Item description

There is nothing to do other than put the key in it and enjoy. Service and add Petrol for many years of cruising or use as the daily driver. Valerie since her complete update and overhaul of aged components now drives like a luxury car from the sixties should, and the power "The Regal" makes from the "Slant Six" makes cruising, short or long city commutes or highway touring a breeze. Always turning heads and with a cult following the Valiant's get the girls, go the longest distance and offer rarity over mass produced Fords or Holden's of the same era. Sigmund Freud states "intelligent people select green cars", well Valerie offers many shades. This a very early AP5 with the production numbers indicating first month of production, May 1963 and from the "Mile End" plant not "Tonsley Park" which makes her rare.The car has all the early and rare American features like LH wipers, LH K frame , firewall and some factory marks still alive and well.
