The French Connection

In the world of Arrow series it can't get anymore bizarre than this! Instead of using the Rootes 1725cc engine Chrysler installed the 1600 from the Peugeot 404 in order to comply with local content requirements in South Africa (other reports suggests they used the 2.0L engine from the Peugeot 504 on post 74 models).

According to the advert they had three model range: Hunter, Vogue & Safari. The above 1972 Hillman Vogue example was recently sold in Cape Town.

  1. What did the HILLMAN badge on the front guard look like? maybe the answer to Matt's badge query.
