ID:823 is a 1935 Unic U4 B-1 Mwb from France. In terms of obscurity level, it makes the previous entry seem like a piece of cake by comparison.

Absolutely correct! Information about this Traction Avant look-alike is rather sketchy on the web too! In fact,there's none,apart from pictures of this sole red example,I believe!

ID:824 looks like the Japanese Flying Feather introduced by Suminoe Works in 1954 and manufactured throughout 1955.

You are correct sir! You always make me work too hard on this stuff. Why are you not solving the ones on my CCC myspace page?

Why are you not solving the ones I posted in the general threads? Speaking of which, since it looks like things have gotten a little out of hand there recently and both of my supercool entries got ignored (for a good reason, I guess), I'm reposting one of them here (yes, as hard to believe as it may be, what with that extravagant rear design, ID:825 was actually a production model):

Impressive! The related (and slightly cooler, if you ask me) Lutteral Comahue GT (probably an early 70's model - around 350 of those were made between 1968-72) I posted on MS kept you stumped for a few good weeks, yet you cracked this one instantly. Have you had a sudden flash of inspiration, was it the different angle or did you perhaps completely forget about that MS entry?

The rear qtr panel I recognized right away on this. Although I have just solved the other MS you've mentioned, your choice of angle gave me no real clues, but you're always good at slick things like that.

First clue:
This company with it's familiar world wide name, since the early 1900's, changed it completely to something else, several years ago.

That clue was a dead giveaway. The company is obviously D (en) A (Aoyama) T (Takeuchi) SUN , or DAT Motors as in its earlier format.

But the exact model still escapes me. Wasn't even aware that Datsun (or DAT) made any CVs other than pickups.

I invite someone else to pick up the gauntlet and try to guess the model for all of us.

You are correct sir! Actually sold as a Nissan B42 Junior, however you nailed it. Full sized 1 ton trucks in the 50's. What were they waiting for in the U.S.?
