Was this manual sent from Australia?

There appears to be two versions in English; one version is in English but makes very little sense while the other version is much easier to read!

Hey Dave!
Dad does not remember where he got it from but think it was part of a deal with spare parts 10 years ago here in Sweden.
He dad bought the spare parts sold Belletts when they came to Sweden in 1966, so maybe a car dealer handbook??

It was a long time since I was here but that has not happened anything special, just that I found the car under a cover and got the guilt so now she's out and exercise. :D
Some may have seen it on Instagram already...?

Here she rests in the nice weather in the shade.

Yes, some have seen her on Instagram. ;)
Very nice to see her out enjoying the sommar and getting some excercise. Excersize keeps us healthy!
Great following your page with all the summer activities.
Cheers, Matt.

Now it's time for the 67 to come out on the road again! The brakes behaved strangely now I know why...
Carburetor was blocked to so it should have a proper bath.

Fun to work with Isuzu again!! :D :D

This car is imported by a private person who worked with my grandfather who was an importer and distributor of Isuzu and he wanted the "latest model" this is the only 67 in Sweden.

Rare and special. Good on you for keeping her nice. I see a brake lining detached from the shoe, my brother had this happen a little while back too. Reduces the efficiency somewhat!
Cheers, Matt.

Can camp on the front guards..... No problem
Try doing that with a modern car...
Just lean against them and they buckle
