There is some interesting reading about BRE and the Hino Contessa that I found over at www.datsun.org.

http://www.datsun.org/fairlady/BREHino.htm

They were into racing Japanese cars before the Fairladies and Zeds that they are most known for.

I here theres a handful of these cars over here in Perth WA.

You found the back way into www.fairlady.org A fantastic website devoted to the Datsun Roadster racing history, you could spend days there.

The Hino car hauler is currently at Classic Datsun in San Diego

Good to see Hino hasn't forgotten its (distant!) roots

I love the Contessa. The 1300 looks awesome as a race car.

I got that image from beeoneoneoh's excellent blog: http://beeoneoneoh.wordpress.com/2009/01/

There's a great website for the Contessa here: http://www.hinosamurai.org/Contents/his ... ory_e.html
It's a Japanese site, but it's also in English. Here are a couple of images I pulled of the Contessa 900 Sprint which sadly never went into production.
