    1970 Subaru 360 Van

    Here is my latest addition to the small car family. We have others in the Mazda section.

    Subaru's were imported to the USA in the late 60's by Malcom Bricklin. They were left hand drive, mine was bought from a nice lady who used it for daily transportation for 20 years! In her later years she became afraid to drive it in traffic. Scares me too!

    Nice van! I have a 360 sedan. You get used to driving it traffic after a while, I just avoid 4 lane highways etc. and don't take it on long trips.
    If you haven't already, check out www.subaru360club.org

    Is it me, or does it look like it runs a lot of positive camber at the back?!

    Great van! I bet inside it feels a lot bigger than it looks from the outside.

    They do have weird positive camber, check this brochure for the Sambar out: http://my.reset.jp/~inu/ProductsDataBas ... SAMBAR.htm

    The 360's do have a lot of positive camber in the back. Once you get in and there is some weight in the car it gets much better. It's really noticable if you jack it up and then let it down, you have to roll it back and forth and bounce it before it settles.

    They have a swing axle in the back with no outer u joint so the camber changes a lot with suspension movement.
