Very nice RARE car...

I did notice that the Marti report says it came with a white interior and it is now black. This kind of discounts it being an all original and makes you wonder what else has been changed.

Whoever repainted it forgot to line up the trunk latch (no biggie) and put the TuTone stencil too far back (just like mine).

Awesome looking car, though. I don't think that's a horrible price, either... all things considered.

Interesting. I've noticed the Japanese side marker lights on some other pictures of Japanese export cars.

With a little effort it would be a real nice car.

I am pretty sure that means headlamps designed for countries who drive on the correct left-hand side of the road Big Grin

So would this be a export then import back to U.S? Or a cancelled export order after manufacture. Would like to see shipping documentation

It is to my understanding that without the Elite Marti you do not know if it left the country or not. The Elite will give the selling dealer info. There was evidently a purchase plan with the military that also gave the car an export DSO but sometimes was never exported. You know how the military changes their mind on where they send someone. I was told that you went to your base Commissary and placed the order. If Japan was like Germany and the T-5 cars it only cost you $1.00 to bring the car home. My old boss was on flight crew of the B-52 bomber. They flew an officers car from England to Texas in the bomb bay one trip. Humm no customs no duty not fair.
The color change of the interior sucks. My 71 Maverick was Grabber Green great color.
I bet the sticker price was around $5,500 or a little more on this car. You would think they would have got the Elite Marti for such a great car.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Cool car, with some great options. Must be one of the most highly optioned car for that year. Shame about the interior color change.

I did not know you could have a rear mount antenna. New one on me. Can anyone here confirm this?
