1600 with D/R in anything is rare(read, not factory). It probably is the result of some creative fabrication. I could be wrong but I have never heard of a D/R behind any 1600. Does it have the center or side mount starter?

Hi Ken This is Jerry, Pat's brat is factory. It has the same set up as the 78 he has but 80 has the dual range tranny in it. It is the Ea71 motor has it by the dissy. and the starter is dead center top of bellhouseing. I have another friend that lives in Naches he has 20-30 gen 1 brats and he has 1 with a dual range tranny in it also with the EA71 engine. Thanks Jerry

hey jerry if that other d/r needs a new home I would like it :D heck I will barter for it even

Edit: in fact it would make my mystery machine even more of a mystery hehe

lets see first off the 76 is not even in the records for SOA and second off the motor that is in it is a EA-65 which is the wrong year for the first thing and also a motor that was never offered here in the states so a early gen1 d/r would fit nicely in that equation :D

In 81 they had the 1800 BRAT engine with the starter on top, and the dual range tranny. Probably the same transmission as the 1981 BRAT. I could see how they could have just put them in a year earlier. I think they take the same clutch assembly as the 1600 but don't quote me on that.

1981 the Dual Range was introduced in 3 models, all with 1800 engine

81 Brat GL
81 4WD wagon GL
81 4WD hatchback GL

the 1980 Parts Manual only shows 1 trans for the Brat.

Pat, see if you can find any numbers on the trans. could be a different import like bajas wagon....

Baja, you have a tranny out of a BRAT or other 81 vehicle. I parted out a 81 BRAT about 5 years ago, I will have to go look at the tranny but I thought for sure that it was top mount starter.
