This is my 1973 Isuzu Bellett! I've always loved the look of these cars! In my eyes they are the first true 2 door sports GT car that Japan created. Sure there were 2 door and 4 door sports cars and GT cars before these, but the looks of these screamed GT and with the twin cam engine (although mine has the single cam engine) these cars were true contenders! This particular example is the last year that the Belletts were built and is the 1800 GT model. I've got a full on restoration planned for the body and interior to bring her back to her former beauty. I've also got a small engine swap planned to a newer single cam Isuzu 1.8 liter engine and hope to swap the springs and dampers for something slightly stiffer (in hopes of eliminating the inherent positive camber in the rear). Also hope to stuff some nice black mesh wheels under those gorgeous fenders!
But first, we gotta take her apart! Click on for more!
