HILLMAN AVENGER GT/GLS

2-door/4-door 4-seater saloon.

Surprisingly nimble and lively versions of bread-and-butter Avenger, with twin-carb engines, firmer suspension, better handling, and 100mph top speed. Only four-door GTs at first with better instrumentation, then plusher GLS for '74 model year with enlarged engine.Two-door GT from spring '73, this model fading in favour of nicer GLS in later years. Another Rootesmobile with some competition potential, but Tiger versions (see below) even more suitable. All continued as Chryslers for 1977.
