Cars of Alpha: 1985 Mazda Familia GT-X 4WD - 323/GLC

October 28, 2017

How is it that the humble, grocery-getting Mazda 332/GLC is a rarity in modern-day Japan? More confusing is the fact that the higher/sportier grade of the car, if they are to be found at all, are more common. BF Platform / 1597 cc DOHC B6 engine / BFMR.

The BF Series Familia was built from Jan 1985 to Sep 1994. This Familia liftback was built in 1985. It has a 1,597cc inline 4 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

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>
