So you thought you seen everything? No. You haven't. HRCC is proud to announce (although a bit remiss) Project Violent Valiant!! A Plymouth Valiant is not exactly top of mind when tasked with building a kick ass race car. At a typical GoodGuys Autocross event, it’s tough to get noticed in a field dominated by Camaro’s, Nova’s and Chevelle’s running LS based motors. The Violent Valiant will hopefully help inspire the non-GM crowd to participate, and perhaps even think outside the box. We thought that the Valiant would be perfect because it is a small, light car and these A-body Mopars are almost built from the factory to be race cars. There’s not going to be much factory stuff left when we are done, but it is a great starting platform. Violent will feature Max Wedge based power with a Hilborn Fuel Injection backed by a Tremec T-56. Like our Raybestos 1964 GTO-R Giveaway Car, the Valiant will get a purpose built HRCC chassis in the style of vintage Trans Am racers with a healthy dose of modern technology. Look for the Violent Valiant at an Autocross or Road Racing event near you in 2014. WHY BUILD A ‘64 VALIANT? FOLLOW THE BUILD EXCLUSIVELY ON: BANGshift!
