Brosura Dacia, 1974 / Dacia brochure, 1974

Un pliant in limba engleza cu Dacia 1300. Desi nedatat, pliantul dateaza din 1974, primul an in care Dacia 1300 Break a fost amenajata ca autosanitara (Dacia 1300S), si ultimul an in care s-au folosit capacele de roti in stilul celor din pagina 4. Un fapt interesant e ca unele din poze (spre exemplu, cele de pe pagina 3) nu sunt totusi din 1974 ci din 1969, aratand masini cu specific 1969: 1300 sub stopul drept, capace roti Renault 12, semnaliatoare pe aripi, lipsa de crom pe portbagaj, lipsa de vipusca peste aerisire, s.a.m.d.. O alta imagine interesanta e cea cu Dacia 1301 lux super, poza care arata incontrovertibil ca Dacia 1301 a avut, cel putin la inceput, scaunele suprainaltate de Renault 12 TS. (Un fapt de mult disputat de istoriografi Dacia....) In acea perioada Dacia se vindea, printre alte tari, si in Grecia si Algeria.

English-language Dacia 1300 brochure. Although undated, it is possible to say it's from 1974, the first year in which the 1300 estate was also sold as the Dacia 1300S ambulance, and the last year for the type of hubcaps seen on page 4. Some of the photos (eg those on page 3), however, are not from 1974 but rather 1969 and show chracterisitcs of the (very rare) 1969-model cars: 1300 written under the right-hand tail light, Renault 12 hubcaps, wing-mounted indicators, no chrome on the leading boot edge, no crease on the C-pillar, etc. Another interesting photograph is that of the 1301 Lux-Super. The photo shows without doubt that at least the earliest versions had the higher front seats of the Renault 12 TS. (A keen point of debate among Dacia historians...) In this period, the Dascia 1300 was being sold, among others, in Greece and Algeria.


  1. Ca posesor de Dacia 1300 (chiar din 1974), gasesc acest articol si pozele foarte interesante.
