1988 Daihatsu Hijet
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

The Daihatsu Hijet is a Kei truck sold by the Japanese automaker Daihatsu since the 1960’s. “Hijet”, when translated into Japanese, is very similar to “Midget”, one of Daihatsu’s other mini truck offerings. According to Daihatsu, the name “Hijet” was created to imply that the vehicle offers higher performance than the Daihatsu Midget. The Hijet competes in the Japanese Kei truck market with the Honda Acty, Subaru Sambar, Mitsubishi Minica and the Suzuki Carry.
The Daihatsu Hijet is a long standing icon of reliability and usability in Japan. These are most commonly used on farms, golf courses, college campuses, construction sites or just for recreation. When compared to traditional UTV and ATVs, mini-trucks are generally slightly larger, offer more cargo volume and can accommodate impressive payload capacities. Known to punch well above it’s weight, this Hijet features OEM rainguards, 3 way fold down & removable sides for access or flatbed and a 4 speed manual transmission.
Mini trucks have been popular in Japan for decades and now that they are eligible to import to the United States it’s no surprise to see a huge rise in demand here domestically. A vehicle that is as practical as it is fun to drive, we have seen many of these start to appear at local car meets with new and innovative modifications. On the other hand many people are starting to use these as work trucks. They are a great run around town pick up, able to park in tight spaces, have tremendous fuel economy and are a great advertisement for small businesses.
With an astounding 11,761 original miles this Hijet is literally just getting warmed up for it’s next owner!
