About 16,000 Isuzu Bellett sedans are believed to have been exported from Japan to Australia, plus about 290 Bellett GT coupes in the period from 1964 to 1970. The majority of cars were imported by 1968. As far as I know, none of the station wagon variants or diesel cars were imported nor the 2 door sedan called the 1600 Sport or the DOHC GTR coupe. A few 1800cc SOHC coupes have been seen. Accounting for damaged cars, there are probably less than 100 or so complete GT's left in Australia.

I have been a follower of these vehicles from 1966 when I first saw them and then from about 1979, when I actually got to own my first Bellett, a 1965 sedan, which I rebuilt.  Since then, I have owned six or so,  including sedans and 3 GT coupes. I recently sold my last GT, which I restored in about 1992.

I have been a member of the Bellett Car Club of Victoria (inc) since about 1980. I was the Treasurer of the club up until early 2012.

UPDATE July 2012:- After being without a Bellett since 2005, the 'urge' (disease?) has returned.

I am currently in the middle of getting a 2 Door "SPORT" sedan from Japan. After a long search and many dissapointments, I found a nice (in pictures) 1972 Sport model sedan. It will be the only such model in Australia. The car was purchased in Japan in June and arrived in Australia in October 2012. The deal also included a quantity of spare parts. The car was not running but that was quickly quickly sorted out. (distributor problem)
