The Dodge Phoenix is an automobile which was produced by Chrysler Australia from 1960 to 1973.

The Phoenix was introduced in 1960 as an Australian assembled version of the American Dodge Dart, [http://www.allpar.com/model/phoenix.html The Phoenix] Retrieved from allpar.com on 12 September 2008] positioned above the locally developed Chrysler Royal as Chrysler Australia’s luxury model. It borrowed its name from the top Dart model, the Dodge Dart Phoenix, but unlike its American namesake it was offered only as a four door sedan and only with a 318 cubic inch V8 engine.

Like the 1965 Fury, this model featured vertically stacked headlights. A four door hardtop body style joined the sedan in 1967 fitted with a 383 cubic inch V8 engine. The sedan continued with the smaller 318 cubic inch V8. The two body styles continued to be offered until the final Australian Phoenix was built in 1973.
