A rare look at the Isuzu Unicab

Its not even a dream- no, that would mean that it is attainable.  Its more of a fantasy: the Isuzu Unicab. Never sold in the US, and rare as hen's teeth everywhere else, this VW Thing-like answer to the Willys Jeep is Isuzu's militarische little buggy that was sold in the late 1960s/early 1970s (in Japan and I think only a few other Asian countries). These images were gathered by me from various sources on the Internet.


I just love the fold down windscreen. This would be a really fun desert trail vehicle.
Drooooool.
If anyone has better, hi-res scans of this brochure, please email me.
Here is an oddball image found via a Google image search.
Looks to be a restored Unicab, probably in Japan.
This Unicab was for sale on an Indonesian car site. A very nice example of a surviving Unicab. It looks to possibly have a small lift and bigger tires.
Here are some press photos of the Unicab.
