I'm afraid I'd rather have that HA ! :oops:

There seems to be Bellett & Bellel mentioned, are they separate vehicles?

The Contessa was never sold in the UK, probably the only one here is in the sceience museum. Funny little car, a cross between Triumph 1300/2000 and Renault 8.

The Bellel was Isuzu's first own design car after the Minx they built under licence. The Bellett followed it and I think was sold alongside for a short time and is a much nicer looking car, Italian styling. I think both were available as diesels incidentally. Neither UK available unfortunately.

By the way Mr. Bickle, we haven't seen you on OJC yet have we? Hope these Isuzus will make an appearance soon :D

Nigel, I hope I can shake your legendary car buying hands late feb, just lemme know when/where.

Hino made 'normal' cars from the 4CV (same as the Renault but with a Hino badge) in 1953 until about 1970, see http://www.hinosamur...ars/cars_e.html. Apparently they build a few in Holland but that didn't work out, and less than a 1000 were imported to Europe.

The Contessa was a Michelotti design, so the Triumph similarity is no surprise?

Shame this coupe was only done as a prototype...

Hold on, did I just read they made a Toyota V8-powered model called Dandy??

Yes it looks sort of early Triumph 2000-esque!

I like the Bedford HA van in the foreground, but I'm a pleb & probably in the minority! :P
