'Microcars': Tiny, Collectible Marvels of Design

1955 Fuji Cabin

The jelly bean-shaped Fuji Cabin was designed by Ryuichi Tomiya, an earlier chief of body design at Nissan Motors sometimes called "the Leonardo da Vinci of Japan." Debuting at the 1955 Tokyo Motor Show, his Fuji Cabin is a two-seater coupe that sits on three wheels, powered by a Gasuden scooter motor with kick start. To get to the handlebar steering, the driver has to climb over the central tunnel to squeeze into the staggered driver's seat.
