Champ vs Standard

Standard 1400 Bakkie has the no frills, hard working muscle you need, it gets the job done.

Standard 1400

Champ gives you that little extra without compromising its under-the-skin durability. Rugged, sporty styling is emphasised by spotlamps, decals, blackouts and tinted windscreen. Inside you'll feel the comfort of individual bucket seats, cloth upholstery, a rev counter and a soft grip steering wheel.
