Survivor Spec: 1969 Mazda Luce 1500 SS - 1st-Gen (SUA)
May 28, 2016
Each year this beautiful old Luce makes its way over the Kanmon Bridge from Yamaguchi to the Mojiko Retro Car Meeting. I'm certainly glad it does.
The SU/SV Series Luce was built from Jul 1966 to Mar 1972. This Luce sedan was built in 1969. It has a 1,490cc inline 4 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>
