Motorhead / Importer

Blue Honda Acty kei-truck in nice condition. 660cc 3-cylinder motor; 5-speed transmission and full-time 4WD. Blue exterior looks great. Interior is pretty good but driver’s seat could use a new cover.

Great utility with 350kg (>750 lb) load capacity and capable of 65mph on the road. Lots of fun around town and if you’re putting it to work, these are a great alternative to a UTV – either way very efficient and lots of utility for the money.


Lotus Super Seven assembled by the Canadian constructor Super Seven Sportscar Co. using the build with legendary small Toyota twin-cam 2TG motor stroked to 2000cc as in the Novamotor F3 engine – mated to a 5-speed transmission.

Just 16,489 kilometers on the odometer and great condition. Will be in-hand here in Seattle September, 2018.

Interesting feature for a sister-car built by the Canadian Fejer concern.

Eye Candy: 1985 Fejer Super Seven Roadster

Rare 1988 Fiat Ritmo Abarth 130TC with just 38,500 kilometers (23,870 miles) showing on the odometer (stated as original). Nice shape inside and out with twin sidedraft Weber DCOE; factory tubular header; factory upgraded gearbox and a near perfect mix of simple hatchback design with old-school carbureted twincam – power-plant – raucous fun.

The Fiat Ritmo Abarth is an excellent car. I’ve owned a couple – having purchased my first 125TC in Frankfurt in 1992 to travel through Germany / Czech / Austria / Italy / Switzerland. Fantastic car – very fun to drive and great 1980’s feel with real carburetors and before ABS / Traction control / AWD / etc.  

Not your normal hot-hatchback – this is a homologation special that kept the Abarth team in the road and racing scene helping lay the groundwork for later milestones like the Lancia Delta HF Integrale. —-

  • Comments Off on 1993 Mazda Bongo / Ford Spectron turbo-diesel – 18k miles

Fantastic Mazda Bongo turbo-diesel van branded as a Ford Spectron XLT with original records and under 18k miles (28,424 kilometers). Hailing from the mild climate of Osaka, Japan this van is in exceptional condition.

Equipped with a 2-liter turbo diesel and 5-speed manual transmission for very efficient touring. Like many of the mid-size Japanese vans, the interior is very flexible – middle seats rotate 180 degrees so the middle seat can face forward or backward and fold down to make into a flat bed. Rear climate control and curtains for privacy.

Similar to the Mitsubishi Delica and the Toyota TownAce, the Mazda Bongo is a great platform for travels or urban hauling. Great alternative to a Volkswagen Vanagon providing lots of utility for the money.

Sailing on Tonsberg ff828 due in Sept 26th and will be in-hand the following week.Will share more when in-hand.

Neat Mazda Eunos Roadster in grey with hard-top and a few nice modifications with only 98k miles (158k kilometers).

  • Comments Off on Birkin (Lotus) Super Seven – rolling chassis / project

Early 1990’s Super Seven manufactured by Birkin. Selling as a rolling chassis of what was obviously a very nice build – prepared for dry-sump Cosworth and running Nissan GT-R R32 calipers and quality cooling system /  steering (less wheel) / interior. Not included: nose-cone; fenders; steering wheel.


Really neat Toyota Corona Mark II Coupe Utility (pickup / ute). Similar in size to the Datsun Sunny – with that old school Toyota utilitarian charm – now that’s a parts runner!


Here is a historical listing for this vehicle –

Classic Austin / Rover Mini 1300 with only 70k kilometers. Japanese version of the Monte Carlo and with the distinctive Monte Carlo interior (red carpets, seats, door panels, etc.) but different details unique to this market as noted in the thread below – other forums note different Monte Carlo colors and specs for Japan-market.

  • Chassis: SAXXNNAYCBD096706
  • Engine: 12A2DJ33 308829
  • Paint code RCR (British Racing Green / White Diamond) and engine code differs from online guidance.


From an online forum, ‘… 200 limited edition models ever build worldwide <snip> The ‘Monte Carlo’ Edition Mini Cooper was built in 1994 as a tribute to Paddy Hopkirk’s Monte Carlo Rally victory thirty years earlier in 1964. It was fitted with special alloy wheels. four spot front headlamps. and a red and cream themed interior reminiscent of the 60’s brocade interior


Neat Toyota diesel 4×4 with only 60,124 kilometers (37k miles) on the odometer – reported to be original. Looks good inside and out – especially for a 30-year old vehicle!

the Blizzard range is like an 85% scale version of the FJ40 / BJ70. Uses the 2.4 liter 2L diesel motor mated to the 5-speed shared with the Hilux.
