#Eden Citeria Valiente
Eden Citera Valiente, Founded in 1951, is an American automaker founded near Tacoma, Washington, by a man by the name of John “Eden” Greany.
John was bored one day in 1946, after returning from the 2nd world war, and decided to look about at buying a new car. One thing he didn’t like was that none of them were what he wanted.
##A sports car.
So, he began to build a concept…
######that will come soon
#1947 Eden Typhor Concept
As he was making his company, he John Needed a name. What name did he choose? his own nickname was what he ended up using.
His first concept was called the Eden Typhor, a spacesframe, 2.0L V8, that he had lifted and modified from one of his friends old car, and some basic suspension would be the basis. Made in 1947 to just prove that he could make one, he was able to get his friends involved with supplying what he needed. Those friends were Marcus Citeria, and Alfie Valiente.
The concept was painted in a simple white. Enough to make the Typhor that more interesting.
Production Version Coming Soon…
#1951 Eden Citeria Valiente Typhor Prod.1
The First ever full production vehicle, the Typhor Prod.1, pretty much identical to the Typhor Concept. One change from the Concept is the adition to the V8 of another Carb, to make it three. Little had changed from the concept
This car had bolstered ECV into a full fledged company, with many of the Typhors being sold within hours of being finished.
#1953 Eden Citeria Valiente Rune FT
The Rune was the idea of John’s to push ECV into a more marketable and profitable company. Powered, yet again, by a slightly altered V8, again 2.0L in size. The Rune was painted in a black, and chrome details were adorned over the FT. It also featured a Space Frame, that was altered from the original Typhor design. He had hired some staff to help with some processes, and the first factory was built with two lines, One line housed the Typhor Production (until 1956) and the other housed the Rune Production (Until 1961)
#1956 Eden Citeria Valiente Eos Dawn
The Eos Dawn was made as the Replacement for the aging Typhor. The Eos was made using another variant on the Usual 2.0L V8 used in all ECV vehicles. The difference, apart from the body, was mounting the engine in the rear and building the body from fiberglass. This was some kind of strange thing, as the driveablilty of the car was greatly affected.
#1958 ECV Crest FT
In 1957, ECV had decided to expand their original factory out further, by purchasing the neighboring factory from an old, and defunct food processing plant. Two more lines were created. Line Three was for production of the various 2.0L V8s that ECV had become known for. The Fourth line was dedicated to production of a new vehicle. This wasn’t a car, but a Van. The Crest was used as a large people mover, and a transport Van (not pictured, labeled as C-FT)
The, again, 2.0L V8 in the Crest was mounted just behind the driving area, but ahead of the main seating. The Crest could house up to 9 people in relative comfort. Transmission was an altered 2-speed Auto from the Rune. Top speed was quite low, and had garnered the nickname as the Barmy Bus. Production wouldn’t cease until 1969.
Really nice cars man. The Valiente Typhor Prod.1 is just, fantastic. I wish it was real!
#1961 ECV Mammoth F
In 1961, John drew up a replacement for the aging Rune. The Replacement was almost 2x the size of the previous vehicle. Marcus Jokingly called it a “Mammoth of a F–ker.” John seemed to like the Name Mammoth, and Decided to name his new beast that. Its size wasn’t the only thing setting the Mammoth apart. Its engine was extremely different compared to the 2L V8 engines that were being used. This one had a 6L V12. Built on a similar Ladder Chassis to that of the Crest Van, it made building the Mammoth that much simpler. Not many of the Mammoth Vehicles were built due to how difficult it was to make the V12 engines.
#1965 ECV Duneking OR
With the End of Eos Production, their goals shifted toward making something different. That “Different” was the Duneking. A Somewhat smaller chassis than the Crest was used, with a more rugged exterior and interior. The Duneking looks somewhat similar on the front to the Crest, and a new 4L V8 was introduced. Production ended in 1972.
#1967 ECV RAVEN X2-R
In 1965, ECV halted Eos Production. Nothing was introduced immediately. Two years past, then came the RAVEN. A massive engine, massive power, massive tyres, massive looks. The V8, 7.4L in size. The power, 391hp. The tyres, 215mm front & back. The Price, Affordable. Production was halted in 1969, after 755 units were produced. The name RAVEN was chosen, as it fit with the looks, and the full black paint.
“You can have it in any colour, as long as it’s black.”
