SPOT­TED re­cently at Syd­ney Drag­way was the tough-as-nails VE Valiant of Vic­tor Bar­a­los. The 1967 sedan is fit­ted with a scream­ing as­pi­rated 418ci Mopar small-block. The en­gine utilises an R3 block with Di­a­mond pis­tons, K1 rods, 15:1 com­pres­sion, Comp Cams solid-roller cam, W8 cylin­der heads (99 cast­ings), Mopar 520 in­take man­i­fold, Fer­rea valves, Weber belt drive and a 1095 E85 carb by Eric Neifert in the USA.

The 8000rpm com­bi­na­tion is show­ing 800hp and has run a best of 9.79@136mph in as­pi­rated trim on a 235 ra­dial.

We’ll have a fea­ture on the car soon!
