Red-Hot Hatch: 1984 Daihatsu Charade Turbo DeTomaso - G11/CB60 Engine
May 26, 2018
I have yet another old-school JDM unicorn for you today that is turbo and so very 80's. This reworked 2nd generation Charade is the result of a special collaboration between Daihatsu and Italian sports-car manufacturer, DeTomaso.
This Charade hatchback was built in 1984. It has a 993cc inline 3 engine.
I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
