ALL CHRYSLER DAY WEEKEND 2015

“Fantastic Fours Amazing Eights”

1965 brought the beginning of a new era for Chrysler Australia and motoring in general.

The new AP6 V8 model introduced a luxurious family sedan with a lighter-weight, smoother, powerful and reliable, Australian-built 273ci V8 engine, the first available to the Australian motorist.

The 273 ‘small block’ was soon improved, to an efficient and reliable 318ci, a powerful 340ci 4-bbl and the ‘torque monster’ 360ci 2-bbl. The small-block V8’s have endured for 50 years as a performance and towing favourite with Chrysler fans, and through continued development, the latest modified ‘strokers’ can exceed 420ci and produce over 600HP!

Just as importantly, Chrysler expanded in 1965 from a predominantly 6-cylinder manufacturer, via the corporate acquisition of the UK-based Rootes Group, to offer a range of 4-cylinder economy sedans. This gave Chrysler access to Rootes’ full vehicle range, with the well-known names Hillman, Humber, Sunbeam, Singer and Commer vans and trucks, to be sold alongside Chryslers in the dealerships. The 4-cylinder Rootes-based vehicles were superseded in the 1970’s by the Mitsubishi-based Colt, Lancer, locally built Galant, Sigma and eventually the Magna.

The CCCSA is proud to celebrate the diversity of vehicles from all these manufacturers under the Chrysler banner, in this 50th year of awesome eights and fabulous fours!
