If you have only just hit Aussie Motoring I should tell you that it comes to you from Hervey Bay – a town of about 50,000 people on the Queensland coast about 3.5 hours drive north of Brisbane.
For a town of such relatively small size we have a surprisingly large number of very interesting motor vehicles here in town. I’ve photographed and written about a few here already and there will be more to come but right now let me show you a nicely restored Valiant Charger I happened to see late this afternoon.
For our overseas visitors I should explain that all Valiant models were produced here in Australia by Chrysler. The first model rolled off the production line in 1971 and the last was produced in 1978. Some were definitely more muscle than others.
I’m certainly no expert on the Valiant Charger but I think this one is one of the more civilised CL models. If anyone can positively identify which model it is then feel free to mention it in the comments section.
The 1972 model Valiant Charger E49 sub-group is recognised as Australia’s fastes muscle car.
