As you all probably know by now, I currently have 2 Applauses so I thought I might as well document as much as possible while I own the cars. As I gain more information I’ll put it in this thread and place a link on this post in an organised fashion.
What generation Applause do I have?
Early models up until 1992 typically have the DAIHATSU logo in text with a grille that extends the length in between the headlights, these are called a Gen 1. There is Theta models that were made up until 1992 but I don’t know much about them.
Later models up until 1997? feature the (D) logo inside a chrome insert that fits inside the front grille metal and is removable, there are Gen 2s
Gen 3 have a completely different front, rear and interior to the previous generations. They also feature rear drum brakes. Production of these stopped in the early 2000s
