1966 Isuzu Bellel

The elegant design of the initial Bellel gives way in October 1965 to a much heavier style, with quad headlights fitted vertically at the front, as its rival the Nissan Cedric. The rear is not left untouched either, the original, but somehow disliked triangular taillights being now replaced by very plain rectangular units mounted horizontally on the rear panel.
