It is great fun to drive, comfortable on a trip and will even return 7ltrs/100ks.
Prices are always going up too so you will not loose money too.

I guarantee you will love one if you drive one.

I have 15" FIA pin drives, 7.5" and 9.5".
I bought Avons for it last week. 245's and 295's.
Can't wait to get it on the ground, right on the ground too

I'm a fan of 61-63 Thunderbirds. Been looking to get one for some time now.

The shape is an acquired taste but I love them. All the best features from the jet age /space age cars. Fins and tail lights that look like rocket exhausts, wedge shaped front etc. I think I like them because they are like an kids drawing of a space ship or something out of the Jetsons.





They also have the most amazing interiors





They are powered by the 390 Ford FE engine so there's a Cobra connection. They also have electric windows and many had factory A/C.

A bit of a land yacht but I reckon they would be a great family cruiser.

Cheers

Valiants are great family cars.
So much family time when parked on the side of the highway with the bonnet up.

Ive just got rid of the GC v8 jeep (3 engine rebuilds in 90000ks) and bought this but it's not really a classic cruiser. Still very very nice though. Name:  IMG_6784.jpg
