1978 Chrysler Valiant CL 4.0 Hemi from Australia and New Zealand


Reliable and comfortable


Cylinder Head was replaced just prior to the vehicle being traded. This was due to a large amount of use in a short period of time (3 years)

Radiator was replaced due to collision with a kangaroo.

General Comments:

Even though the car started to suffer major problems prior to trade in time (due to covering 200000 Km in approximately 3 years), it was generally a reliable vehicle. The motor had a tonne of guts and could reach speeds of up to 130 km/h with ease. All in all it was a great vehicle for the time, although it would chew the fuel due to the fitment of a 3 speed column shift transmission.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
