    Reference for 70s Jap cars re-badged as American brands.

    Anyone on here ever put together some sort of list or reference table for 70s Japanese cars that were re-badged like the Dodge Colt or the Ford Courier? I just thought it might be something interesting to have around, and maybe pretty useful too.

    great idea...

    there is some odd ones too, not a mainstream run.

    the s15 with an isuzu diesel comes to mind. The two I read of local has one at .5 million miles, the other is a collector for the reason of the first proving itself.
    these diversities are funny outcomes like that.. don't really know until one has owned one.
    :roll:

    the colt on the other hand, with AWD and transverse... I await the day engineering can make laws to BAN.
