1971 VH Valiant Charger R/T E38 Big Tank ... $220,000

Genuine and rare, 1 of only 224 E38 Big Tank R/T Chargers ever made. Factory Bathurst Big Tank Charger in hero Hemi Orange colour with original T1 Tan trim.

To add to its uniqueness, this E38 is one of the first 100 built and has the J82 option which deletes the quarter vent windows in the doors and adds the opening rear louvre windows, which is extremely rare in a VH Charger. The change in ventilation was designed for improved distribution of airflow for the racetrack.

The E38/E49s were successful as race cars and now widely recognised as one of the sexiest Australian cars ever built (according to Wheels Magazine).

Current owner for 15 years. Bare metal rotisserie restored approximately 20 years ago and still in spectacular condition. Running the famous high compression 265ci Hemi headed six cylinder engine fed by those amazing triple Weber carbies. Engine runs superb with Webers fully restored and tuned.
