Nice. Celebrating the version 2 logo, before GM got involved.
Bit by bit. :D
Matt.

Hi, don’t know much about the logos, I know the one on the Bellett and the one on the Gemini, but I thought it was just an evolution change for the 80’s bit sort of makes sense when GM where on the scene.

Do you know much about the version 2 logo... I think it’s cool...

Took the exhaust in to get fully welded, should be a couple of weeks and might be running again... next job is to replace all the fuel lines.... good old age... there all cracked and perished.

WFH has some benefits...

Hi Glenn,
Yes Stainless tig welding.. thinking I’ll get it glass bead blasted after as well.. rather than the polished look.

Great work Chris, really good to see things coming together.

On the logo, I don't know how it came about, but appeared, in Aus at least, on Belletts and Florians from the 69 model year. The Bellett of which appeared about October '68 and the Florian in December '68. It was the only logo on our Florians, but I've seen the two angled towers on later domestic market ones. It was possibly something to do with attempts at tie-ups with Subaru and with Mitsubishi about that time.
I like it too, it makes me think Florian, and I like to think Florian.

It seems the twin towers (which are basically a back to back stylised 'I' being the first letter of Isuzu) came along after the injection of funds from GM and their increased access to Aus with Holden and the US with Chev.
Cheers, Matt.
