Proud new owner of the Molpus family’s 122S, recently brokered through Gateway Atlanta.

Was amazed to find a Japanese chassis tag (slightly oval) on the passenger side of the firewall. Image size too big, email me or PM me for the actual pic.

The chassis and model numbers match the original one from Göteborg, but I have no idea on the history behind this one.

Could this have been sold to a Japanese sales pool or fleet, despite being a LHD car?

Any clues or help here would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the Forum, David.

Very nice Amazon - you are a lucky man!

Email that image to me and I'll size it down and post it here.




Question - those interior hooks that hang the seatbelt buckles - missing?

Thanks.

Here is the Badge from Japan...



David, can you read the name of the automobile company on the badge?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, to the best of my abilities, no.
