Isuzu Bellel Three-Fer: 60s Japanese Diesel Sedan Goodness

The Isuzu Bellel (which, the interwebs state, references fifty bells - the meaning of Isuzu) was Isuzu's first in-house design, but was inspired by the Hillman/Sunbeam Imp Minx, which Isuzu previously built under license.  These are rear-wheel drive sedans and were originally offered with diesel or gasoline engines.  Today's feature includes not one, not two, but three Bellels!


One car is a driver and two are either parts cars or for restoration. The seller includes some nice videos related to these cars, to which we've linked below. The videos have the bonus of showing an unidentified engine on a stand, as well as some other interesting project cars in the background.  Also, be sure to look for glances of the really cool tail lights!

Are you brave enough to step up and become an instant Bellel collector?

Video 1: Black 1964 Diesel Deluxe - non-running but apparently complete and supposedly only needs starter work.

Video 2: Blue 1965 pitched as a parts car - no axle shafts, but runs, as documented in the video.  As the seller points out, there are some 1965-only improvements that arguably make this the best car, but some of those specific parts are missing...

Video 3: 1964 driver - yes, this car is driven in the video and yes, you get to see a "four on the tree" in action.

This is the runner and features the same classic styling as the others.


Another angle.  Note the classic, Japanese fender mirrors.


This is the non-running 1964.


And...the blue-ish 1965 comes with the trailer!  That's because the rear axles have been removed.
