1973 VJ Valiant Charger!

Hey guys,

Here's my latest toy/project which is to be done up to be a daily driver. I purchased it from a wreckers in Sunshine, had a beat up 265 Hemi now has a 265 Hemi which was pulled out of a Regal which has only done 56,000km! Runs like a song. Body work will be a bitch but looking forward to getting stuck into it!

Cool car to rebuild,what you doin with the seats,dont see many valliant chargers on the roads these days.
The chain in those handcuffs is high-tensile steel, it'll take you ten minutes to hack through it with this, now if your lucky ? you can hack through your ankle in five minutes. Go !

Looks like a lot of body work will be needed to return it to glory. i owned a 73 myself about 15 years ago. it was a rolling wreck, but the 265 just kept going and going, even thought it leaked oil like a sieve.
