Just picked this up for my wife, she does have good taste!

Has a 1 litre Charade 3 banger put into it, up on the 850cc it had in it, the old boy who had owned it previously made up some stainless extractors and exhaust for it cause he didn't want it to rust hahaha...

An absolute gem, maintained like nothing else - the old boy also has taken the skins off the interior panels and sprayed with CRC once a year, so it won't rust. One of the indicator bulbs wasn't working so he took it to the Auto sparkey and told them to replace every bulb in the vehicle! So I have a nice jar of perfectly good spare bulbs hahaha... Have all the reciepts for everything. He's also recorded the perfect amount of turns to lower the spare tyre under the carpet - 60. Not 59, and not 61. It shall be 60 turns and no more or less. OCD much?

I think it must still have the 850 gearbox cause around town it hauls but starts ringing out about 80kph, pretty low geared but perfect city hauler! Only 145,000km.

Love seeing Daihatsu's on this site. Any pictures of the 1 liter engine setup? Curious to see if it is mounted at an angle like the trucks.

Ask and ye shall recieve!

Is this how you imagined it to be? I'd love to stick the turbo charade engine in one day when we get enough funds together. But in the mean time, this engine has enough pep for the wife.

Stainless steel extractors leading to the stainless exhaust:

Got some sweet cassettes the other day for the tape player (the animals, cream, otis redding etc etc)
Image

Today mission, clean up the rear seat frame and find the anchor points for the seat belts and put them in.

Interior isn't too shabby, except for the carpet. Lucky the wife works right beside Carpet Court so hopefully they'll have some off cuts that suit. Need about 3mx1.3m.

This is a cool little van, it's nice to pick neat cars like these up when they've had careful, attentive previous owners.

thanks for the extra pictures. And yes, it is exactly what i figured. The engine is slightly tilted to one side.

Thanks guys! Very stoked with it.

Yeah, I'm liking the engine being on the tilt, it might may things easier if we ever droped a turbo charade engine in 8)
