I'm doing a project and though my book "The Complete History of the Japanese Car" has an illustration and caption on the car, it doesn't give much info and I can't find anything on the net.
The caption reads:
The car is a short wheelbase five-window, two (suicide) door sedan with a split windshield. The grille is rectangular in shape, with horizontal chrome slats. There are chrome vents on the sides of the engine cover and the headlight units are chrome.MAZDA - 1940
Mazda built its first automobile in 1960, but the possibility of entering the sector had already been considered before the war, a small prototype sedan (shown here) being produced in 1940. The outbreak of war prevented the company from starting mass production and this was hampered after the end of hostilities by the general veto imposed on automobile production by the occupying American forces.
Does anyone have any more info on this, or even better, a photo of it?
