Andres Pinto's GTX
Andres Pino of Buenos Aires, Argentina, owns this Valiant-based Dodge GTX (318 V8). Note the GTX logo in the rear - identical to the US, B-body model. We suspect the engine didn't look like this when it rolled out of the factory...

I'm a fanatic of the Crowned Valiant III. I possess one that I could consider a RELIC which is in a very good state thanks to the care and affection that we were providing to it. The car was manufactured in 1964, itīs a model V-270, sedan four doors with a six cylinder in lines, inclined 30 degrees with a capacity of 3687 cc, the capacity of the naphtha tank is 64 liters, the carburetor is a Holley 2535, the brakes are with Duet servo of simple action, with control of power. As far as the front suspension is concerned, it has got torsion Bars and shocks absorbers, the back suspension is Elastic
semi-eliptic and shocks absorbers. The tires are sport radials without camera of measure 185*70*13.
The car has a total of 156565 km from the year of production. The good state of the car is the result of my grandfatherīs dedication and the effort he made during his life. Then I continued taking care of it and itīs a pride for me because this car is my life.
