Putting the “Kei” in Pickup

When it comes to making small vehicles for all occasions, the Japanese Auto Industry of the late ’50s and early ’60s really had it dialled in. From tiny little micro sedans and vans to itty-bitty Kei-class pickup trucks, Mazda, Daihatsu and their ilk had the emerging Japanese consumerist public covered!

One of the stranger (at least to North American eyes) products was a series of three-wheeled light-duty pickup/utility vehicles. Of these, the Mazda K360 was one of the more popular. Despite this, up until 2020, the only kit you could get of this little frog-like cycle-truck was the 1/32 Arii (LS) Mazda K360. If you want to see something quite a bit different, then check this one out on the Out of Box page.
