This is another English-language LHD brochure made most likely for the Candanian market.

It says '1968' written in pencil on it somewhere, but it appears to be the model 1967-1968 so I just put it in as a '67.

Here's the cover;

The second page opens to a beautiful big spread showing a stylised version of the LHD sedan along with a Japanese chalet of some kind.

The rest of the pages are stand-alone items.

Apparently the piano-style light and wiper switches introduced with this model help to create a feeling of a deluxe mood.

Also, Belletts don't have temperature gauges. They have thermometers. The stylised highway in the windscreen is pretty cool.

The stylised interior is great, especially with the fishermen in the background. Apparently Bellett's don't have glove boxes, they have convenience compartments! How convenient.

The Engrish pulls into overdrive on this one with the description of the parcel shelf is apparently 'sufficiently dented' so that parcels do not fall off, no matter how violently the car may be shaken. Full on!

Described also is the motor, which offers happy motoring (ah the Japanese and their happiness) with such power and zip which can be had when it is most needed. Handy!

Like the other LHD brochures, this one heavily features the deluxe at the expense of the standard version. It's a casual car of deluxe quality (except it's not a Deluxe!).

The specs table features on the back, per most of Isuzu's other Bellett brochures.

Because the interior has been drawn, it's hard to see if it shows carpet, but seeing as the earlier and the later models both had carpet on the Deluxes it probably has it.

Brochure-wise, as far as I've seen they all have GT-style arm rests as well.

I'd guess that not many people would have an original carpet still in good nick. Any trimmer should be able to make up something, usually with variable results based on how much you spend!

Totally :D Although if an oriental accent is applied, the brochure comes across very stoick 'Japlish'. This one promotes everything the Bellett is.

It's got the rat covered !

PR91 mentioned that he also has this brochure.... in Dutch! The pictures are entirely the same, however the text is obviously completely different.

There is no catalog number either, but it still says "Printed in Japan", so it's not a local creation.

Sheesh! There's no end....

In Dutch?! I've got this one, in English but with a stamp from a Dutch dealership... what I've got scanned so far can be found here.
