1975 Satzumi Senku 20T-III featured in Senku Sahara
Slightly different from my usual creations, but a fun build nonetheless. This is the Satzumi Senku: a small, nippy, and fun little Japanese style off roader, comparable to the Suzuki Jimny and the Ibishu Hopper. This platform was in production from 1968-1983, and over one million were sold, predominantly in the Japanese and South American markets. While the Senku was not exactly a powerhouse (sporting a 2 litre I4 sending just over 100hp through a 3 speed transmission), It was a very capable off roader with a 4X4 transmission, fully locking differentials, beefy off road tires and off road tuned suspension (with progressive springs from 1972 on). Today, it is a bit of a cult car, and many people restore them to their former glory.
