The 90A Aronde was produced in Australia from 1956 by Northern Star Engineering which, along with Continental and General Distributors, had been contracted to assemble the model from CKD kits, using local content. In July 1959, Chrysler Australia announced that future production of the Aronde would be undertaken at its factories in Adelaide. In late 1959 the P60 was introduced, selling alongside the 90A well into 1960, and a five-door P60 station wagon was introduced in late 1961. The wagon, which was unique to Australia, was based on the four-door sedan and featured an extended roof-line and a tail-gate fitted with a wind-down window. Australian production of the Aronde ceased in 1964. Engine 1.3 L Rush ohv I4

Oil Cans / Oilers  

Ref: Oil-1 Price: $50 + P & P

Tiny oiler by Sutcliffe. It has raised lettering stating "Use Berkels Oils". It has a strong spring to the button oil flow release. These were for Berkels meat slicers and other food machines. The "Use Berkels Oils" exhortation was to ensure that operators used vegetable oils rather than contaminate food machinery with mineral oils. Apparently, these were not painted, but left bare and usually polished by the operator as a matter of pride.

More info here:

Marked Braimes Type Protected Spring Bottom. It has a raised button in the bottom for pumping oil. There have been some repairs with solder around the base of the spout.
