According to a picture in a book it is a Mazda from the 1950s. I have no model name so far.

I know only K360, T600 and T1500 as 3 wheeler from Mazda, but they are really different. It looks very Daihatsu midget as suggested Datsun Z

I agree with Daihatsu Midjet (1963-72 [MP5] by the length of cargo box)
About 160,000 was exported to asian countries.

It must be older than the ones you listed, which, as far as I know, are from the 1960s.
I don't think it is a Daihatsu Midget Trimobile, as the shape of the wing towards the front lamp is rather angular.

The image I have, which shows the rear window, matches perfectly. Unless the author of the book is wrong this is a Mazda.

The "lines" on the rear of the cab are not the same (vertical vs horizontal) :think: But I guess that it is one of the differences between MP4 and MP5?

I added [MP5] links (MP4=vertical, MP5=horiozontal)

Obviously! Your links look convincing!

Is 'Midjet' correct, not 'Midget'? And was 'Trimobile' not used in Japan as part of the name?

OUCH!!! misspelled! Sorry, 'Midget' is right.
'Trimobile' wasn't used in Japan.
The name of 'Daihatsu Trimobile' was used for the first time in 1959 (U.S. export model)

Please set year to 1963, as the MP5 model was introduced in late 1962.
