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!

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.
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
