1978 MSX XC8 4.2D 2X4

M-Speed
The XC8 was first introduced in 1978 and is still in production today with the same body, chassis and rear suspension. The RWD model's double wishbone independant front suspension was a major advance for large pickup trucks, and even the live axle/coil springs front end on the 4WD was better than the competition. There was a choice of 4.0l petrol or 4.2 (non turbo) diesel inline 6s or a 5.9l V8. The standard gearbox was a 4 speed manual. The diesel engine in this 1978 example produces 106hp@3500rpm and 251Nm@2000rpm. There was also 4 wheel disc brakes. It had standard vinyl seats and an AM radio (FM optional)
