Eduardo Barreiros and the Recovery of Spain

This chapter discusses the adversities faced by Barreiros Diesel in Spain, which at the time of Chrysler's capture of power in the company at the end of 1967 was worth a little more than $36 million. That included 850 million pesetas for the land on which the fábrica had been built and over 140 million in buildings. Most of the old company products were still a success, Eduardo, through the gifted Julio Vidal, the able coruñés who served the firm in Egypt, had most advantageously just sold 200 military lorries to King Faisal. Of the new products of the Chrysler era, the Simca was now selling well. Even though Chrysler was in full control of Barreiros Diesel, the managers of that body did not hesitate to introduce changes in the company.
