In North America The '180B and 200B' were lengthened between front wheel and the front of the doors to accommodate an L24 and were called an 810. The 180B and 200B also had a long dogleg 5 speed option, or it was standard equipment on the twin S.U. SSS model. (correct me if wrong)

in the UK we had the 160B and 180B and 180Bsss (2 door coupe twin su with dogleg 5 speed) we also got a wagon. we never got the L6 engine version sadly.

The 200B was Australian market only.

 

 

the 810 also came with Live axle (H190) and IRS (r160)

my 180B is IRS and 200B is live axle

Sweet ride man....I used to own 180B coupe fast back type body Red with black interior and that was in Kuwait in the early 80's.

Some nice right way to restore a car.
