DDA – 1/18 Scale – 1970 Chrysler VG Valiant Drag Car with Supercharger in Red Scale Model Replica
August 1970 saw the introduction of another facelifted version of the VE/VF bodystyle in the VG Valiant. The VG’s most noticeable difference was the use of rectangular headlamps instead of the traditional round ones (except VIP models, which used quad round headlamps). The guard-top indicator location was carried over from the VF. The grille was a horizontal, single-plane item, and the tail lamps were revised and wrapped around to the body side. Sedan, Wagon, Ute and Hardtop body styles were offered once again as well as the same luxury levels as before. The biggest announcement to come with the VG Valiant was of the all new Hemi-6 engine, replacing the Slant-6. The new engine was introduced as a 245 cu in (4.0L) unit with quasi-hemispherical combustion chambers.
The VG series Pacers were also the first and last to be offered in the Hardtop body style, of which three were optioned with the E31 package and three were optioned with the E35 package. No VG Pacer Hardtops were available with the E34 option. Due to Chrysler Australia’s policy (local content law/government law) of using only locally produced components, and the unavailability of a local four-speed gearbox, the Pacer was offered with only a three-speed floor shift manual transmission
