MEGA-RARE JDM!! 1974 Isuzu (Holden) Statesman Deville - 1 of 246

May 21, 2015

I was CERTAIN that I'd never get to see one of these GMH-sourced, V8 powered Isuzu sedans, BUT I DID!! This car, believe it or not, was on the bucket list, and it's a very short list with just 4 entries. There's a whole lot in this video; DO NOT MISS A FRAME.

The HQ814AD/HQ814BD Series Statesman was built from 1973 to 1975. This Statesman Sedan was built in 1974. It has a 5,047cc V8 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>
