Bearing in mind how many different badges the Arrow was sold under wouldn't it be fitting to have the film available under all media platforms? I'm thinking VHS, beta, DVD. Blue Ray Video 2000 and laserdisc.

Can you name how many marques the Arrows were sold under?

 

I'm no expert, but I believe that in the UK, they were sold as:

  • Hillman (Minx and Hunter, 1966-1976);
  • Singer (Gazelle and Vogue, 1966-1970);
  • Sunbeam (Vogue, 1970-1971); 
  • Humber (Sceptre, 1967-1976) and then
  • Chrysler (Hunter, 1976-1979). 

In mainland Europe and North America, the Sunbeam marque was used on most Arrows, because this was the best-known Rootes marque overseas. A mixture of model names and trim levels were used in different countries under the Sunbeam name (Minx, Hunter, Vogue, Arrow).

 

In Australia, the car was sold as:

  • Hillman - HB Range (Arrow and Hunter, 1967-1968) - same as UK models (CKD kits)
  • Hillman - HC Range (Hunter and Hunter Royal, 1968-1970) - some different features to UK models
  • Hunter - HE Range [as a marque in its own right] (Royal, GT, Hustler, 1970-1972) - unique rear lights and other trim

In New Zealand, the car was sold as:

  • Hillman (Hunter, 1967-1970)
  • Singer (Vogue, 1967-1971)
  • Hillman by Chrysler (1970-1979)

In South Africa, the car was sold as:

  • Hillman (Hunter, Arrow, Vogue, 1968-1976) - using 1618cc Peugeot XC engine, from the 404
  • Chrysler (Vogue 2000, 1976-1977) - using 1971cc Peugeot XN1 engine, from the 504
  • Dodge (Husky pick-up, 1976-?) - unique pick-up body, using Rootes 1725cc engine

And, of course, the Paykan.

 

As far as I know, the Paykan utility pick-up (Bardo 1600i) used a different body to the South African version.

 

Hope this is some use as a starting point anyway!
