Royal Agricultural Show

The good old Hillman Hunter became "Chrysler Hunter" by the end of its life, some 10 years after Chrysler bought Rootes Group. Chrysler throw everything at the car then, the GLS front grille, newer bumpers and updated interior, it was the last attempt trying to sale even more of the decade old platform. Shortly after though, Chrysler sold Rootes to Peugeot and that was the last chapter of once the 3rd largest car maker in the UK.

I would love to know how many of these Chrysler Hunter they managed to sell. But if their target customers were at this agricultural show in Kenilworth, then the answer is not too many!

    My dad had a 1979 model identical to the red one in that brochure.
