I don't have a clue on this one if it's not a car with the Hemi; nothing in the 60's could come close to the 426. Unless maybe it was one of those LS6 454 Chevelles??? S.S.S.

A french company partnered with them in the eightys, then purchased them, then sold them to Dodges parent company.

One must remember torque and horsepower need to balanced with size of the car. Power to weight ratio. Cars that you are thinking about are large and heavy.

After Renault went into partnership with AMC, they decided to purchase them. They lasted about 5 years and sold the entire company to Chrysler who wanted them because of the Jeep brand name. After their take over Chrysler decided to change the brand name from AMC to Eagle. Which was a spin off of Jeep. AMC had brought out a line of vehicles before there time, which are now called crossovers or SUVs. Jeep and AMC decide to build a set of cars that were four wheel drive. They called them Jeep Eagle Concords. The car I'm referring to was a joint venture car with Mitsubishi motors. The North American Car was the Talon from Eagle, Lancer from Plymouth and the Eclipse from Mitsubishi. But the main decide was the Talon from Eagle which was slated to be called the AMX V
