YAK Car Pic of the Day

It’s not often I’ll throw in the towel trying to find out what something in one of our pics is, but this is one of those times. I took this one in Tonawanda some time ago. It’s a Japanese (I assume) Kei class truck, or micro truck if you will. In other words, it’s r-e-a-l-l-y small! I’ve been able to gather info on a number of nameplates, such as Suzuki, Daihatsu, Mitsubishi… but this one has a King badge on the front, with no other clues as to manufacturer. I did manage to find two others which were for sale, and sold, on purplewave.com (one in Oklahoma and one in Missouri — oddly enough, both were listed with 1,001 miles on their odometers!). So I’m giving up and hoping that someone out there knows what this is. There, now it’s up to youse.
