Today I stopped into a fast food joint to grab a bite to eat and this odd little pickup truck pulled up right next to me. Let's see who can tell us all WTF is that thang. I'll give you one hint... it's from an auto manufacturer that is still in business today and it was made in 1966.

hmm well i need to make a correction-- it has a straight engine, not a boxer. furthermore, some sites claim it is a variant of the 1500 model, but the ones that (to me) appear more legitimate say it is NOT a 1500- which was a separate subaru line.

Is it air cooled? Interesting vents in the back. Its proportions kind of remind me of a modern Daihatsu. Saw tons of them in the Philippines a few years back. Ray

I would say it is air cooled, buy the large vent on the side of the engine compartment. Unless that is where the radiator it.
That is also the model they make the fake split buses out of in Japan.

It looks like you made an escape from an amusement park ride.

The one with the lookalike 37 Ford grille, I believe, is a King Midget.
