An Aussie Favourite - Valiant S-Series
Photographed in September 2018 in Palmer, South Australia
Officially called the SV1, the S-Series was produced in Australia from March 1962 until April 1963 by Chrysler Australia.
Released just 10 weeks after it's predecessor (the R-Series) the S-Series was basically a US design assembled in Australia.
The S-Series had a smoother boot lid thanthe R, which featured a false spare wheel well (a la Chrysler 300).
The engine was the legendary "Slant 6" of 225ci capacity, mated to either a 3-speed column shifted manual or a push-button 3-speed automatic.
10,009 S-Series were built. This is the last one. (Just kidding!)
