Isuzu Bellett

The bellett project started with a very shabby looking shell imported from Australia. With the organisers of the Goodwood Revival meeting keen to have such an unusual car on the entry list CSR had just seven weeks to perform the restoration.

Key points carried out by CSR on this project included:

  • Renovate shell
  • Rebuilt and modified suspension
  • Installed rollcage
  • Lightened where possible
  • Engine and gearbox rebuilds

CSR run the car for the owner including, storing, transporting, preparing and servicing.
