1972 Valiant Charger

My ’72 Valiant Charger has been cloned into a ’71 Dodge Demon look alike….It has a 400 Chev motor with Dart Platinum 200 heads with all the bells & whistles, (built by Ivan Carstens). It runs a 350 Chev auto box with a new Dana limited slip diff. (3.73:1 ratio).  The front and rear suspension has been triangulated and seriously beefed up and includes strong custom drag tramp bars….IDEAL for big LAUNCHES!!!

Dynamat was laid throughout, before installing fresh black upholstery & carpets, all done by Mark Wahlberg from Steeledale. The custom chin spoiler was made & widened from a stock VW Golf 1 front spoiler by Bern van Gass. The fully functioning, back air wing was manufactured out of aluminum by Nic v/d Merwe. I managed to secure a 2nd trunk lid that has no wing, so I have the option of exchanging the rear trunk lid, giving it a different look in minutes.The back bumper has also been filled in & smoothed out.

A trick fan shroud was made by Bern. The custom stainless steel exhaust and side pipes were built by Tommy from TNT.  It rolls on 15” Weld Racing Pro-Star wheels.

I am considering an exchange of ratio in the rear, to something with longer legs.

An adapter plate was made to fit the Mopar valve covers on the Chevy heads. They have been painted Mopar orange as has the air cleaner cover.   (This has been done intentionally to invoke debate and discussion)
