The Chrysler Valiant was first assembled in Australia in 1962. Plymouth Valiants were shipped from the US in kits to be assembled as RHD in South Australia for the domestic market. The first models available were the RV1 or “R” and SV1 or “S”. These were the first Australian car to be fitted standard with an alternator rather than a generator. The R series was the predecessor to the S version in the US so only a few left over units were assembled in Australia. The S version had revised styling with the deletion of the simulated spare wheel insert in the boot and the “cat’s eyes” tail lights. The drive train was limited to the one option of the slant 225 cu in 3.9L 6-cylinder engine producing 145bhp. This was a big increase from what its rivals Ford and Holden could produce. This vehicle presents in overall excellent restored condition. Its previous owner was an avid classic car collector in Victoria who kept all his cars in the highest standard. The car has received a fully rebuilt engine to correct specification, a back to bare metal respray in the original white and a new period correct interior vinyl trim. The engine is paired to a 3-speed manual transmission located on the steering column. The car comes with a receipt file for works carried out.
