Chrysler Valiant/Regal/VIP 1966-71

By 1968, the concept of an Aussie-made family V8 was well entrenched and Chrysler had to become creative in order to sell its eight-cylinder cars against Ford and Holden’s new offerings.

The VE-VG VIP exploited buyer snobbery but they didn’t sell well and are now very rare with cars in excellent condition almost never exceeding $30,000. VC V8s on the other hand almost never sell for less than $30,000 – except for this year when there were almost none for sale.

Best buys include Regal six-cylinder models at under $20,000 and V8 Regal Hardtops at $30-35,000.

Introduced in 1970, Chrysler’s six-cylinder ‘Hemi’ is among the best engines produced in this country, yet VG Valiants with this motor are generally cheaper than ‘Slant Six’ VE-VF models.
