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!)

      • It looks very original to me too.. Don't often see these around, but I think that was a factory colour.
