This 1978 Mazda GLC Hatchback is quite a rare find. And one in this condition with just 7,391 miles is just unheard of. Or is it? While this is not a particularly collectible, special or even desirable car, it has a unique place (as every car has) in the history of cars. I think this is a cool little ride, and for those of you who love hatchbacks of every kind, as I do, you have just four days to bid on Nelson Ortiz's car on eBay.
The Great Little Car or GLC debuted for 1977 as a standout in the rear wheel drive subcompact crowd and was the forth generation manufactured by Mazda between 1964 and 2003.
For the United States, the GLC, advertised as the Great Little Car, was only offered with one engine at a time.
The first Mazda GLC was a version of the fourth-generation Japan-market Mazda Familia.
It was available in several body variants:
• Five-door four-seat hatch.
• Three-door four-seat hatch.
• Five-door four-seat station wagon.
• Three-door four-seat station wagon.
• Three-door two-seat van with an extended roof profile.
Several of these were available in several trim levels.
• 1.0 L PC, 45 hp (33.6 kW)/51 ft·lbf (69 N·m)
• 1.3 L TC (1977–1978)
• 1.4 L UC (1979–1980)
Later, a five-speed manual gearbox was introduced as an alternative to the original four-speed manual gearbox. At the same time the original 7 in (17.8 cm) round sealed beam headlights were replaced with square sealed beam units on all models except the van, together with a general styling and mechanical upgrade. A three-speed automatic gearbox was also available throughout the model run.
