunities! It has had some repairs here and there, as expected for a vehicle this age, but still retains many good original parts and has that ""original feel"" that restored cars always seem to lack. If you're a Mopar man or woman on the hunt for an affordable weekend fun car, or an affordable classic driver, your search is over with this Scamp!
