additional comments = This car was one of four R Series Valiants that the R & S Valiant Car Club of Victoria recovered from a shed in Rochester( north of Bendigo Victoria ) in 2001.It was sitting in a disassembled and incomplete state in that shed along with the three others for many years.

When purchased it was only an empty shell and came with seats , door trims , dash panel , steering wheel, steering box and four wheels. There was rust to repair in both sills , A pillars , rear quarters, doors and guards. A new floor was also required.The good thing about the car is that it absolutely straight and a genuine auto body.

Since purchasing the car all NOS trim ,emblems , instruments , lenses , anodised aluminium , grille , chromed castings etc have been sourced from the USA. It will be repainted in Gambier Blue and restored to standard ex- factory condition. The car will have full registration with original Victorian number plates.

An original R engine has been sourced and will be fitted to the car.Original Australian accesories will be fitted.
