Take a look at this! What we've got here is a name you don't hear very often, much less see a clean example of. This one-owner, 1973 Plymouth Valiant ""Scamp"" is a neat little car, and its powertrain dictates that it isn't a very lazy one. It also has plenty of life left in it, clocking in with only 75,976 original miles. This one comes with loads of features, very highly optioned from the factory. What makes this Scamp as cool as it is its unique, bright blue paint and .....
working factory AM pushbutton radio. Now, the Scamp's story starts in 1971, when Chrysler's Plymouth division wanted to have its own version of the highly-popular Dodge Dart Swinger. As a result, Plymouth created the Scamp, based on the Plymouth Valiant. This Scamp is powered by the classic 318 C.I. V8 that breathes through a 2-barrel carburetor, providing perfectly ample amounts of power. Torque from that 318 gets to the rear end through a 3-speed automatic transmission on the column, making this Scamp a great cruiser. This Scamp has a really striking color combination, covered in original, stunning bright-blue paint with a white vinyl top. The original interior matches the color scheme, as the blue vinyl bench seats are very comfortable and fight right in with the stock feeling of this car. Options fitted to the Scamp in question include air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, a working factory AM radio, factory gauges, seatbelts, and a nice-sounding exhaust. The car rides on some great-looking Chrysler rally wheels over some ""Ovation"" blackwall tires. It isn't very often you see a Plymouth Scamp, even less often that you see one that is as nice as the one you see here. This Scamp definitely won't last long in our showroom, so make sure that you're the person sitting behind the wheel when it goes.
