Classic Marques - Mitsubishi
In 1917, when the Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. introduced the Mitsubishi Model A. An entirely hand-built seven-seater sedan based on the Fiat Tipo 3, it proved expensive compared to its American and European mass-produced rivals, and was discontinued in 1921 after only 22 had been built. In 1934, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding was merged with the Mitsubishi Aircraft Co. The unified company was known as Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and in 1937 developed the PX33.
