Some of these historic local Chryslers have done well while others have languished behind their Holden and Ford equivalents.

Chrysler AP6-VC V8, VF-VH Hardtop, Chrysler – market review
Chrysler Valiant VF Hardtop.

The cars regarded as Australia's first family V8s aren't generating anywhere near the price growth enjoyed by early V8 Holdens and Fords.

A few years back VC V8s prices were approaching $40,000 but cars being sold now are largely in the sub-$30,000 range.

The news for VF-VG Hardtop owners is better with average prices for their cars up substantially and excellent V8 Regals worth $30,000.

The massive CH-CK Chryslers often came with 5.9-litre engines and needed every cubic centimetre to move them.

Today these cars are enjoying a surge in both price and popularity and two-door versions are heading for $30,000.
