I am looking for one of the following valiant charger models:
VH R/T E37
VH R/T E38
VH R/T E48
VH R/T E49
VH S/E E55.
I am looking for a car that is in poor condition to suit restoration as I don’t have much money to spend. It would be better with motor and gearbox, even if they don’t work. Must be a genuine car. Preferably in Victoria. Thank you.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hey ummm guys... First of all, I will pay you if you find any Charger in any condition under $500! Keep your eye on the Chargers (as I have) and you will come to know that it is impossible. Second of all, this is a survey site probably designed for comments about the Charger, not a free advertisement site such as carsales so please keep it that way, according to me, this is a waste of time of your own and others.
Have a nice day.
I got a hub cap you can have for $500 ;) :P.
I'm not advertising anything, and occasionally, if you're lucky, Chargers do come up for less than $500
OK, I'm not having a go at you, but I am dead set serious, this is my email address : Hey_Charger_75@hotmail.com
Let me know once you find a Charger for $500 or under.
Of course you can get a Charger for under $500. But you'll have to go to your local model shop. Real ones for that sort of money simply and categorically do not exist.
Thank-you and argument settled :)
Well, I am doing up a VH Valiant Charger, and I can tell you that you might be lucky to get a column to go into the car for $500
Not just that, but there are a set of R/T trumpet horns going for $750, I mean the prices are getting rediculous, but that's all you would expect from a great Aussie legend, and my advice if you got a Charger, the smart ones will keep em, but if they do want to sell em, they go for more than most new cars these days, unless your selling a wheel or a panel or something.
Hello everyone. I'm looking at buying a valiant charger VJ. its color is go green. the owner says that it is one of only 6 left that originally came in this color. can anyone tell me if this is true? and dose anone now how many were originally made in this color? thanks for your help.
Again, this is a survey site, where you post comments about the car, not just a place where you can put up free ads!
In comparing a Charger and a GT HO, I prefer my 1971 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3...
Most are worth $15,000 today and could do 144MPH, 0-60 in 5.7 seconds, quarter mile in 14.1 seconds - all this at a weight of 4000 pounds.
Air suspension was standard, it was mechanically fuel injected, had electric everything, air conditioning, leather interior, walnut wood.
Those two cars never matched the comfort offered by the Benz at 100 MPH.
People just don't know enough about them, and this keeps their value low.
Does anyone know how many e37 chargers were made? stats, and did they race at bathurst? You here a lot about the e38 and e49 but the e37 seems to get overlooked. cheers!
P.s. I bought my charger for $500, it is possible :)
See!! I told you you could get a charger for $500. 6 or so months ago a guy on ebay had 3 for sale (separate sale) 2 of them were $300, the other was $200. they didn't even get one bid.
They were in pretty bad condition though, cracked chassis rails, rusted throughout ect.
Hahaha.. I think you bought your charger for $500 back in the 80's or 90's?
Have a look at this Charger. Just sold a couple of weeks ago for $355. Auction ended on the 16th of July 2007.
The item number is 200127355123. It should still come up on eBay.
It's a VJ base model. No engine. Bad rust. But it's still a Charger.
There's the proof. You can still get a Charger for under $500.
Yeah... what the hell you gonna do with it?
What the hell do you think I would do with it??? if I bought that car, my plan would be to restore it.
In case you didn't realise, I said you could still get a charger for under $500. I didn't say a restored master piece. a show car that's had $30,000 spent on it. maybe you thought I meant a genuine, original condition e49 for under $500?
Mate, all I said was that you could still get a charger for under $500. I did say I wanted one in need of restoration.
This is exactly the kind of car I was talking about.
Its still a charger, no matter what condition its in, so I am right. a charger for under $500 is still possible, even in this day and age.
...or to be more precise, the REMAINS of a Charger...
The Valiant Charger E49 is a wonderful, timeless classic. I have owned one since 1979 and used it as my daily driver until about 1985. On the strip, I have got 14.0 at 101.5 mph without any preparation, with a 3.23 diff and cheesy '70s tyres. That's only.6 sec and 2 mph slower than my current 252kw BMW E46 M3 (same driver, same strip). So much for 30 years progress, eh.
Chargers (stock 770s and E49s) were pretty much unbeatable here in NZ on the track in their respective standard production classes as long as they were eligible.
Hey guys I just bought a VJ charger and I was just wondering if some one could give me some stock horse power figures for the 245, 265 and the e49 please??
From memory it's 160hp for the 245. The 265 had either 203 hp, or 218 for the base model RT. And the e49 had 302hp.
Torque is something like 355 nm for the 265, and about 420-450nm for the e49, but I'm not too sure.
Selling a 76 770 charger very soon, in paint shop at moment this car is a real minter all original 'all papers etc I am interested to know what could be worth.
I bought an E48 about five years ago for $2000. Would anyone know what it is worth now?
Could anyone give me some usable advice on how to refit the small fuel tank filler tube into the VH Charger. It seems to not go into the boot lock box section without modifications to either the panel work or the filler tube. I've spent hours trying to wriggle it back in.
There was no four door car faster than the e49 charger in the world.
As the owner of a 12 sec street Charger (running a SB V8), I'd like to see some comments clarified.
1st - The 265 CUI Hemi 6 Pack E49 Charger was the fastest ACCELERATING 6 cylinder car in the world until the release of the Porsche Turbo. Even a 1968 E Type Jag 4.2 had a higher top speed, mainly due to weight and gearing.
2nd - Gearing - The E49 was tested using a 3.5 diff ratio, when it recorded the 14.1 qtr. The GT-HO boys have complained for years about this, as the GTHO was tested with a lower gear set (3.2 I believe)
3rd - Alan Moffat once told me at a function - "The Chargers handled well - but Bathurst was really a track for V8s"
The GTR-XU1 proved him wrong, but his point was the Hemi 6 didn't have the legs on the long straights... which is perfectly understandable.
Leo Leonard in NZ also proved how much better in the handling stakes the Charger was over the Ford - completely demolishing Moffats campaign over there one year.
4th - Moffat also told me - the Phase 3 had 161 MPH showing at the bottom of Conrod straight - His Boss Mustang was reading 172 MPH on the same part of the track.
This just shows how a race prepped engine performs so much differently to what the road tests show us in their road going cousins.
Let's not forget though, that the Charger occupied three places in the top 10 in 1972 at Bathurst, so it was no "wood duck". Chrysler had two years to get it there - Ford had 5 years to get a Falcon on the podium, from 1967.
Both cars are Australian icons - the GTHO because of Bathurst success, the Charger because of its engineering, looks and marketing.
