The Chrysler Royal was an automobile introduced by Chrysler Australia in February 1957 as a locally produced model based on the 1953 US Plymouth. This revived a name used by Chrysler in the US market from 1937 to 1950. It was offered with a choice of 230.2 cu in (3.8 L) or 250.6 cu in (4.1 L) straight-6, or 313 cu in (5.1 L) V8 engines. In addition to the Royal four-door sedan, Chrysler Australia also produced the following Royal based derivatives:

  • Chrysler Plainsman Station Wagon from 1957 to 1959
  • Chrysler Wayfarer 1/2-ton Utility from 1957 to 1961
  • Chrysler Panel Van from 1958 to 1961

Production of the Royal sedan ceased in 1964.
