DAIHATSU COMPAGNO

2-door saloon station wagon, spyder.

Nicely made but ordinary little car with separate chassis, drum brakes, torsion-bar front suspension and semi-elliptics at the rear. Just about good for 70mph with the smaller engine. The first Japanese car ever marketed in Britain: British buyers got a built-in radio for their £798... but did any ever make it off the show stands to the roads?
