Good day,

A guy here in the states has a '64 Chrysler Valiant ute for sale. He
e-mailed a bunch of pictures . And from what I see a very straight and
original ute. has the 225 engine with auto trans. Has has a/c installed .
But it doesnt work now. Has a small dent in left rear panel and has 50,000
miles showing on speedo. Probably the only 1 in the US. He is asking 12,500
usd. Do you guys think about the value of it . He says could be driven
anywhere. Thanks in advance, Scott

That's 16 and a half grand in real money, and that would be an amazingly
high price here for such a vehicle. Especially for a 6 cylinder that doesn't
sound like it's in pristine condition.

A$1,500 will buy you a driveable / restorable example here. $10k
ought get a mint original or a good restoration. AP5's are probably
the rarest and hardest to get.

AP5 through to VC utes suffer badly from rust in the under tray area.
The degree of rust, or absence, would largely determine the price.

I'm one of the biggest valiant fans around, but that's probably 10 times
what it's worth, unless it comes with a porn starlet in the passenger
seat with a 5 year service contract.

You're absolutely right... according to Larry O'Toole (The Good Old
Aussie Ute).

There was no '64 Valiant ute. The AP6 ute was released in 1965, which
is the rare one -- only 2,000 built AFAIK.

VC utes were/are relatively common.

yeah , thats what i thought . i have seen utes with the AP5 front ends but i
was always sure they werent available like that .Always thought an earlier
S or R type ute would have been cool too, The rear fins lend themselves
nicely for a very stylised look similar to an early ElCamino or Ranchero .

Thanks for the info. This one has no rust. the owner sent some pretty
extensive pictures while the ute was on the lift during a trans rebuild.
Still looks like too much money , even for its originality. Thank again .