#1967 ECV RAVEN 402c
What is the 402c? That would be the Super Limited Run model for auto racing, including 5 which were raced in the US Trans-Am series. Including the Trans-Am models, only 20 were built. The Engine was custom built to be over 9L in size, and produce over 475hp and around 600lb-ft of torque. There is only 7 running 402c’s in the world (as of 2016)
#1969 ECV RAVEN MkII X2-R
When the MkI production ended, a replacement was instantly implimented. This would be the RAVEN MkII. With a 4.0L V8, the MkII is much smaller than the previous generation, as ECV saw the previous RAVEN as too big of a vehicle to be sellable. The MkII keeps a very similar front end, with a similar headlight array and bonnet scoop. It is the first ECV vehicle to use a Monocoque chassis design. The MkII would stop production in 1972, with the introduction of the leaded ban.
Nice designs over here
Congratulations Vri404, you actually made the body of the '69 Raven MKII looks like a sport car. I always have a hard time with that car body…
Well, that’s in Fruinia, because in gasmea the leaded ban happens much later…
I don’t know what I did. But IT GOD DAMN WORKS!
It is the big one, not the small one, so there’s that
Edit: Let’s add some cars while I’m at it.
#1972 ECV Mammoth MkII FV
in 1972, ECV needed to get another big car into the market. They had stopped making their last big car, The MkI Mammoth, in 1968. The New Mammoth was yet again fitted with a V12, but this time was marketed as an Upscale/full-size luxury vehicle. The V12 fitted in the MkII would be 8.0L in size. Production of the MkII Mammoth would end in 1976.
#1972 ECV Crest MkII FT
Alongside the Mammoth MkII, The 2nd Edition of the Crest was introduced to the world. The MkII Crest would feature a modified version of the Raven MkII V8, which is Direct Injected, and runs on Unleaded Fuel. With 9 seats, and enough power to get the 1.5 ton van moving, the MkII crest is no Slack. Production was ended in 1979.
How did the 67 ECV Raven 402c race in trans am series when the displacement limit was 5.0 liters XD.
Other than that nitpick these are some really great looking cars.
You can tell I didn’t do my Homework
Shh, its ok, i heard the officials didnt notice, the size difference was due to the DOHC and not the engine having a massive bore.
Jumping out of the normal Cronological Order, to introduce something I decided to make.
#1997 ECV Racing R323
After the Failure of ECV Racing in the 1995 and 96 Formula One Seasons, ECVR Moved their eyes to the FIA GT Series. The 1997 season was the first foray into GT racing after the US Trans-Am series had ended. The Car they made was entirely custom. 25 cars were made to homologate the R323 into the GT series. The V8 in the racing model is mostly identical to that in the road going model. The entire car is made from Carbon Fiber, with Homologation Models selling for anywhere above $575,000 each. The R323 Placed 4th and 6th in the GT1 Class in 1997. The Car in 4th Place, #44, was driven by American James Rathner, and German Gerhardt Waltener. The Car in 6th Place, #45, was driven by Frenchwoman Élise Quint, and Fin Viljo Järveläinen. The #44 R323 Continued Racing until 2000, while the #45 was sold to a private team, and kept racing until 2003.
Now, Back into Chronological Order
#1974 ECV Eos MkII Dawn C
ECV had an idea. The Mid-Engine Platform was something they wanted to try. ECV Looked around at some other Mid-Engined cars and went “fuck it, lets have some fun.” The Eos is what happened. Its looks are molded around the Small Convertible section, above the door seam. The 1.3L V8, that produces 85.5hp is not that much. This machine was a test, that failed. ECV would not touch the Mid-Ship platform until the 1980s. Production was limited to 277 vehicles.
OOC: This is the vehicle I have put the most Visual design detail, placing the black strips to produce the desired effect. I would ask for you to ignore the blue sections between the black areas, as I did not want to glitch the game out.

#1976 ECV Rune MkII
The Rune has finally gotten its successor. The MkII is another strange vehicle. This one is powered, for the first ever time in an ECV car, by a 2.1L V6 engine. Being a mid-size sedan, it isn’t the best machine to work with. The MkII, Labeled as the Rune MkII FT in The Americas, and the Rune FT MkII in Europe, sold surprisingly well, with Demand outweighing supply at some points during its six year production run.
###Rune MkII US PD Edition
The MkII was also produced for the united states Police Force. The US PD was fitted with a 4L V8, strengthened chassis and body, and more sporty suspension. Nothing was changed externally, with it looking identical to the FT. Many of the US PD versions were sold off after active duty, and have become the most sought after MkII Rune Models in the United States.
###Rune MkII EU PD Edition
The MkII was produced in very limited numbers (Anywhere from 150-950 cars) for the English, German, French, and Spanish Police Forces, mainly implemented as Highway patrol and Border patrol vehicles. The EU PD was fitted with a modified and slightly larger version of the FT V6, this time being powered by twin turbos (fitted with help from a certain English company) The EU PD was much more similar to the FT.
