Notes

Uniflite built 159 Valiant 40s from 1975 to 1984, when Rich Worstell, a Valiant owner and dealer, bought the molds. After producing some 40s in Washington, he eventually moved the operation to Texas. The first “Texas” Valiant 40 was hull number 267. Production of the Valiant 40 continued, on a limited semi-custom scale, until 1992 when it was replaced by the Valiant 42 model.
