The Suzuki Mighty Boy
Historic Suzuki: The MightyBoy
Today's Suzuki of yesteryear is a bit on the obscure side (but that's how I like it). Called the "MightyBoy", it sold from 1983-1988 and was essentially a Suzuki Cervo coupe with a pickup/utility bed instead of a hatch area or rear seat. As a true "Kei" car, the 'Boy had a 534 cc SOHC 3-cylinder engine mated to either a 4-speed manual or 2-speed automatic.
Roof rails and bars that dropped down into the utility area made the MightyBoy a versatile little hauler for those who wanted to carry more than a hatch would allow without getting into a Kei truck. It was also a mini-Ute for the Australians (who value car-based pickups like the Holden Ute even today), and aside from Cyprus theirs was the only market to see the MightyBoy sold outside of Japan.
