Chrysler Valiant enthusiasts here is a great example of the classic VF VIP.
Very clean and tidy (as per the photos), runs great and presents beautifully for age.
Desirable, sought after car, will be keenly sought.
The VF series Chrysler VIP was introduced in May 1969 and was marketed as the “VIP by Chrysler?”, without the Valiant name. It was intended to fill a gap in Chrysler Australia’s lineup between the Chrysler Valiant and the Dodge Phoenix and it would compete directly against two other Australian designed luxury vehicles, the Ford Fairlane and the Holden Brougham. Although based on the VF series Chrysler Valiant, the VIP had a wheelbase which was 100mm longer at 2850mm. It was also bigger, more expensive and more luxurious than the older model. Visual differences when compared to the VF Valiant sedan included four headlights rather than two, different rear lights, a unique rear window and a heavily padded vinyl roof. Unlike its predecessor, the VF VIP was available only as a 4 door sedan.
The VIP was offered with the buyer’s choice of a 225 cu in (3.7 L) Slant-6 or a 318 cu in (5.2 L) “Fireball”? LA-series V8 engine. Chrysler’s Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission was standard equipment with either engine. Coaxial power steering and front disc brakes were optional with the six and standard with the V8
