Mazda Carol 600 - Vintage Commercial

The millionth Mazda car to be produced was the Carol 600, launched in November 1962. Based on the prototype Mazda 700, the Carol 600, came with a 586 cc all-aluminum water-cooled inline-four cylinder four-stroke engine.
The Carol had enough cabin space to accommodate four adults comfortably, and differed in a variety of other ways from the conventional minicar. Of particular note was the styling of the rear roof; the roofline contained a steep drop-off known as the "cliff cut."
The audio is in Japanese, but the features that made the Carol 360 and Carol 600 successes are apparent.
