    Very cool 1970 Mazda Bus... with Mitsu badge on the front?

    http://www.goo-net-exchange.com/usedcar ... index.html









    Spotted this incredibly cool Mazda bus, but it has a Mitsubishi badge on the front. I'm curious what the story is here, or if it's in the writing around it. A joint arrangement? A body built by one with a powertrain from the other? Owned/operated by some branch of Mitsubishi? Or does that symbol represent something else entirely in this context?

    Anyone care to chime in? Whatever it is, it's undeniably cool, and I'd have it over any Skyline right now, haha.

    Looks like a Mazda Light Bus Type A. But no idea why the Mitsubishi badge is there.

    Curious... :?

    Evidently it was used by Mitsubishi Oil...

    I believe a user from here pointed that out in the comments when it was posted on Bring a Trailer.

    Ah, it was on BAT? Didn't know. And that explains that, haha.
