Beautiful teardrops :P
I like the look of the cloth inserts in the seats in your dads car. Very cool.
The black beetle in the background looks very tidy too.

Great to see, and yes it is always asurprise for us to see the steering on that side of the car.
Your cars are so nice and original. My automatic deluxe is the same model, early '66 here.
Beautiful!

Thanks for coming on here and showing us. Are there many Belletts in Sweeden?
Cheers, Matt.

Great pictures

thanks for putting them up for us. Hang onto them. Your cars are really rare. Most cars with the steering wheel on the wrong side don't pass quality control :lol: :lol:

Farmer: It's just fun to show the cars for someone who understands what it is for car, we only have about 15 cars left in Sweden so no one understands what it is...We have 6 of the 15. :D
Yellow peril: No it is you who have the steering wheel on the wrong side!! :lol: :lol:
All our cars look like this! My 68 Volkswagen bus.

And now begins the history lesson
it's my grandfather who was general importer for Isuzu Swedish AB thats why my father began collect the cars in order to preserve the history of the late 90 century.
Here are some Old pictures.

the story is great fun .
I have been told that there were three different models ,
Deluxe 1 = no chrome trim , tinted windows or fabric in the seats.
Deluxe 2 = chrome trim tinted windows front and rear no fabric in the seats
Deluxe 3 = chrome trim tinted windows all around and the fabric on the seats as in the pictures.

But i could be wrong...
