Italian Style, Japanese Build, Midwest Rust: 1971 Mazda 1800 Luce

The Lancia Fulvia Tipo 818 is a classic Italian saloon available from 1964-1976 as a Berlina, Coupe, and Sport…and this isn’t one of them. This is a Mazda 1800 Luce built in Japan, but designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Bertone Design Group. Today’s example is not the best shape example you can find, but beggars can’t be choosers, and a beggar can afford this one. Find this 1971 Mazda 1800 Luce offered for $4,700 in Chicago, IL via craigslist.
