CHRYSLER’S FIRST Aus­tralian Valiant, launched in 1962 was based on its US coun­ter­part but beefed up to han­dle Aussie con­di­tions. The next-in-line ‘S’ Se­ries Valiant, used the same sheet metal and un­der­pin­nings, but with a re­vised grille, tail lights and up­graded brakes. It still had the 225ci slant six-cylin­der en­gine, which out­per­formed the Holden and Ford com­pe­ti­tion of the day.
