Hand

SN saw an inflatable hand in the “Cultural” Centre. It could have a small bar inside or be a warning that the stop and search laws will be extended to include areas “beyond the ringhole”. I have no opinion. It arouses neither rage nor pleasure.

    It’s almost a perfect version of ‘the shocker’! Though i’m sure it could be modified quite easily.

            Was that a typo? Don’t you mean a “318″?
            They were the 5.2 litre V8 available in the VF and VG Valiants…the only one smaller was the 273 c.i. (4.5 L, for those who deal only in dollars and cents), which debuted in 1965 in the Valiant Regal AP6 as the first domestically designed car with eight cylinders, the first shot in a power war amongst the Big Three, culminating with the “Supercar Scare”of 1972 with the stillborn XA GTHO Phase IV Falcon and the similarly-cancelled Torana LJ V8 GTR-XU2.

              Ah… Fond memories…my 1980 CM Valiant (with Mitsubishi compliance plates) had the 265 Hemi. Damn that girl could go… even witht the impediment of the clunky 3 speed Manual.

                Was that a three-on-the-tree manual? Weren’t they a lot of fun?

                My Mum had a green ’75 LH Torana with the 2.85 L (a.k.a. 173) red motor six…what a pig that would’ve been to drive, with the front bench seat, power nothing (maybe except the brakes) and drums all round. And to add insult to injury, the thing had a severe case of tinworm to boot. They sure don’t build ’em like they used to, and thank [insert deity of choice] for that!

                No wonder why Mum has refused to drive manuals in the last near-on quarter of a century…at least the last one she had wasn’t too bad at all: a ’76 TD Cortina XLE paired with a pre-27A emissions 2 litre, which had the smooth-shifting four-on-the-floor also found in later Escorts with the same engine.

          Not trying to compete with Bo’T here, but the 265 was a hemi six, (and came with triple weber side -draught carbies on the E38 and E49 chargers). The slant six is a 225CI used until the 1969 VF Valiant.

            That’s correct. The 3.7 L slant six was found on the very first Valiants, the R Series (the one with the false wheel cover on the bootlid) of 1962, until the VF, as you’ve mentioned. The first hemis were the 245 c.i. (4.0 L) motors that first appeared in the VG of 1970, whereas the unlamented low-compression 215/3.5 L Hemi (as seen in the base sedans and Dodge utes, of which my Dad has had two of them) and the venerated 265 (4.3 L) debuted in the all-new VH model (which of course was the series that introduced the Charger) in 1971, the latter which in turn became the engine of choice for performance-optioned packages like the Pacer sedan and the E37, E38 and E49 Chargers(the E55 was a 340 c.i./5.6 L V8 and the later E48 six was more-or-less stock). Very cool range of vehicles they had back in the early-to-mid 70s…even Lucky Grills’ red VK Valiant Regal (as seen in Bluey/Bargearse) was rather swanky too.
