Lightbulb Second generation Sambar (1966 - 1972)





The second generation New Sambar was launched and also went on sale at an event staged at Tokyo Kaikan in Marunouchi, Tokyo on January 8, 1966.

The New Sambar had a fresh body style and a wide array of improvements.

The Sambar truck’s rear deck was only 355 millimeters off the ground, making it the lowest among light trucks at that time, and it was also 20% larger than before. The detachable side gate made loading and unloading more easier; the two-stage wide-floor truck adopted a waterproof locker (fitted with key) that could be opened from either side on the lower deck, while the flat upper deck had flaps on three sides, thereby enhancing the vehicle’s capacity to carry various loads. The rear deck space was 3.62 square meters, making it the largest among light trucks at that time. Through expanding the side door to a width of 960 millimeters and adopting a spacious new design cabin, the New Sambar has better loading capability and riding comfort than before. Moreover, through adopting a low step and wider door opening area, it was easier for driver and passengers to board and alight. The fuel tank capacity was expanded from 20 liters to 23 liters, the largest in the light truck class at that time, and the vehicle was able to travel 500 kilometers on a full tank.

In 1970, the modified “Baban” Sambar went on sale. While continuing the riding comfort and user friendliness of its forerunners, this model was mounted with a high-performance engine and semi-trailing arm rear suspension, resulting in far better driving performance. Moreover, the triangular windows were abolished and rear-opening doors were adopted with a view to enhancing functionality and safety. The truck rear deck was also improved for better loading performance, and a semi-opening locking device was adopted on the rear gate. The New Sambar series that went on sale in March 1971 had a revamped front design. A color-differentiated grille was placed around the ventilation, giving a bolder design than before. Moreover, ventilation outlets were added to the doors to ensure that fresh air flowed constantly inside the cabin. The Sambar Panel Van and the Sambar Light Van SDX were on sale in July and September of that year respectively. The “Strong” Sambar series that went on sale in February 1972 adopted a large front grille and bold front face design, and a side grille equipped with winker was added to the airflow ventilation outlets at the top of the doors. Moreover, suspension was further reinforced in order to better cope with tough driving and loading conditions. Furthermore, the letter “H” was added as a mark to trucks (flat) fitted with reinforced torsion bar and oil damper.
