Look, Jerry's Got a New Car!

subaru360.gifSubaru’s Japanese website now sports a museum section, detailing the lives of 5 historic models, the 1958 Subaru 360 “people’s car”, stillborn 1954 P-1 1500, 1960 Sambar 360-based commercial vehicle, front-wheel-drive 1966 1000, and the popular 1969 R2.

A history page also follows the parent company’s from prop-plane builder Nakajima Airplane, Inc. in 1917 to post-war Fuji Heavy Industries, humble purveyor of rally-dominating all-wheel-drive horseless carriages.

Sadly, all the text is in Japanese but there’s a decent collection of monochrome pics to peep.
