There are three grades of van 1400: Super Deluxe is the highest grade, Deluxe is the middle, and the base model. Super Deluxe is equipped with luxury equipment such as wood grain type steering, and the image of a commercial vehicle is not felt at all.
In retrospect, there were a number of models with these van bodies in the sedan in the 1960s and 70s.
The engine and other powertrains are of the same series as the sedan, but the suspension, especially the rear, is usually a rigid axle, even if the sedan is an independent suspension.
The load of up to 500kg is applied, so it can be said that it is robust.
In the case of Violet, the sedan advanced grade is an independent suspension semi-trailing arm that flows the flow of 510 Bluebird, but the van is equipped with a semi-elliptical leaf spring. By the way, the inexpensive sedan grade is also a leaf spring.
