If this car shapes up as well as it looks in the photos, you'd have to rate it as an increasingly rare survivor.

Chrysler ran with the VG Valiant series from 1970 to 1971, producing a relatively modest 53,000. That included sedans, wagons, utes and coupes.

Four engines were on offer: three straight sixes up to 245ci (4.0lt) and a 318ci (5.2lt) V8. Transmissions were a choice of three-speed manual or auto.

Essentially the VG was an upgrade model from the VF, with the easiest identifier being the switch from round to rectangular headlights.

We'd argue this Regal coupe has the engine you want - the 245ci Hemi six, which had plenty of go without weighing down the nose of the car. It's also running an auto.

There's no rego or RWC, and the owner is offering VGCOUP Vic plates seperately. It's priced at $25,000.
