MAZDA 1000/1300

2-door/4-door saloon/coupé/estate car.

Small-engined baby-Mazda, a version of the 1200 first seen here in 1968, yet not imported until 1974. On same 89ins wheelbase, same dumpy styling, same lack of character, but solid, reliable cars, with 62bhp/87bhp (gross in each case). 1300 effectively a relaunched version of early seventies type with few changes. No frills, but paid Mazda's bread-and-butter for years. Displaced by 323 in 1977.
