Volga Sebring? Gazelle Stratus? Russian automaker buys DaimlerChrysler tooling

DaimlerChrysler announced today that it is selling the tooling for its defunct Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Stratus models to Gorky Automotive Works (GAZ) in Russia.
The tooling is being liberated by the renovation of DaimlerChrysler's Sterling Heights, Michigan plant, which is being prepared to build the next-generation Sebring and Stratus models.

GAZ will be able to produce and sell the vehicles in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States, under its Volga and Gazelle brands. The company holds 18 percent of the Russian auto market.
