My scanner is cutting off some of the page, will try and sort that out if anyone's interested, 8 pages in all.

So check this out:


That is the thread I put up of the same brochure...or so it would seem!

The pair feature the same photos/drawings etc but completely different text!

I've seen this before; the Isuzu seemed to spray out brochures in multiple languages for multiple countries without investigating the finer nuances of the markets they were targeting.

I mean, the brochure I have I FIGURED would be for Canada; would there be a need for a LHD, English-language brochure anywhere else? USA perhaps, but they were never officially sold there (someone on Bring a Trailer said they saw them for sale brand new next to the LHD Diesel Bellel, except they were RHD JDM items!).

So it's almost as if CMI (Canadian Motor Industries) has said, "nah, we're going to re-do that with our own copy thanks" and done exactly that.

I've got a LOT of brochures, but that's certainly one I don't have - well, not in CMI form anyway! Really cool Andrew!

The text is different on every page. Mine reads a lot more like a North American put it together ;)

Interesting brochure, I wonder what the Canada specific suspension modifictions were?
Great to read the differences,
thanks for showing.
Cheers, Matt.
