The early models (1960 - 1975) of the Chrysler Valiant had bench seats front and back, meaning six people could ride along in comfort. To meet today's far more rigorous standards, the Chrysler Valiants no longer feature lap-sash seat belts in the front.
The price spectrum reflects the levels of care and customisation given to individual Chrysler Valiants over the years. For example, a 1970 Chrysler Valiant Pacer is available for $54,990, while a 1979 three-speed column shift is priced at $5,000 on Gumtree.
A 1966 Chrysler Valiant has a theoretical top speed of 164 km/h. While this is comparable to the pace and performance of modern cars, the Chrysler Valiant is of an era when automotive safety features were virtually non-existent.
Given the age of even the youngest Chrysler Valiant, no towing capability figures are available. This is also the case for its locally produced competitors of the period, such as the high selling Holden Kingswood and Ford Falcon models.
While initial models were imported from the USA, the Chrysler Valiant was manufactured in Australia from 1963 to 1981. So given this age range, the reliability of any vehicle depends on the upkeep and attention previous owners have given it.
