The Charger has now been sold but thanks for the favorable comments.
Just for clarification in response to some comments received we are fully aware this was not a Hemi motor and never claimed it to be.As mentioned in the video it is the decals only that follow in the style of the RT-which of course had the Hemi motor!

Chrysler Valiant Charger
The Chrysler Valiant Charger is a muscle car introduced by Chrysler
Australia in 1971. It was a short wheelbase two door coupe based on the
concurrent Australian Chrysler Valiant sedan. Introduced within the VH
Valiant range of cars, it continued as a variant through the subsequent VJ,
VK and CL series, until ceasing production in 1978.
The Charger was extraordinarily popular in Australia during the VH series
and proved to be similarly so in New Zealand where they were assembled from
imported kit components. The VH Valiant Charger achieved critical acclaim
too, winning the 1971 Australian Wheels Car of the Year Award.
However, the very real 'muscle' persona of the Charger quickly faded
through the VJ range of cars and was effectively neutered altogether by the
time of the VK series release in 1975. During its seven years of
production, the Charger carried many variations of essentially two basic
powerplants, based around the Hemi 6 and versions of the V8 Chrysler LA
7 Second Australian 1972 Valiant Charger
Not a car you see in the US that often, John Faraone's 4200lbs 572ci Twin
88mm turbo powered 1972 Valiant Charger
layed down some serious passes on Drag Week, especially the last day when
he overcame some tuning issues and broke into the 7's! We love seeing
people come from overseas to enjoy this insane event, especially when they
come from the opposite side of the world!

265 Hemi Six Dyno Tests @ COME Racing - Triple Webers and Megasquirt
Brett, Sam, Ads and Shane Dynotest Bretts 265 Chrysler
Valiant Hemi Six Cylinder engine with a Custom Megasquirt Fuel Injection
& Crank Fired Coilpack Ignition system on Sam's Engine Dyno.
It made about 300 Hp (Ok, 297) with lots more tuning to do in the car, but
ran very well with even the limited amount of tuning time we had on the Dyno. Tested with the
Weber Carbs as a Baseline, then the Megasquirt Injection to compare. The
O2 Based AutoTune function is Great ! We had it dialled in to the Ballpark
Map with about 10 minutes work.... Later in the car.. we will "engage" the
Nitrous System ! :)
Looking Forward to getting it in the Charger and having some more time to

Reaction time is abit off: 0.422 and he got off the throttle 1/2 second
early. This is a new engine combo so this was pretty much testing :)

1968 Charger / 1969 Daytona - /BIG MUSCLE Garage
The 1968 Dodge Charger and the 1969 Dodge Daytona. Two cars based off the
same platform with very different personalities. These two old sleds are
different though, 'cause well, they belong to me (your host) and they're
the reason that BIG MUSCLE exists today. These are not show ponies,
cruisers or weekend projects, but two warhorses that have been run in some
of the toughest long distance and performance events in the United States.
Built for reliability, power and performance, they are not technological
marvels, but old school resto-mods that have been updated for one reason
and one reason only - to put smiles on the faces of all those who see them.
