That's some new info for yours truly ! I have only seen the gold coloured engines ( and silver in Mexico-built , Mexican market V8 engines ) . The 'light blue' is the same as the "1972 Blue" engine colour as the U.S. market engines ?
I also recognise the 1969 & earlier radiator . Makes me wonder ; was the stamping / tooling sold to the Brasil assembly plant ?
I don't know if it's the same color. It's a light tone of blue.
Those cars started being build in 1969, only as four door sedans, and the two door hardtop came in 1970.
If Chrysler do Brasil brought from the U.S. the tooling? I would say it's possible.
In the case of the Galaxie (my cup of tea) I know that the production of the 1966 body style here started while the car was syill in full production in the U.S. and that Ford do Brasil made the tooling based on the engineering plans sent from Dearborn in late 1965.
I think Chrysler should had done about the same thing.
