There is an article at the "japanese restorer". As far as I remember there must be less than ten restored or under restoration, as they were only imported for one-two years. Look at the mazford auction for photos of an australian example.

Awesome, Congrats on getting it and the sale going well. Have you got parts required organised or are you still on the lookout?

Don't forget to post pics in the Carol picture thread when you get a chance :wink:

The T600 will be stored for some years, as there are other restoration priorities. I am not looking for parts. But I will keep my eyes open for a relic, parts that might be common with other mazda vehicles etc. Unfortunately I cant communicate with the irex-co.jp that sell some parts on line. I just bought a fuel cap from Australia.

There is another three wheel truck which used to be very popular in Greece (they were assemblied here actually), the T1500. From that truck there are some survivors at the greek islands. But I am not planning to save one of those due to lack of space and money.

I posted at the Carol thread that mediocre picture of a 1964 Carol in Greece. I might find a couple more of the same quality from that period of time, but in Greece there is no survivor to my knowledge.

Although I think there are not a lot of persons interested, I post some photos, mostly for mazda's history reasons.

The person who sold me the T600 found some parts, which I bought for 300 euros.


In this pic you can see the base-a holder- for the spare tire which was put behind the driver (......out of the cabin of course). The kind of holder is not presented at the k360/t600 japanese site at geocities.


Image


he found the original plastic windows. So, besides the windscreen, the windows of the doors and the rear window were of plastic.

Image


Here are the hubcaps and original bases of mirrors


Image

Image

Image


Image


other small things


Image


Image



They used ........yamaha mirrors

Image


Image


Image


here is the original cover of the starter, which was missing from the car

Im not sure on the mirrors, look suspiciously alike to the ones I had on my old DT250 which was a good 10-15 years newer than this thing (was a 77).

Yes, you are quite right. Those Yamaha mirrors were used on the truck some-alot years after. The original mirrors were shown at another photo (only the "base" of the mirror). I just underlined the fact that they used a bike's mirrors.

Looks in pretty good nick for an old beast.

Good luck with the restore. Would be interested to see how it all goes. Make sure you post up plenty of pics of during and after.
