Surely the production figures at 14'08" are wildly incorrect? Over 200,000 Toledos and fewer than 100,000 Dolomites?!
I don't know so much, There were only 24000 ish Sprints built over 7 years of production (73-80) leaving 75000 Dolomites (ie 1850s) The Toledo had a 6 year run from late 1970 to 1976 in both 2 and 4 door form (though the 2 door ended a year earlier in 75)
So you reckon the chart is listing only 1850/Sprint under "Dolomite", with every 1300 variant (1300FWD, 1300TC, Dolomite 1300) under "1300" and every 1500 variant (1500FWD, 1500TC, Dolomite 1500) under "1500"?
If so, it's not only a bizarre way in which to to list production figures, it's still wildly inaccurate, especially regarding the Toledo figure.
I got these figures from Wiki so they could well be bollocks, but...
All 1300 variants excluding Toledo - 180381
All 1500 variants excluding Toledo - 161923
Toledo - 119182
1850 and Sprint - 101951
I agree the numbers don't add up if looking at TOTAL Dolomite and related car production. The chart makes more sense if you look at it as from mid 60s (when the 1300FWD was introduced) up to the range rationalisation of 1976. That would account for there being more 1300s than 1500s as the 1300fwd ran from 65-70 almost unchallenged, whereas the 1500FWD that replaced it only ran from 70-72 and the 1500TC that replaced the FWD had a similarly short career. Also NO HL models are listed. The 1500 only really took off AFTER 76 with the 1500HL being VERY popular with buyers. Also note the "Dolomite" listed as JUST that, which was only done pre 76. Later cars were badged and sold as Dolomite "somethings", 1300, 1500, 1500HL, 1850HL and Sprint respectively. This take would also explain the odd looking high number of Toledos. The Toledo was dropped in 76 so no more were built whilst the other models went on for another 4-5 years.
Another thing to consider is market placement. The 1300FWD had it's own place in the range between the Herald and the 2000 and suffered poor sales because of it. It was more expensive (if more luxurious too) than similar market competitors like the 1100/1300 ADO16s from BMC and things like the Cortina and Viva.
But when the Toledo was launched in 1970, it wasn't there to replace the 1300FWD (The 1500FWD did that and suffered a similar fate in the marketplace) but to replace the smaller, cheaper Herald (discontinued in early 71) So the Toledos marketplace was already there, with a clientele champing at the bit to own one. So, unsurprisingly, it sold very well.
It wasn't till the "Dolomite" (1850) of 1972 that the more expensive mid range car finally found a niche that suited it, as a medium sized saloon with sporting pretensions. The Sprint launched in 73 was the icing on the cake and probably lent street cred and sales to the smaller engined offerings marketed as Dolomites after 76.
As to who is correct on actual Toledo numbers (wiki or this chart) I wouldn't like to say, someone like Rob Marshall the Toledo register secretary is more up on these things than I am. But I was genuinely surprised at just how high some of the late production Toledo chassis numbers i've seen are! Some are in 6 figures!
My own Dec 73 2 door car, whilst having a relatively low number (9063) is a "facelift" car which only went into production less than a year earlier, pre and post facelift Toledos had different model codes, as did 2 and 4 door models. If you assume 10,000 per year as mine implies, double it to account for 4 door models, makes 20,000 a year, over 6 years gives you 120,000 Toledos (very roughly) But I wouldn't be surprised if more were built in the early (prefacelift) years when the model was newer and had less competition.
