The Niki’s major selling point was its cheap price, which was reflected in its standard equipment, which included drum brakes all ‘round, flipper quarter windows, and a non-synchro four-speed gearbox. No radio, no air conditioning and not even a ciggie lighter!
Few sold, but at least one has survived and gone on to better things, thanks to Sydney’s Banks family. The boys have completely re-jigged their Niki for drag strip action, complete with an EFI Holden V8, big rubber and a full roll cage. And soon it will cop twin turbos!
