Italian styling?
The front looks very much like the Fiat 850 Coupe

There were only a few made. It was acclaimed in a 1963 magazine, and then featured in a 1990 nostalgic car magazine.

The car they speak of does run, but needs a lot of work to get it in good running condition.

They use a lot of useless metaphors and personal anecdotes; it's really fluffy writing. Example:

Quote:
It is an earl woman of our admiration is beautiful and cheerful, not an earl woman of the heavy makeup that grew old that legs were enfeebled.

Does the 1300 version share the same body?

This car doesn't look Japanese at all. To me at least.
