The Hiace was launched in October 1967 as a line of cab-over-engine passenger cars and commercial-use vehicles that were smaller than the Toyoace. Equipped with a coil spring-based independent front suspension and a monocoque body, the Hiace was initially available in four body types: a delivery van, a wagon, a small commuter bus, and a truck. The truck offered many variations besides the standard version with a cargo bed, including a panel van, a flat-deck truck, a shutter van, an open van, and a double cab truck.
