The Plymouth Caravelle(s) were Canadian only models of the Chrysler
M-body, and later the K-body. It was produced intermittently during
the 70's and 80's.
I mis-spent a great deal of my teenage years on "road-tours" in a
friends 1981 Plymouth Caravelle coupe. Slant-six, auto and RWD. The
leaning-tower-of-power pushed it to a top speed of about 145kph.
