Arriving in 1971, the VH Chrysler Valiant was the first series of the fourth-generation – and was the first all-Australian Valiant.

Larger than the preceding VG, the car lifted various styling cues from our American cousins and seemingly offered a car for every demand.

The VH was available in sedan, coupe and station wagon form in a variety of trim levels – as well as performance offshoot models such as the Pacer and Charger.

The VH similarly gave birth to various collectible heroes – notably the "six-pack" E38s and E49s.

Over the entire production life cycle, Chrysler Australia produced 67,800 VH Valiant cars.

This 1972 VH Valiant station wagon presents as factory, in high-spec Regal trim and reported matching-numbers with the original 265ci Hemi six-cylinder and column-shift automatic.

The car is apparently completely unrestored and presents in "survivor" condition. Specified in Smoke Blue over black trim, the car was originally delivered to Chadstone Chrysler here in Melbourne.

With period ROH five-slot mag wheels and redwall tyres, the car currently bears 103,000 miles with log books, full service history and owner’s manual.

The car has recently undergone a full service and features four new Koni shocks, exhaust, front end disk brakes and a slew of new-old-stock panels and trim.

It looks like an awesome useable cruiser as is or, if you’re chasing originality, could be the perfect base for a rolling resto.

The car is listed for $16,500 and is based in Melbourne.
