1972 *Kei-tora* (Kei-Truck) Subaru Sambar - 2StrokeTurbo Shoutout

February 26, 2014

Again, I was going through the archives and rediscovered this pair of 2nd generation Subaru Sambars. They could've been produced in the same year but they are actually quite different.

This Sambar Pickup was built in 1970. It has a 356cc inline 2 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
