The Subaru Sambar was an ultra compact pickup truck, (and van), introduced in 1961. This vehicle was ungodly tiny. You could fit one of these in the bed of a modern day longbed pickup. (The Sambar was only 4 feet wide, and just short of 9 feet in length). It was driven by a 2 cylinder air cooled engine, (the same one used in the Subaru 360 Minicar). 12" wheels and a 3 speed manual transmission completed the package. The Sambar was produced until the early 1970's. It's low price and great gas mileage kept its sales high until then.
