VJ V8 BIG Tank Charger 1973 Great CAR With NEW Parts Chrysler Valiant Gold Coast in Richmond-Tweed, NSW for sale
Our Charger is in good / very good condition overall. with a straight mainly rust free body. No hidden crashes or dodgy repairs. It was a factory Hemi 6 car. but the previous owner changed it to V8. When looking at the car. you would think that it was a factory Sports V8 Charger. We have replaced the first V8 engine with a great running 318ci engine with 4bbl Holley and Edelbrock manifold. The 904 auto has now been replaced with a shift kitted 727 torqueflite. The radiator is 3 core. and is in good condition. Electronic ignition. 55amp alternator. Heater does work. and a reconditioned heater core is included. The engine runs very smooth. Twin exhausts.
The interior is in great condition. The 2 front seats are in great condition and still have the original vinyl. The rear seats are from a VH R/T Charger we had years ago. The dash pad is black and uncracked. Factory 770 Sports tacho. and the previous owner modified the factory console. and fitted speakers. oil. volts and other gauges. There are more switches. but I don't know where they go. The console looks awesome. The carpet is in good condition. and so are the door trims. There is a tape deck. CD player and 6 speakers. The black steering wheel is in great condition. but there is a brand new 3 spoke steering wheel to go with the Charger. The interior is complete including arm rest pads and bases. The roof lining is velour. but has sagged.
We spent over $2500 fitting a 170 litre stainless big tank in the boot. Baffled. this tank is suitable for racing. The tank is secured by about 10 mounts. Twin fillers with flip top fuel caps. The tank needs a polish. but will be good for show and shine competitions. The original tank has been removed. as we had intentions to fit the spare wheel underneath the floor. The rims are factory W32 steel rims. 2 of them a 7 inches wide. The brakes work. but need to be bled properly.
The body is straight. A small amount of rust has appeared. but the rust is minor. The car has been stored undercover. The bottom of both the front and rear screens look to be rust free. The rust I can see is on the top of the LH A pillar. the bottom of the LH door. and a small spot on the LH rear 1/4 panel. There has been a repair on the RH boot floor. The sills. and underneath look good. The front and rear bumpers are straight. The car has a VJ 770 Sports grill. The front indicator bezels are Chrome from a VK. The bonnet and guards have been replaced as they were in very good condition. The Charger has not been involved in a crash. The car was previously resprayed in a burgundy metallic. The engine bay is still that colour. The previous owner was going to respray the car again for some reason. The dovetail moulds are fitted.
Included with this car is about $3000 worth of brand new spares. The photos show most of the parts. including
New 3 spoke steering wheel $600New left and right outside door handles $195Front and rear urethane suspension $500New washer bottle $80New heater core $250Seat belts $200NOS external mirror $150Scuff plates $200Brake shoes. pads. springs $150Badges and other boxes $200Master cylinder overhaul kit $65Mopar Performance filter and Timing cover bolt kit $90Assorted rubbers $300Factory rim paint $50Battery tray $50More parts to be found. and there are some s/h parts in the boot.

It can be resprayed in any colour you want.
It can easily be made to look like a R/T Big Tank ChargerThis Charger already has the 'WOW' factor with the polished big tankThe interior is in great condition. and the console is 1 of a kind. Well thought through
