Subaru Sambar Dias – 09/18 arrival, please give us a week to check this out and prepare for sale.

More from Wikipedia …The fifth generation Sambar was introduced in 1990. Engine regulations for displacement size were increased and the Sambar’s engine was upgraded to 660 cc. For the 4WD version it sold as Subaru Dias Wagon as a permanent trim model. Commercials in Japan used Kuniko Yamada, a Japanese comedian.

The tradition of using the engine in Subaru’s kei car offering, the Subaru Vivio’s engine was shared in this version, the EN07. The engines piston amount increased to four cylinders and 55 PS (54 bhp) was available with an optional supercharger and intercooler package, coupled with fuel injection. An automatic transmission was offered in the form of Subaru’s ECVT system in tandem with full-time 4WD and a viscous coupling differential.

Daihatsu Midget II K100P in excellent condition inside and out. Equipped with a 660cc 3-cylinder engine and 4-speed transmission. Engine has been de-tuned for this application and Has AC which blows cold. Would make a very neat pit vehicle or have fun around your property. Or just buy for the novelty value.

The Midget is a Lightweight Work Vehicle with a 660cc 3-cylinder engine de-rated from the factory from 55HP (in other applications) to 30HP in order to deliver low-speed torque and to suit the power requirements.

The Midget is a very innovative light delivery vehicle. Distinctive for having front-mounted spare tire and 2-doors but only one seat in normal configuration (optional jump seat available for some configurations). Popular car to modify for advertising or to suit owner’s distinctive taste. Intended primarily for use in industrial parks and other off-highway applications.

Micro Vans!

It has been a busy couple of weeks here at the shop what with getting new inventory at the shop and then selling like crazy.  I wanted to talk today about the little micro vans we have in the shop.  Using basically the same platform and engine (660cc) as the little trucks, these micro vans are really useful little vehicles and, with their covered cargo area, really nice for the Pacific Northwest during the rainy months.  We have two which we would consider more the cargo type of van and two which are thought of as family vans in Japan.  One of the cargo vans is a 1991 rear wheel drive Honda Acty.  This one is equipped with double sliding rear doors (as all micro vans have), four-speed transmission and a/c.  I consider this more of a “cargo” van since it has the vinyl interior and rubber floor mats so hauling things around is not [...]
