1971 Plymouth Scamp

Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Here we go with yet another Chrysler A Body.

We've seen numerous representatives of the Plymouth Valiant family in this series, including this '61, this '61, this '65, this '65, this '71, and this '73. Only the last one was a Scamp, and we have yet to see a Duster.

In 1971, the Scamp was the top-of-the-line, two-door hardtop Valiant. You'd pay more for a Duster 340- and rightfully so- but the 318-equipped Scamp was priced at $2,685. Compare that to the $2,476 V8 Dodge Dart Demon, which was mechanically identical… or the 302-powered $2,523 Ford Maverick Grabber. Meanwhile, the Datsun 510 coupe sold for only $1,990.

Here's another location with two DOTS cars located within sight of one another; that's the white '60 Cadillac Coupe de Ville across the street.
