Is it an Isuzu Florian or a Bellette? That looks like an isuzu Diesel engine there,

It is an Isuzu diesel. It is neither a Florian, nor a Bellet.

Is this a C190 in an early LUV? Or as isuzu called it in Japan the Rodeo from the 70s?

I don't know a lot about this thing. It came to me via a phone call. I would not have purchased it had it not been a diesel.

It is for sale. I just didn't want it to go to the scrap yard. So if anyone is interested, or knows someone interested in these, send me a pm.

There is a gentleman in Reno, NV that recently interviewed a fellow in Japan that restores these. It may be headed back to Japan. ??

I believe it's a 1963. The engine and tranny are there. Needs a radiator and a heater core/vent box. Interior is toast. When I have a bit of time, I'll see if the engine is free or siezed.

I like it, but have neither the time, money or skill to restore it.

Help me find it a permanent, loving home.

Almost forgot. It came with the original pink slip, original documentation regarding it's history, and original workshop manuals. I'll get more photos posted as time allows.

I bet a C223 would fit in there nicely!
