Birth of a legend
through the newly released and extensively revised Hey Charger book, published by AMC’s Chrysler experts Gavin Farmer and Gary Bridger, one small item in particular caught our eye.
It’s a novel, in period, new arrival announcement placed in the ‘Hatches, Matches and Despatches’ classifieds of a New Zealand newspaper. It read, “VALIANT, On September 6, 1971 to Todd Motors – a new model – VH. Doing well. Many thanks.” Short and sweet! And very clever. Lots of wholesome reading goodness in the 250-page hard cover book. Readers from ‘Aussie’, as the Kiwis say, can source Hey Charger MkII from Gavin at ilingabooks@ chariot.net.au while New Zealanders should contact Gary at email@example.com
