FF1 and 1400 RX rally cars

Recommended Posts

Dude! Awesome find! Those are some of the sexiest Gen1 Soobies I've ever seen. And there are LOTS of non-Sooby cars in there that I lust after.

 

+1 for wishing I could save the pics, or at least make them bigger.

If the leone series 1400 was the start of the gen 1 cars what do we call the FF1's, or shall we shuffle the numbers up one

I have a Japanese magazine from December 1996 called 'Nostalgic Hero' that has an article on the very same green 1400 RX coupe. The magazine is written in Japanese so I cannot read it :-\ (oh well the pictures look cool!). However the coupe is from 1975 and has the EA63S twin carb motor. Most of the interior is stripped (no carpet, rear seats etc) so obviously it has been sent up for rally. It also has odd wheels, those on the front do not match the back!

Perhaps the gen 1 tag refers to the first of the L series or Leone? I remember reading somewhere that FF1 stood for Front Drive Formula 1, but I not sure I believe that!

I suppose it does look blue in these photos, but trust me it is dark green! Wish I could put the photos I have from the magazine here, but that is not going to happen anytime soon!

You should try to scan that article so we can add it to the USC.
