Chrysler Europe came into being in 1967, encompassing the Rootes Group brands in the UK including Hillman, Humber, Singer, Sunbeam and Commer. Apart from the 180/2 Litre, UK cars were not badged as Chryslers until 1976 when the distinctive ‘Pentastar’ logo found its way onto the existing Avenger, and Hunter, as well as the new Sunbeam, Horizon and Alpine.
Chrysler Europe was taken over by PSA Peugeot Citroën in 1978 when all models were rebadged as Talbots in the UK. Despite the brand’s short life in the UK, the cars proved quite popular and well regarded (with the Alpine winning European Car of The Year in 1976). Unfortunately, like many other cars from the 70s, they were not known for their rust resistance and whilst they were once a common piece of ‘street furniture’ very few survive today. Thankfully their memory lives on with this retro t-shirt.
The t-shirt features a distressed style logo for that retro look and is available in a number of colours.
