SYDNEY – April 30, 2013: A simply stunning jet black with red interior 1962 S Series Chrysler Valiant sedan that has had more than $50,000 lavished on its total restoration is a standout vehicle of Shannons Sydney autumn classic Auction next Monday (May 6).

Starting with a straight, rust-free car with its odometer showing just 106,630 miles (believed genuine), the Valiant was torn-down and soda blasted to bare metal, before being re-painted in mirror-finish two-pack black.

At the same time, its interior was completely refreshed in contrasting red and grey vinyl, with an emphasis on factory original appearance.

All rubbers were replaced and the Valiant also received a disc brake conversion and upgraded suspension components, while modern wheel studs allowed the fitment of the 18 x 7-inch five-spoke mag wheels shod with 215/45 radial tyres.

A new radiator was fitted with driveline components all refurbished and detailed, while inside Vintage Air fitted air-conditioning and a modern sound system with iPod connectivity was added.

With receipts showing the cost of the Valiant’s transformation to be in excess of $50,000, Shannons are confident that what may well be Australia’s best S-Type Valiant will sell easily in its projected $24,000-$28,000 price range.

The Valiant is one of 25 car, 13 motorcycle and scooter and 20 garagenalia lots in Monday’s auction, which is being held at Shannons showroom at 65 Reserve Road, St.Leonards, from 7pm.

Thirty-eight lots, including all but one of the motorcycles, are being offered with no reserve.

All vehicles and garagenalia can be inspected over this weekend at Shannons from 9am to 4pm Saturday and 10am to 4pm Sunday.
