From Rust To Righetous: Street Machine’s Rustoleum Valiant Wagon Project Kicks Off!


From Rust To Righetous: Street Machine’s Rustoleum Valiant Wagon Project Kicks Off!

True car people need very little reason to take on a project. Bringing a neat old machine back to life is always a pursuit worthy of effort, but when a company is willing to back one of the bigger time and money consumers of a project, you simply nod your head, say “yes”, and get to work. Don’t shake your head and say you wouldn’t, either. Unless you are actively standing on a street corner holding a cardboard sign begging for money for car parts, we doubt you’d turn down the help.

Our friends in Australia have gotten their hands on a 1968 Valiant Safari (VE) wagon. Effectively, it’s a Dodge Dart station wagon…the one we didn’t get in the States, since Chrysler eliminated the wagon models in 1967 when the new body was introduced. So, it’s a late 1960s A-body…worth saving, regardless of whether or not it’s a six-cylinder car or whether or not it’s got enough tin worm to take care of ship deck plating. Ok, it’s not that bad, but it’s bad enough that it warrants a teardown and re-do, so with the support of Rustoleum’s Motospray line of products, they are going to bring this beauty back to life.

(That¬†is the goal, right, Scotty? And please, assure us a nice 340 will make it’s way under that hood.)

    FIrst thought was “go to Harbor Freight and get a 2500 lb winch” – that’s the hard way to load a car LOL.

    I’m impressed with how “little” rust this appears to have. These have a well deserved reputation for rusting.
