1964 Plymouth Valiant

1964 Plymouth Valiant

As the 1960s moved along, cars slowly transformed from the “bubble” looking designs of the 1950s, and became more angular and elongated. Power under the hood increased, and so did speed. The Plymouth Valiant was no exception to this. Introduced in 1960, the Valiant was not considered to be a Plymouth model until 1961.

After a record year in sales in 1963, the changes for the 1964 model were more focused on performance and reliability than its outward appearance, though it did feature a restyled front end. Horizontal bars, a Valiant medallion, and a new grille gave the 1964 model a new look. Additionally, Taillights were rotated so that they were vertical rather than horizontal.

The Plymouth Plaza

In 1954, Plymouth rolled out the Plymouth Plaza, which they priced under their more pricey models, while offering options that had been reserved for those more expensive models. The Plaza came in 2, 3, and 4 door sedan versions. A “Silver Special” Plaza was rare, and only offered in 1958. This special edition Plaza had silver paint on the roof and a stainless steel spear on the front fenders and part of the doors. A  few other final touches to the model made it one of the rarest classic cars, especially because there is no true way to know just how many silver specials were produced.

Of all the classic cars that are out there people who have a specific affection for Plymouth automobiles often gravitate toward the Barracuda.

A lot of people think that the first pony car was the Ford Mustang, and it is true that the class of vehicle was named after the Mustang. However, the Barracuda, which was considered to be a pony car once the term was coined was introduced first. The Plymouth Barracuda was released on April 1 of 1964 which predated the debut of the Ford Mustang by a couple of weeks.
