The Bellett GT has quite a following here and in Japan. One version (Bellett
GT-R of 1969) was fitted with a DOHC engine many years before other Japanese
(and others) cars were so fitted. Having driven one I can tell you that it
is a rocket.


Bellett were made by Isuzu when that company was making road cars. Isuzu
still exists and is the largest manufacturer of diesel engines and so
powered vehicles in the world. If you were to look under the bonnet of most
diesel powered cars you will find some contribution from Isuzu. I don't know
the percentage, but GM hold a commanding ownership of the company.

But can you explain this to me again. I didn't know somebody could shoot

Personally, the bullet mirrors on the door are good. But there are short
spacer ones, and high spacer ones. I'm considering high spacer ones.
Like many others, I don't like mirrors on the guards over the wheels. All
Japanese 1960's cars had those. Like my brothers Bellett...
Nothing against Belletts, or Japanese cars of the same era...
Now I can't get dueling banjos out of my Head...
