From 1971 to 1974, the New Zealand Avengers were built at the Todd Plant at Petone, Wellington. Production moved to the newly built Todd Park Car Assembly Plant (above picture) between 1974 and 1981 in Porirua, Wellington. Using CKD parts from the UK. Alongside the Avenger on the same production line were various Rootes/Chrysler UK products (Hunter, Imp, Alpine), 1970s Mirage, Sigma and Lancer from Chrysler’s Japanese partner Mitsubishi.
