Hello, this is my 1985 Daihatsu Charmant with 4AC engine and T50 Transmission.

i bought this car for about $2500 (converted to US$ from local currency) a month ago. i dont know if you can find this car in the US, but where i live its a quite rare car to find. its basically an upmarket version of Toyota KE70. this car has the same underbody, drivetrain, and engine as a SR5 i think.

im currently working on putting a Weber DCN 40mm on the car, hopefully by this weekend it'll be installed.

i think that's it for now, will post new stuff as it arrive...

Judging by the number of Indonesian members who own Charmants, these must be everywhere over there. I remember seeing exactly one of these in my entire life.

Very nicely done too, like the rims and the subdued mods.


thanks skunk. there's actually not that many charmants in Indonesia, its just the owners are active in forums and communities, most charmant posters in JNC come from the same charmant community, as do i. hehe

original-spec charmants rust easily and its popularity is (greatly) overshadowed by the KE70 here. :(

4-2-1. :tu:

They are typically known for giving better torque and low-end throttle response than a 4-1.

Pretty sure the first "official" Daihatsu we got here in the US was the Charade. :cry:


But they do look decent when they're modified. :tu:
