As the Galant grew in popularity, Chrysler imported the facelifted GB range, featuring round headlights, minor trim changes and the arrival of a nicely equipped Galant GL.

Underneath the GL’s bonnet the 1.5 gave way to a 75kW/136Nm 1.6-litre OHC four-cylinder engine, offered for the first time in a three-speed automatic model.

The move was deemed necessary as Datsun introduced its soon-to-be wildly successful 180B in the same month, usurping the classic 1600.

From July ’73 an attractive four-door wagon (in base XL and luxury GL guises) was added to the Galant range, both powered by the 1.6-litre Saturn four-cylinder engine.
