The 1965 Hino Contessa 1300 Coupe was a two-door compact car produced by the Japanese automaker, Hino Motors. It was the sportier version of the Contessa lineup and featured a more stylish exterior design than its sedan counterpart.

Under the hood, the Contessa 1300 Coupe was powered by a 1.3-liter, four-cylinder engine that produced 60 horsepower. It was capable of reaching a top speed of 84 miles per hour and could go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in around 20 seconds.

Inside, the Contessa 1300 Coupe featured a clean and simple dashboard layout with a speedometer, fuel gauge, and temperature gauge. It also had a four-speed manual transmission, bucket seats, and a fold-down rear seat for increased cargo space.

The 1965 Hino Contessa 1300 Coupe was praised for its nimble handling and comfortable ride, making it a popular choice for urban driving in Japan. It was also exported to other markets, including the United States, where it was sold under the brand name of Hino Briska.
