    Is this the rotary-powered bus Mazda manufactured?

    That would be the Parkway. This was simply known as the Mazda Light Bus. No idea why Mitsubishi owned one though. However, you can see Mitsubishi logos on old three-wheeled Mazdas as well, when they were sold under license.

    I've got some brochures somewhere with some nice early Mazda buses in it (including this one), pretty rad designs. This one if full Dr. No...I can just see the henchmen pouring out of it!

    Thanks for posting it!

    Cheers,

    Mazda made these light buses in the 1960s. The bus in the background is the AEVA (A) and the bus in the foreground is the AEVA (C). They were powered by a 2 liter 4 cylinder engine making 81 hp. Both were about 19 ft long and could sit 25 "Comfortable adults" and 45 "Uncomfortable adults".
    The Parkway rotary was produced 1974-1977 and powered by the 13B engine.

    ^ Where was that Light Bus ad from? I didn't know they sold them outside of Japan.
