Four Doors for More Chores: 1971 Mazda 1300 Deluxe - STBV/Familia
July 05, 2017
If I'm lucky, August is when I get to visit family and friends in Australia, and check out some great car-related events. Over two years, I've spotted this 4-door station wagon on three occasions, and even got to chat with the owner to find out a whole lot more about it.
The Series was built from Dec to Dec . This Familia stationwagon was built in 1971. It has a 1,500cc 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>
