The developers in Japan were - at this time from the Ministry of International T rade and Industry by tax incentives - constricted in the form of strict rules. Thus the external dimensions and, for example the displacement are prescribed. After all, within these narrow limits still is created a nice car, when Japanese design standards being considered. A lot of work and effort is put into the details.

Four years should have taken the development to the start of production. At this time, of course one can offer at 360 cc onlya two-stroke engine, in order to reach the higher areas in Japan. After all, later emerge versions with 18 kW (25 hp) and even 26 kW (36 hp).

With the body mixes old and new. The bad wipers equipment for co-driver is still today in Japanese cars. However, 1958, bring out a car with rear-hinged doors (suicide doors), this already requires courage or ignorance of the European market. For this is the with rubber lips attached roof (picture) made of fiberglass reinforced plastic almost revolutionary. GM only uses it in the series for the Corvette. 04/09
