Micro Trucks: Tiny Utility Vehicles from Around the World Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Interest and fascination in these novel cars has meant that Micro vehicles have become significant collectibles over the past decade, yet information published on micro trucks has been almost non-existent. Old brochures printed by numerous micro car builders depict various truck versions available. In the case of Iso everything from hook and ladder to vans to pickups were featured, but in many cases no examples were thought to have been built beyond the prototype stage. Full color photography, text and specs describe never before seen Iso production micro trucks, as well as featuring the changes necessitated in converting the production Iso Isetta into a micro truck. Rare Topolino Fiat vans ready for full restoration are also shown. Whereas very few 1950 Fiat 500 Topolino C Furgone models exist, there is only one known 1948 Fiat 500 Topolino B Furgone believed to have survived. For micro car enthusiasts wanting to expand their collection this volume includes the more commonly available micro trucks from Autobianchi, Vespa and Diahatsu along with helpful hints on restoration. Illustrated with 91 color photos, many of them of micro trucks you've probably never seen before.
