AJ's Car of the Day '71 Plymouth Valiant Scamp

Car: Plymouth Valiant Scamp

Year: 1971

What makes it special: Beginning in 1971, a badge-engineered version of Dodge's Swinger model called the  Valiant Scamp was offered by Plymouth, using the Dart Swinger 2-door hardtop A-body shell with Valiant front sheet metal and dual taillights carried over from the 1970 Dodge Dart.

What made it famous: The Scamp was the top-of-the-line Valiant model. The 318 V8 equipped Scamp was priced at $2,685 when new, and was lower in price than the Duster model, as well the mechanically identical Dodge Dart Demon.

Why I would want one: It's a low-buck hot rod. Add a few performance bolt-ons, and you've got fun at the touch of a pedal. Plus, it's a good looking hardtop.

Fun fact: "Road & Track" magazine considered the Valiant to be one of the best all-around domestic cars.
