MAZDA 1200/1300

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

Small, utterly conventional and boring, good-value Japanese saloon, a 'safe' car for UK importers to start bringing into the country. 68bhp (gross) at first on overhead valve 1200. 78bhp on overhead-cam 1300. Nobody's collector's car, then or now, with rigid rear axle, dumpy styling, and front disc brakes.
