1973 Chrysler.jpg

Chrysler (CJ). 1973–5 (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan, 2-door coupé. F/R, 265 in³ (I6 OHV), 360 in³ (V8 OHV). Few outward revisions to CJ to distinguish it from CH, other than the deletion of the coachline and the addition of sill and wheel arch mouldings as standard. Vinyl roof lowered slightly compared with CH, to make CJ appear sleeker. Same engine options as before, but slightly de-contented to take some sales from the contemporary Ford Fairlane (ZG) and Holden Statesman de Ville—though equipment levels never went too far down. Slightly harsh ride but far more refined than lesser VJs, and handled better, with its heavy-duty front stabilizer bar.

Manufacturing location: Tonsley Park, South Australia, Australia

Marque: Chrysler | Predecessor: Chrysler (CH) | Successor: Chrysler (CK)
