1989 Daihatsu Hijet Dumbo

The 1989 Dumbo was a boxy concept van based on the production HiJet mircovan. Although the Hijet Dumbo is still the same "brick," it is difficult to say it has a conventional or inconspicuous design. The compact car was first presented at the 1989 Tokyo Motor Show. Since the concept was originally sharpened to fit the norms of a kei car, it was based on the serial Hijet with a 660 cc engine.

The idea behind the Hijet Dumbo is a tea ceremony car (the floor is entirely flat with curtains to create the mood), but it can also be used as a workhorse.
