    Ok guys. I'm looking to purchase a Midget II, but I've been having a very hard time finding out 2 simple questions.

    #1. Did they come in 4wd. Does anyone have any photos? I have a dealer who says he sold a 4wd Midget not to long ago but I've NEVER seen another for sale.

    #2. Did they have EFI or were they carbureted?

    Hope someone can help me figure this out.

    Cool, thanks!

    I've never seen a 4wd midget either. Here is where I get confused...english wikepedia...


    "From 1996 to 2001, Daihatsu manufactured a four wheeled kei Midget with four-wheel drive or air conditioning as options."


    "There are 2 types of engine available, differentiated by the injection type, one being electronic. Both are identical in width and height, but the EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) version is shorter by 75mm."

    How is that for weird. They make it sound like it was available from day one with EFI, just some had it and some did not.

    Why in the heck would the EFI version be 75mm shorter????

    It seems this truck is still a big mystery, and as more and more people import them to North America we will find out more.

    I wonder if there is any JDM Midget forums that some of our Japanese speaking users could post and find out about the 4wd and when they got EFI.

    I agree, but either our wiki article is screwed up...or there is actually a 4wd Midget II out there for sale.

    Would be nice to know for sure.

    If anyone has any info on the first year of EFI and the 4wd option, please post! :pop:
