Closely associated with the Valiant, the Scamp was popular and remains a desirable vehicle, renowned for its looks and affordable power. Originally featuring either a 225 Slant-Six or 318 V8, this particular 1971 Plymouth Scamp comes with a 340ci engine swapped within; the current owner reports the swapped engine has only 2,500 miles to its name, although the car reportedly has 27,000 miles on the clock. With a number of performance enhancements as well as some upgrades on the visuals, this particular 1971 Scamp looks fresh, despite its age or name. Because the car was only in production for a short run, and the aesthetic of the vehicle itself, the Scamp has become a highly desirable vehicle, and now you have the chance to be a proud owner of a car that is better than ever before.
Sporting a custom paint job in Olive Green on the exterior that complements the boxy and wide design of the Scamp, this vehicle looks and feels like a classic piece of American muscle through and through, casting a powerful stance thanks to its strong angles, straight lines and wide grille. Its road presence and charisma are unmistakeable, and it has been elevated thanks to a couple of painted scoops on the hood, new tires, and custom wheels. This is a car that turns heads and makes a statement. Stepping inside, you'll find a comfortable cream interior welcoming you. The interior is newer, as reported by the current owner, but fits well with the retro feel of the car, and although there isn't any air conditioning, why would you need it with a car that is perfect for putting the windows down and cruising down twisty roads?
With the new engine, the Scamp has transformed to a contender with even more power, further enhanced by a Holley fuel injection system, headers, a custom Edelbrock exhaust, new battery and electronic ignition among other performance enhancements. All that power is delivered to the rear wheels using a transmission that was swapped into a 4-speed manual. The pistol grip shifter only adds more character to the driving experience as you eat up the miles, a big smile on your face thanks to the powerful rumble of the V8 motor in this Scamp, if you choose to claim her.
