The Hillman Gazelle is an automobile which was produced by Chrysler Australia [1] from 1966 to 1967.

Based on the British Singer Gazelle VI, the Hillman Gazelle was offered only as a four-door sedan and was essentially an upmarket version of the Hillman Minx VI. It was powered by a 1,725 cc (105.3 cu in) four-cylinder engine producing 85 bhp (63 kW; 86 PS), 15 bhp (11 kW; 15 PS) more than the Minx thanks to its alloy cylinder head and twin-barreled Solex carburetor. This alloy head engine was produced for the Sunbeam Rapier.[2] Chrysler Australia replaced both the Minx and the Gazelle with the Hillman Arrow / Hunter range during 1967.
