Chasing a 1967 Isuzu Bellett 1600GT Fastback (PR91G)

This Bellett Coupe was built in 1967. It has a 1,579cc 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>
