Chrysler Royal/Valiant/Regal 1957-1966

R Series Valiants have galloped past $30,000 and we suspect that any outstanding, original car to reach the market might bring $40K.

If you want the R Series shape but at half the price, 1962-63 S Series are more common and remain steady in the $15-20,000 range.

Switch your interest to the longer, broader AP5-AP6 and cost drops even further. Basic 225 versions in good condition are around $15,000, with excellent six-cylinder Regals at $20-24,000.

These were the first Valiants offered as a station wagon or utility and those cost around the same as sedans.

V8 AP6s were Australia’s first ‘family supercar’ and authentic survivors cost $35-40,000. The Royal offers 1950s style for similar money to a Valiant.

Royal Sedan $18,650 [5] 

R Series $35,000 [2] 

S Series $19,125 [16]

AP5-AP6 $15,500 [33]
