Ever heard of the Daihatsu Charmant. A four-door saloon with just as honest a name as the Mitsubishi Carisma, the Charmant was in essence a reskinned, rear-drive Toyota Corolla. As Toyota moved on to FWD with the new-for-1984 Corolla (the afore-posted AE86 line notwithstanding). the RWD fort was left for Daihatsu to defend.

This means every Daihatsu Charmant ad – yes, there are still some left to sell – at some point features a mention of the Corolla mechanicals. The dirty bits in this one are even refreshed, as it’s received a new engine in 2000. Click through to see the rest of the info.

The engine is said to have been replaced by Tammer-Diesel, a long-serving diesel specialist in Tampere, and the bootlid features a suspicious-sounding LD badge, but the car is a gasoline-engined one with the 1300cc 4K engine producing 70-something horses. The new engine only has a couple thousand km’s on it, accumulated HUNTING FOR MOOSE. as the ad claims. How badass is that? Imagine drifting through gravel roads with a trunkful of rifles.

All in all, the car only has some 85k on the clock, which does sound oddly early for a replacement engine to be needed. Then again, my grandfather’s brown 1980 Corolla had a taste for motor oil, which probably contributed to the demise in this Daihatsu, too. Or it could have 185k, as the odo only has five digits on it – whatever the real deal is. Anyway, the plates indicate it’s a coveted Lapland car, which means it’s not too rusty anywhere it counts.

The fake wood does add class to the Charm-ant, as does the possibility of two radio installs. There are only four forward speeds, though, and the instrumentation is definitely spartan.

Does the Charmant win you over with its recently hiked-up price of 2000 eur? It’s just passed inspection recently, which probably has caused the seller to reconsider his price. Still, there’s probably haggling to be done.
