If I remember right, during that time there was a Plymouth Cricket stateside that I understand was a re-badged Hunter.  I do not recall those cars being connected with GM at all but shucks, what do I know?

To Err is human, to blame it on someone else shows management potential.

MM, when this car was shipped over the big pond it was simply a Hillman. The parent company (I think its was rootes) had no ties to the US until Chrysler purchased it in '68 or'69. As a side note this company also produced the sunbeam tiger. Trainwreck.

The cricket was an avenger,used to own a Humber scepre whuch was a posh hunter - gave my neighbour Mr Hubert a lift home - he was the proverbial english gent in his 80s and it made his day getting a ride in  a Humber!Cool

The Plymouth Cricket was actually a rebadged Hillman Avenger.
