TLV-51 Mazda T2000

I tried searching the web for the history of the Mazda T2000 but I always ended up with the Mazda Mazdago.



The Mazdago's a three-wheeled open truck produced in 1931 that resembled a motorcycle with an open wagon or truck bed. It was considered to be the first autorickshaw. Over the years, it would be produced in different variants and other similar designs such as the Mazda K360 and T2000.

I'm really impressed with Tomytech on how they produced this highly detailed 1/64 scaled model.

    1. T2000 should be a 2.0 Liter engine, given how the model corresponded to engine size.

  4. Nice model and great pix!!
    These trucks are quite big and came in a short-bed and long-bed version. There was one for sale on eBay recently in the USA of all places! Check out the Blog at JapaneseNostalgicCar.com and search for T2000 ;)
