Kei Twins: A 1973 Mitsubishi Minica Skipper IV, and A 1970 Minica GSS

July 17, 2016

So, I've cobbled together some footage and old photographs of a pair of sporty Kei cars from Mitsubishi. One is a 1970 Minica 70 GSS, and the other is a 1973 Minica Skipper S.

This Minica coupe was built in 1973. It has a 359cc inline 2 engine.
