This Australian made 1963 Chrysler Valiant AP5 is a real blast from the past and is in good overall condition for its age. This retro classic has been subject to a light restoration and presents well both mechanically and cosmetically, with a black patina and original red interior.

By today’s standards the AP5 offers great performance - the 225 cid slant ‘six’ drives through a silky 3-speed Torque Flight push-button automatic - with a 0 to 100km/h time of 11.9 seconds. With 49,440 produced before the introduction of the AP6 in March 1965, this model is a true collectible. It shows 11,996 on the odometer and is accompanied by parts listing and paint receipts.

Chrysler Australia introduced the Valiant sedan in January 1962, a locally assembled and rebadged Plymouth Valiant from the United States. However, by May 1963 it had replaced the import model with the first fully Australian manufactured Valiant the AP5, AP standing for Australian production. An entirely new design with only the front doors, windscreen and front guards a carryover from its North American counterpart. It would soon be built at Chrysler Australia’s new $36 million facility at Tonsley Park in South Australia.
