Very tidy and well-kept VC Valiant: great affordable Aussie classic

The VC Valiant heralded in "bold new" look, with deep-set bumpers, recessed indicators and an overall lower and sleeker silhouette; despite the bare bones being carried over from the preceding AP5/AP6.

The trusty slant-six engines were carried over, although now smoother and more refined and economical; an all-synchro three-speed gearbox was also amongst the big news. The V8 enjoyed a short stint as the only Aussie family sedan with a V8 on the market, but Ford soon followed through with the Fairlane 500 and XR Falcon, and Holden’s Chevrolet-sourced 5.0lt V8.

Still, the VC Valiant was a pretty convincing package; with newly standard features like windscreen washers, fresh air ventilation, armrests front and back, reversing lights, and increased dash padding.

 This 1967 VC Valiant look like a neat Aussie family classic, and won’t break the bank.

It’s fitted with the reliable 225ci slant-six and three-speed automatic transmission.

The six-seater interior (engineered with seatbelts) has been reupholstered in velour, and the exterior presents very well with good paint and chrome.

Some aftermarket touches include period mag wheels and a modern CD/MP3 player.

It looks to be in good solid nick all round and seems like a pretty good buy, listed at $19,950.

The car is based in Queensland and you can check out the full listing here!
