P55B ZM1 Coupe
The ZM1 was a compact budget car created by Zenshi in 1955 and was the company’s very first car model.
Being a budget car, the ZM1 was created for being the most practical car a casual Japanese family can have without spending much of their money. Two variants were available, a 2-door coupe (P55B), and a 4-door sedan (P55A). Both were equipped with a 3-Speed MT and were powered by a small 850cc pushrod inline-4 (I4) engine with power rated at 34 HP and 41 lb-ft of torque.
