Valiant Charger E49 Big Tank
This particular Valiant Charger E49 is a 'Bathurst Special'. In order to qualify for racing at Bathurst, manufacturers had to sell a certain number of cars in order to pass the homologation requirements. The beautiful thing about race cars back then was you were able to buy on Monday what you watched race on Sunday. APOLOGY: Ed talks about the 6 Pack relating to the six cylinders when in actual fact he did say it relates to the triple dual barrel Weber carburettors. Our editor was consequently taken out the back and made to gargle two stroke while we whipped him with a fan belt for his sins. We will rectify this editing anomaly and offer our humblest apologies to Ed for making him sound like a goose. We owe you a case of fine lager Ed!
