Additional comments = My Parents bought an S Series (Gambier Blue)in 1962 and I have loved the shape and design of the car ever since. Last year we had the chance to buy an S Series, Torgue Flite. The colour was a dark blue, this was the start of a re-restoration.
There was a lot of rust and rework that had to be corrected. After many hours of extra labour and dollars the Valiant has won awards. On the road it drives really well.
