    WOW!!! Where the heck did you find that, Huggy? A cool aside during a rainy Saturday, thanks man!

    I can't remember that car either and I though I knew all things "Mopar"...well, not sure the Chrysler Cricket, peep/peep (weak/weak, cheap/cheap...or whatever that chirping sound was in the ad) really counts :eek:

    the 1972 line up came up from a local mopar club on my facebook....was looking through it and WTF----a cricket???

    then saw it was 71-72 and came in High Impact colors.......

    i believe a 426 hemi was an option for 71----find that car and you will find the Plymouth Holy Grail

    I think the cricket was an Avenger from England or Brazil probably England rebadged and the colt I'm sure was a Mitsubishi

    In the UK it was called the Hillman Avenger. Not a brilliant car but they did build a Hillman Avenger Tiger. 1725cc Holbay tuned engine with twin 40 DCOE webers. They put that engine in the Hillman Hunter GLS which I really wanted back in the day. I looked at quite a few back in 1980 and they were all rotten even then. I ended up with a MK1 3000 GXL Ford Capri. The UK muscle car of its day

    I wonder if they suffered the same ordering process on those as some of us did on the Hellcat?
