Chrysler sold its ownership stake to Tatko, Iftçiler & Ruşensad in 1978, who were then the local partners and owners. Under the terms of the Chrysler's license, Askam kept producing. Askam mostly utilised Perkins diesel engines in their creations.

Askam was a Turkish truck and commercial vehicle manufacturer (official name: Askam Kamyon Imalat ve Ticaret A). The business was founded as a joint venture with Chrysler, a US-based firm, and sells its goods under the Dodge, Fargo, and DeSoto brands. Turkey's largest truck manufacturer was Askam.
