  1. “The Chrysler 180 was quite a stylish car, and it remains a mystery why it failed so spectacularly in the UK”

    It DOES look like a big Avenger, so may have failed in a similar way to the Austin 3-litre looking like a big 1800.

  2. It looked like a big, stodgy Avenger. It drove like a big stodgy Avenger. It had nothing to recommend it in a market full of better cars in the 1600-2000cc class. Gone and thankfully almost forgotten.

  3. Vastly underrated and miles better than the truly abysmal Triumph 2000/2500…..

    Had the 180/2-Litre been marketed properly, e.g, Hillman and Humber, then it would probably have had more chance of succeeding.

  4. The basis of a great car existed here. As for the styling, the Australian Centura version, with a few minor tweaks transformed the look of the car.

  5. #3 “Vastly underrated and miles better than the truly abysmal Triumph 2000/2500…..”

    Which planet have you been living on? The Triumph 2000/2500 wiped the floor with the 180 and deservedly so. Stylish Michelotti exterior, upmarket wood dash interior, six cylinder engines, independent rear suspension. Against an inflated Avenger with a rough 4 cylinder engine and a live rear axle.

    Well, excuse me, but given the choice it would be a Triumph that I would choose to drive every time!

  6. It’s not a bad looking car, certainly of it’s time. The Mk1 Granada was a bit like an upscaled Mk3 Cortina and that didn’t seem to harm it’s image.

    I’d rather have a Triumph though!

  7. I had one of these cars, crashed it three times one night and it still got me away, only fit for scrap then,but it still started every time,
