The second generation of the Mazda Familia was introduced in Europe as the 1200 in 1968 and was replaced by the 1300 in 1970. It proved to be quite a popular import car and many found their way to the European roads in the early '70s. Even if it was a common sight up to the '80s it was mainly the 2 and 4 door sedans that established the Mazda name on the European continent. The 2-door coupe was rare and I can't recall ever seeing one before.
Most Mazdas 1200/1300 were unceremoniously scrapped so it's surprising to find a coupe in nearly pristine condition. And it's an original Dutch car, first registered in October 1974, so I guess it stood a good long while at some dealer's before it found a proud owner.
