Nice little babes mate. Bellett G.T. competition back in the day - would make a good pair-up now. Probably pretty scarce now, I guess - I only know of one other owner, in NSW.
Thanks for showing.
How's the interior? Much different to sedans? I've only been close up to the 1600 S sedan in the past, & that was long ago!
Cheers, Matt.

Those coupes look tuff-as! Now I think of it, I don't think I've ever seen one in the metal!

Thanks for your comments guys. Interior is completely different to a basic sedan, I can't really think of anything the same. The 1600S gets reclining bucket seats, seat belts standard, tunnel race style gauges, floor shift, auto tune radio, chrome trimmings etc. Very "sports" feeling to the cars. The 1600 GT's recieved over and above the 1600S a centre console, racing style bucket seats (shared with the 2000GT) impersonation wood steering wheel and bit different trim. Same basic body but running gear completely different. Similar spec differences to the GT- GT-R.
