Item description

I am selling my pride and joy for the last 5 years, due to the fact that life is now catching up and need to make room. This is a 1979 valiant regal fully restored to its former glory and beauty with a couple of extra modifications to make the vehicle for driver friendly and efficient. The vehicle is a 245, 3 speed automatic column shift beauty with perfect interior. I have restored this vehicle over the last 5 years, with it being on the road for the last 2 years. mechanically this car is 100% perfect and i pride myself on this fact. Everything was done to the vehicle before i got it on the road, including upgrading the front brake systems to a Girlock caliper design, all bushes replaced on vehicle, new steering arms, new suspension, new ignition system, new rubber fuel lines, new fuel pump, all oils in vehicle changed, new radiator, new water pump, pacemaker extractors, 350cfm 2 barrel holley that has been dyno tuned for efficiency and ease, new 16 inch wheels with tyres that have only done 4000kms with a spare. No expense was spared and only the best has been done for this vehicle as it has been my beauty for 5 years. I am the 2nd owner of the vehicle and have full vehicle history, up to the point where it was parked in the shed in 1989 and left until 2011 when i found it. i also have 2 of the original carter carburetors, and original airbox with elb unit, as i bought a new carter for the vehicle, but didn't like the way it felt still, so i replaced it with a 350cfm 2 barrel holley for better driveability, with a k&n air filter always used. I also changed the ignition system as the elb system is truly rubbish. it has been replaced with a HEI full replacement system, including distributor, coilpack, larger sparkplugs, and new leads. Pacemaker headers with a 2.5 inch system for better flow. All of the things i have changed to the vehicle are to make it more driver friendly and fuel efficient, i have never had the idea of it being a powerhouse and has never been driven as such. I have reciepts for all parts and work done to the vehicle The interior is immaculate except for slight chewing on rear of passenger front seat as seen in pics. The carpet has been changed from the original teal green to a charcoal colour. The dash has no cracking and is regularly oiled and cleaned. The original radio still works with 1 speaker still connected, however i have installed an alpine headunit and 2 type s alpine speakers on the rear parcel shelf for more modern lifestyle. I replaced the original clock in the dash with an original Tacho out of a charger then re-calibrated before i put it in. Whilst the carpet was out the entire floor panel was cleaned and coated in sound deadener. Because the vehicle was undercover whilst dormant it had minimal rust in the rear passenger quarter panel at the bottom, which has been cut out a new piece fabricated and welded into place and coated internally in rust preventer and sound deadener. The rest of the vehicle had minimal surface rust which was removed when re-painted. The only downside of this vehicle is the paint. However it still looks great, as i am the one who painted it, i have never been happy with the result. It has slight cracking in places and 3 minor chips in it which i have taken photos of, and slight bubbling in the rear quarter panels. I also only recently found that the driver side skirting is rusting out. it is only superficial and an easy fix but i do not have the time or drive to fix it. I guarantee the buyer will not be disapointed in this vehicle. Feel free to contact me for anymore questions as there is most definitely something i have forgotten. Phone calls would be the quickest to get ahold of me, but as i work full time i may not pick up between 7am-5pm monday to friday. emails are also fine.
