Iran 1967-2001: Paykan monopolises the market

Based on the 1966 Hillman Hunter, the Paykan started being assembled in Iran in 1967 by Iran National (later renamed Iran Khodro), and full-scale manufacture of the car, less the engine, was effective in the mid-70’s.

By 1972, it seemed that all the cars in the streets of the country were Paykans, and the model went on to lead the Iranian sales for an astounding 35 years… A total of 1.4 million have been produced.
