1961 Other Makes Trimobile Standard

This is a 1961 Daihatsu Trimobile. In 1959 Daihatsu opened a dealer in California in hopes to promote their great new product. The Trimobile! Sales were a flop. This is a 1959 model that properly didn't sell till 1961. It has a clear title matching the car dating 1961. It came from California in the 80's as you see it and has been inside ever since. It looks to be complete but will need to a restoration to be perfect. This is one of somewhere between 12-50 shipped to America. It had the American badges, Mph on the speedometer, and drives on the correct side. It is tiny. With the 59 cadillacs and impalas, these did not translate well into the American culture. Pickup in south jersey within 3 weeks of purchase. Rolls great and brakes work. I can help load. 856-498-0637. No calls after 7pm eastern time please.
