Sleeper! '71 4-Dr. Valiant Sedan....with
a 5.7 L late-model HEMI


I found this on the net on the 'Mopar Action
Magazine' site. A few more technical details
would have been nice, but at least they
included a partial parts list with Chrysler
part numbers.

BUDGET BRICK

Al Harper’s 1971 5.7L Hemi Valiant is a low-buck
deal. Sure, Al lucked into a few things - like a
complete Hemi engine for a deuce and a quarter.
Still, the body itself required lots of labor to bring
up to snuff. So Al invested sweat equity instead of
Canadian dollars to keep costs low. The swap
wouldn’t have been as neat—or even possible
- without the following parts, which we list along
with their Mopar Performance or Chrysler part
numbers.:


TACH ADAPTOR
#P4510598

FLEX PLATE
#P5153753

EXH MANIFOLD
LH#53013605AB
RH#53013606AB

MANIFOLD SENSOR
#56028364AA

WIRE HARNESS
#P4510357

ECM MODULE
#P4510816

BELT TENSIONER
#53032131AA

OIL PAN DURANGO
#53021687AC


And for those who keep a file of people who are
thanked after each article, we include the
following, so you can add your appreciation along
with Al’s to the following folks. We understand that
some of these “Thank You” compilations from
projects completed in the ‘650s and ‘70s, have
gone for significant amounts of cash on eBay.
“Course these compilations were bound in fancy
leather covers with ornate hand tooling. So start
compiling. Who knows, you may end up with
something more valuable than your 401K (or
the Canadian equivalent).
