History:

The original Daihatsu Midget featured a single seat, a doorless cab, and handlebar steering. In 1957 the DK Midget was introduced. The engine was an air-cooled 2-stroke design of 250 cc which produced 10 hp (7 kW).

In 1959 the MP Midget was introduced - updated with such features as a steering wheel, doors, and seating for two. The engine was an air-cooled 2-stroke design of 305 cc which produced 12 hp (9 kW).

Subsequent revisions to the MP design were made, resulting in the model MP4 (which featured a larger cargo bed than the original model) and finally the MP5 (which introduced automatic oil mixing for the 2 stroke engine) which remained in production until 1972.

By 1972 336,534 units had been produced, and production was terminated because of the falling popularity of three wheeled models to more modern four wheeled models.

The Daihatsu Midget I has also been sold outside Japan as the '' Bajaj ", "Tri-Mobile", or "Bemo". It is one of the first cars manufactured by the Japanese automaker Daihatsu, known for its low cost, practical vehicles. Almost exclusively used as an autorickshaw (or 'tuk-tuk') the Midget was also a well known icon of public transportation in South Asia. Not meant for performance, this obscure vehicle does weave through larger traffic well, despite the fact that it only has three wheels. These original tuk tuk are a little harder to find nowadays and are of course collectable.

Daihatsu Midget 2

From 1996 to 2001, Daihatsu manufactured a four wheeled kei Midget with four-wheel drive or air conditioning as options. As Kei cars, they were equipped with 660 cc engines.

The Daihatsu Midget 2 was introduced as a concept at the 1993 Tokyo Motor Show. There are 2 types of engine available, differentiated by the injection type, one being electronic. Both are identical in width and height, but the EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) version is shorter by 75mm. They are available in one seater or 2 seater, with automatic and manual transmissions available. The automatic is 2 seats with all manual being 1 seat version. The manual has a choice of 4 or 5 speed gearbox but the 5 speed is far rarer and a premium on price would be expected. The Daihatsu Midget 2 has 3x general models or grades, B, D and R. The B grade is base, the D is the middle grade with the R being the top spec with more chrome and aircon etc. Obviouly expect to pay more for the better grade car. The Midget 2 has become an extremely quirky and collectable fun car and has been recognised as having a tremendous advertising properies. On the Road (OTR) prices start from about £3500 for a nice one, depending on grade and mileage. If your budget is less then we can of course adjust the specification and mileage to suit.
