TLV-60 Mitsubishi Leo

The Leo, which was launched in 1959, was Mitsubishi's first ever K-car. A 3-wheeled vehicle, available in both truck and van styles, it had a load carrying capacity of 300kg and became popular for the delivery of goods mainly in cities.

When production stopped in 1962, about 28,000 Leos had been produced and sold. The twin head lamps and all steel cabin were characteristic of the Leo. Though unconfirmed, there are still five units of the Leo in Japan today.
