Question type: General

i recently bought 2 iraqi taxi's
1 has a 3 spd manual tran
1 has a 4 spd manual tran

if the legend is true and 25k were made, and 12k stayed in canada, how many were
originally made with 4 spd manual tran?

iv heard 8000 went to halifax, 4000 stayed in oshawa, and i also heard iraq had
problems with the 3 spd manual...

i found both of my cars in ontario.

I have an original 1981 Iraqabu with only 46,000 KM on it. I also have an original review done by a newspaper in Oshawa at the time they were made available in Canada. It noted that of the 23,000 originally made only 5,000 we NOT shipped to Iraq but sold on the Canadian marketplace. It also noted that ALL were built with Iraqi added specs to include heavy duty cooling, undercoating and 3 speed manual.
