Ironstone lane, Wroxton, Banbury. OX15 6AY

 

After great reviews at the London Adventure Travel Festival this is your chance

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!

Shahin, watch " Killer Elite", with De Niro, Statham, Clive Owen,

even a glimpse of the Ayatollah  :mrgreen:

You WILL enjoy the blue Arrow in that  ( and all the bizarre licence plates )

      ***************************************************

      Righto, shite fans of Norn Iron,

      A suggestion has been put forth that a mini-meet of sorts could be arranged for those of us perched atop this enchanted rock, to strengthen bonds and ogle at terrible, terrible cars about to be inflicted on some other poor bugger.

      Venue is: Ballyclare Car Auctions, Dennison Industrial Estate, Ballyclare BT39 9EB

      http://ballyclarecarauction.co.uk/

      Date is: Wednesday 8th August 2018, from 7pm onward

      http://autoshite.com/calendar/event/52-northern-ireland-mini-meet-ballyclare-auctions/

      Deep-fried items of varying degrees of danger are, apparently, available onsite for those who wish to test the strength of their stomach and other major organs.

      So pop along, in whatever vehicle you fancy, for a bit of craic and to participate in the ever-popular Crispiest Wheelarch Spotting Competition.

      I'll be there, I believe The_Equalizer will be there, and a few other expressions of interest have been indicated from local shiters.

      I may even be wearing my newly-arrived Autoshite t-shirt (courtesy of FilthyJohn) to aid recognition.

      Drop a line below if you reckon you fancy coming along!

      Dat.

      I have spoken to Lesley Cook who looks after the Hammond Microcar collection in Kent (TN12 postcode - between Headcorn and Staplehurst). The original owners founded the RUMcar register/forum.

      I have confirmed that up to 20 cars from us (quirkier the better she says!) will turn up on 12th May 1pm for a tour. The 20 car limit is due to only so much hard standing.

      Apparently there is a pub down the road for drink/food afterwards.

      This is a private collection, so we can only attend at this time and date unless you make your own separate arrangements.

      The charge is £3 a head, which I think is very fair. I will happily play banker (yes, banker) on the day.

      The limit is 20 cars, but up to 30-40 people. So please put your username below (and any other forum members who will be in the car with you).

      Who's all going to this, then?
      It's this Sunday. 17-Coffees and I have both got our cars entered into the show.
      That's a 2001 VW Golf Cabriolet, and a 1995 BMW 316i!
      I may even be doing a bit of auto-testing in the 316, could be fun.
       
       
      EDIT: Mr Coffees has not entered as there are too many 2001 VW Golf Cabriolets in existence, apparently. Oh well.
