Chrysler Valiant/Regal 1971-81

Chrysler revealed its biggest-ever Valiant in 1971 and within two years was getting hammered in the sales charts because people were worried about the cars’ bulk and how much fuel they would use.

Even today the stigma sticks and it is possible to buy a decent 3.5-litre Ranger for under $10,000 or a 4.0-litre Regal at $5000 more. Late CLs and the final-edition CM drastically improved Valiant handling and these are good to drive while only costing only a little more than 1971-77 models.

| Buyer's Guide: 1973-1975 Chrysler Valiant VJ Charger 340

VH-VJ Regal two doors and CH-CK Hardtops are very rare and both maintain values above $40,000. Conversely, four-door Chryslers with ‘360’ engines are relatively cheap and currently sell at less than $25,000.
