Introduced in 1961, the Publica is a small family car that was made by Toyota. It was only available as a two door vehicle. The name "Publica", was chosen by Toyota, referring to the english term, "public car". The car was made to fulfill the national car concept requirements of Japan. The car's target market was the general public. It was also the smallest Toyota car during that period that had a simple and economic design. This is a small car that has some similarities to the East German car, Trabant 601.
Above is the Toyota Publica Toys Club version that was released in February 2005 along with two other cars, the Isuzu Bellett 1600 Sport and the Hino Contessa taxi. The Toys Club version is a racing version of the Toyota Publica.
