Sounds like a peach of an engine. Those old slant 6 motors were stout indeed. My parents bought a '71 Valiant new and put about 115k miles on it. They sold it to my baby sitter who put another 150k on that engine before it finally threw a rod in 1985. She took that car through every single one of the lower 48 states as well as Mexico and Canada. Never needed anything but tune ups, tires and a few clutches. You did have to hold the shifter on the steering column in place when driving in second gear for about the last 7 years of that cars life, though.
