Isuzu N-Series 3rd Generation Elf – Throwback Thursday

The 1975 Third Generation Isuzu Elf

The third generation Elf arrived in June 1975, in Elf 150 and 250 forms. It was nicknamed “Tora-san” after Kiyoshi Atsumi’s (a famous Japanese actor) most beloved film character which supposedly looked similar. In January 1977 a 250 Low-Flat model was added, followed in 1978 by a facelift and an altered front grille. In 1979 a bigger 3.3 liter version of the 2-tonne (4,400 lb) Elf 250 was introduced, called the “Elf 250 Super”. There was also a “Elf 150 Super” version, which has the larger, 2.4 liter C240 diesel engine which was usually installed in the Elf 250.

3o years of making the best and most reliable medium duty trucks in the industry

We thought a tribute to the Isuzu N-Series (Elf) from 1984 would be appropriate. Here’s a cool old picture of a 1984 Isuzu Elf (N-series) truck. Then known as the 4th generation Elf, double cab, wide body. They were great then and they’re still great today! We also included the Isuzu 30th anniversary logo.
