    Looks like a mid to late sixties familia coupe, but i reckon that it has had R100 tail lights put in it? Thats my guess....

    right on Madaz, MPA is the chassis configuration for the 1000 coupe. Can't say I've seen the round light swap, not my cup of tea really

    Found these photos in a 1966 Familia catalog from Japan. It looks to be a "base" model with round tail lights. Must have been a JDM only.

    Yes it is the base model 800/1000 for domestic market that was carrying those tail lights, but never seen a coupe carrying those. 1000 coupe had not that wide variety of models like the 2 and 4 door sedans. 1000 coupe was up spec anyway.

    The 1000 coupe is a pretty little car, its a pity that they arent popular amongst restorers. They seem to sell pretty cheap in Australia when they come up for sale.

    I think the lack of knowledge and spare parts scares people off gypsy.

    I know that when I've mentioned them to other people, people have argued that there was only the 1000 ute.
