Talbot, was there something? In Germany the brand is forgotten, its presence was too short. The Talbot 1510 was not an unpopular car - and actually it was a Simca or a Chrysler. The story is admittedly a bit confusing and we get right in the middle. At a time when everything was already going by the Chrysler name.
Chrysler completely took over the French manufacturer Simca in 1971 and presents 4 years later under the development code Chrysler 6 a new mid-size sedan on the market.

The English side wants rear-wheel drive, the French prefer powered front wheels and a hatchback. While the English in turn demand a classic sedan.
