This car was marketed in the UK where it was manufactured by the Rootes Group, a division of Chrysler as the Hillman Avenger, Rootes was a Chrysler 100% owned subsidiary since 1967. They spent a lot of money on this commercial to give the illusion that the car was manufactured by Chrysler in the USA. They had to fly Mr. Godfrey into the UK to get him into one of these cars on the assembly line. These were also produced and sold in Argentina as the Dodge 15001`.Chrysler would actually end up manufacturing these cars besides thr Chrysler UK in Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, New Zealand and Iran. It's tools and dyes were sold to VW who built in the VW1500 until 1988. There was even a ute version sold in Columbia for a few years.
