Histories and photos of the cars
The 1962 right-hand drive Valiants and Lancers used the 1961 dashboard.
The 1963-1964 Valiant, models TVX and VVX, were the Valiants sold in Canada, but they were built in Detroit for export as well; they were sold in Great Britain with right-hand drive. The Dodge Kingsway two door wagon was called the Commercial Utility, just as the Diplomat was.
To make the list complete, (Chrysler Canada did not built export vehicles during 1955 model year) :
All 1955 V8 engines were imported from Detroit. Chrysler of Canada did not start building V8 engines in Canada until 1956. Also, for 1956 to 1958, the Belvedere 6 and Mayfair 6 were not sold in Canada; nor were the 1959 Fury 6 and Viscount 6. These were all V8 only.
