CC Outtake: 1995 Daihatsu Hijet Truck 4WD (S110P) – Well, This Is A First

The final portion of my new commute to CarGurus involves about a ¾ mile walk over Boston’s historic Longfellow Bridge and then along Cambridge Parkway, which runs directly adjacent to the Charles River. A good mix of cars are typically parallel parked along Cambridge Parkway, making for something interesting to glance at if I’m not looking across at the beautiful skyline, but I’ve yet to see one old enough or interesting enough to photograph and share, until now.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Daihatsu in-person before, as they were only sold in the U.S. in small numbers from 1987-1992. This Hijet S110P is clearly a grey market import, and looks comically out of place next to larger American cars, especially the Cadillac DTS behind it. I don’t really have much else to say this Hijet, but it definitely made for an interesting find right outside my office on a beautiful November morning.
