Chrysler took full control of Rootes.

3,759 Series 5 Rapiers were built.
The fastback Rapier was introduced in October. It is based on the Hillman Hunter using Rootes' 1725cc four cylinder engine with twin Stromberg 150CD carburettors and an alloy head. A choice of either a Borg-Warner automatic or a manual gearbox with Laycock de Normanville overdrive is available.
The Stiletto was launched. It is a combination of the Hillman Imp Californian coupé bodyshell to the Imp Sport engine a has a unique interior treatment, making it the most desirable Imp derivative.
Tiger Series 2 was produced only for few months. It has even bigger American Ford V-8 engine and revised rear suspension. Externally distinguishable by egg-crate grille.

Chrysler-Rootes offers various Hillman and Singer models as Sunbeam in certain overseas markets. Sunbeam Vogue is sold in continental Europe where the Singer name is not as well known. Sunbeam Arrow - Export variant of the Hillman Hunter. This model appears to have taken a variety of forms. For the US market, it initially appeared in 1967 as a rebadged Hillman Hunter.
