This iconic 1972 Charger R/T was restored in a completely original fashion and presents in the most desirable Hemi Orange with black accents. It is one of the best examples in the country. The black interior is immaculate and has been masterfully re-trimmed in a period-correct manner. The engine bay and undercarriage present as well as the exterior; a testament to the quality and extent of the restoration.

The 265 Hemi-6 is mated to a 3-speed manual, providing the raw and powerful feel these cars are so famous for. Having been meticulously looked after by its previous owner, this example drives as well as you would expect from a restored car of this quality making this a collectible Australian muscle car. It represents a great opportunity to own and enjoy a piece of Australian motoring history, which is rapidly increasing in value.

The beginning of 1971 saw a new arrival on the Australian motoring scene. Described as “The most handsome car Chrysler has ever produced, and probably the best-looking car ever produced by an Australian manufacturer”, the iconic VH Valiant Charger was the ultimate combination of style-setting design and cutting-edge performance. The VH Valiant Charger achieved critical acclaim, winning the 1971 Australian Wheels Car of the Year Award. A sleek, yet aggressive body and a torquey 6-cylinder was a recipe for success, leading to the cars now-iconic status.
