My brother sent me these photos today:

These are photos that the previous owner of my T600 gave to me in order to have an evidence of the vehicle's specifications when new (1967).

Mazda news in Greece 1974


Image


My RX9's detail


Image


Mazda RX3 at 25th Acropolis Rally 1978 (C. Torres- ? De Almeida, Portugal)

I ve seen that car in flesh, I even had a quick ride at the co-driver's seat. One of the best automobile related experiences in my life was the big service at the night interval of the rally. Mazda Greece, besides his team, was servicing the car. Great tension when an unsolved problem appeared and the amazing things they did to solve it out (sorry my terminology english dont permit me to describe the problem). Plus 3 official mazda 323 1.3 plus 2 private 323s that night. I was 12 years old, and still remember every minute. Finally the RX3 won the group N, the 3 323s the "manufacturer's cup" and the other 2 did it to the finish line.

and a today's shot

Back with some pics.

1200 pick up, the most popular mazda in Greece

Image


Image

Image


One more RX9 with good possibilities to be saved from scrap. I spotted two years before on the road. The lady decided to sell it now. She called me, I called a friend. He went to inspect it, and quite propably gonna buy it for 1500 euros.

Image



Image


From a book dedicated to Acropolis rally history. The 1969 mazda team, three 1200 2-door sedans, all finished and got the "constructor's cup".


Image




Carlos Torres, ath the 1978, 26th Acropolis, 1st at group 1, 11th overall {just released a very detailed replica, my best toy}.

As I got very strong memories from that rally, my father then the mazda greece sales manager got me at the big service night, what a night, the RX3, 3 more 323s from mazda greece, plus 3 more 323s)- I post some pics.

Image



Image



Image



Image


A mate from Portugal solved me some questions about the car's engine (it was a 10A ported-not ...100% following to the regulations), and sent some photos. Here there are.

Image


Image



Image



Image


And finally an RX2, late eighties I guess

Thanks. Not rallying a T600, but the crasiest thing I ve heard of was that at late sixties they tried to create a three wheel F800/F1000 due to taxation reasons. Well, the vehicle did not pass the requirements of the then Greek ministry of transportations, and not a single photo left.

Some pics of my unrestored cars, shot recently when I visited the place I store them.

My T600


Image


A 1973 RX3 bought some months ago. Matching numbers car but so rusty that I quit the idea of restoring it.

Image


My other RX3 at the pic, a very late 10A car (with a 1600 recipsrosal engine), one of the two RX3s I am going to restore. At the backround my rusty 1974 RX4, initially for restoration, now I parts car.

Thanks.

From sales advertisments.




1977 RX4 (LA22)
Image


Image


Image



Image



Image





RX7s


Image



Image




Image



Image



Image



Image



Image


Image

I doubt this is an original turbo car.



Some 1200s


Image



Image



a 1978 car

Image


Image


Image


Image


Image


and a 1985 car. I was told that Iran and Greece were the last two countries 1200 was produced for.


Image

Image


Image

I am not sure if this is the original logo, as many cars were carrying the 1976 on logo.


And finally a photo from a greek historic cars forum. The guy who shot the picture doesn not remember where tht was exactly. I have to search more than 30 villages for them. These are T1500s, assemblied locally.
