This large saloon, more commonly known as the 180, was also sold as a Chrysler-Simca and, after the PSA Group’s takeover of its maker, a Talbot. Yes, it was bad, but hey, its successor, the Tagora was worse.
Chrysler Hunter (1976-1979)
Another Chrysler. Well, shall we just call it a Rootes Group car? The Hunter is probably the most badge-engineered car in history, having been sold at various points throughout its life under the Chrysler, Dodge, Hillman, Paykan, Singer and Sunbeam marques, and with each of those having a plethora of names, too.
Daihatsu F20 (1977-1984)
This rather sweet mini 4x4 off-roader had a 1.6-litre petrol engine, and thankfully for its makers’ sales representatives, it was called the Taft (Tough Almighty Four-wheel-drive Transport) rather than what it was called in Australia, the… erm… Scat.
Datsun 2000 (1967-1970)
With a 135hp 1.6-litre petrol engine, this two-seat MG B-rivalling roadster has a simple beauty about it. Effectively, a mid-life update of the 1600, the 2000 was eventually replaced by the awesome 240Z coupé.
Datsun Micra (1983-1984)
You still see the odd K10-generation Micra bumbling around, but only one of them has a Datsun badge alongside a Nissan one. The same goes for the Prairie MPV.
Datsun 240K-GT Skyline (1977-1981)
There have been many, many version of the Skyline since the name was first used in 1957 (exactly how many depends upon who you ask). With a top speed of 116mph and awesome looks, this coupé must be an awesome sight. Let’s just hope it’s not finished in factory brown.
