Among the Avengers

Hillman Hunters & Hillman Avengers at the Rootes Ryton plant. The factory was originally constructed by the Rootes Group in 1940 to build aircraft engines during the WW2. After the war it became the headquarters of Rootes. Chrysler (who acquired Rootes in 1967) sold the plant for a symbolic $1.00 to PSA Peugeot Citro├źn in 1978.
