After many years of making losses, in 1968 Rootes is in financial profit. This group incluses Hillman, Sunbeam, Singer and Humber, belongs since 1964 to Chrysler. The Americans have taken care of their own way. The Rootes Group was completely reorganized, they sold some twigs, reduced the staff and drastically reduced the model range. Although all four brands still exists, there are basically only two model series: the small Hillman Imp and the medium-sized Hillman Minx, each presented in different variations. In most exporting countries, all Rootes passenger cars are sold only under the brand Sunbeam. The Sunbeam Alpine, built from 1959, disappeared from the program. It was no longer able to comply with American safety regulations.
