Chrysler Alpine and Simca 1307/8
Developed from the Simca 1100, the Chrysler-Simca 1307 was launched as the 1307 in 1975 with a 1294cc engine. Body design was by Roy Axe . In Britain it was sold as the Chrysler Alpine, and was available as 1300 and 1500 (1442cc engines). European markets received the 1500 as the Chrysler-Simca 1308. Voted 'Car of the Year 1976', the 1307/8 European sales were good. Chrysler pulled out of Europe and Peugeot took over the ailing Simca and Rootes group from 1979 rebranding all cars as 'Talbot'
