1935 Mitsubishi PX33

The Mitsubishi PX33 was a prototype SUV developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in 1935. It was produced for the Imperial Japanese Army and was designed to be used as a reconnaissance vehicle. The PX33 was powered by a 2.7-liter six-cylinder engine that could produce 70 horsepower and had a top speed of 59 miles per hour.

The PX33 had a unique four-wheel-drive system that allowed it to navigate difficult terrain and cross rivers. It also had a distinctive split windshield that could be folded down to improve visibility.

Only two prototypes of the PX33 were ever built, and they were both used by the Japanese military during World War II. After the war, one of the prototypes was destroyed, while the other was discovered abandoned in a warehouse in 1947. Today, the surviving PX33 is considered a rare and valuable collector’s item, with only one known example in existence.
