Lightbulb Third Generation Sambar (1973 - 1982)









Having undergone a full model change, the third generation Sambar series went on sale on October 2, 1973. Equipped with a new type water-cooled two-cycle 360 cc engine, the new model earned the nickname “Goriki Sambar”.

In January 1976, the light car standards underwent revision and were expanded to length of 3.20 meters, width of 1.40 meters and displacement of 550 cc. In line with this, the new standard “Sambar 5” series went on sale in May 1976. The engine was upgraded from the conventional air-cooled two-cycle model to a water-cooled four-cycle two-cylinder 490 cc/28PS model. In May 1977, making full use of the new regulations, the “Sambar 550”, which had a larger body size and a new water-cooled two-cylinder 544 cc/28PS engine with much higher low- and medium-speed torque, went on sale.
The truck rear deck was expanded by 80 millimeters in width and 5 millimeters in floor length to become 1,330 millimeters wide x 2,010 millimeters floor length, giving it the largest capacity in the class (as of May 1977). Two years later in October 1979, a model having the first ever high-roof specifications in the light cab van class was added to the lineup.

This model had a cargo room height of 1,425 millimeters, which even exceeded that of a compact car high-roof. Then, in November 1980, the Sambar 4WD equipped with 2WD (RR) and 4WD changeover 4WD mechanism went on sale.

During the nine years in which the third generation Sambar was produced, not only did the Sambar enhance its performance for business uses but, exploiting the large cargo room volume of the van, it greatly extended its possibilities as a leisure vehicle.
