In production : Chrysler Alpines at Ryton

Carole Nash Classic Insurance Specialists

The Anglicized version of the SIMCA 1307/1308 went into production at Ryton in 1976. This meant that Avenger production moved to Linwood in Scotland, and Hunter production went to Ireland. Engines for the Alpine were also produced in the UK, boosting local content to above 50 per cent.
