I want to share with you our experience with our 1962 Valiant Acapulco, it's a rare version sold in Mexico, a person who worked in the Chysler factory plant of Toluca Mexico told us that only 60 of them were made, I help my bother Rick in the restoration, we do the body work, the paint job, and all the mechanical requirements, including a 225 slant six engine with an offenhauser two carburetor intake manifold, gearbox and a 3:31 rear axle from a 1965 Barracuda, many tips of how to tune the engine we took them from your forum, the forum has been a very usefull tool for us. I hope you enjoy the photos.
Here are the photos of the Valiant Acapulco

Wow, it's a beautiful car! I like the engine details (gold air cleaners, etc.).

Very nice car, besides having a extremely good looking engine room, that is also one of the cleanest engines I have seen!
