 Daihatsu Hijet L-35
image
Three-wheeled light trucks had contributed to revolutionary progress in small-lot distribution, and the Hijet L-35 was produced to build upon that history and lead the way in the transition to higher-grade four-wheeled trucks.
The lubrication system for the two-cycle engine became the basis for the separate lubrication system that was later called the Oilmatic, and it was widely used for two-cycle engines.
