The Dumbest Car Names of All Time
6. Isuzu P’up
The P’up was a second-generation vehicle that fell under Isuzu’s Faster pick-up truck model. The United States initially received the Faster under Chevrolet’s LUV name.
After 1982, GM stopped selling it in America and began selling their own compact S-10 pick-ups. Isuzu slapped the P’up name on their Faster model and sales seemingly picked up. Why P’up? It’s actually short for “pick-up.” Sounds ridiculous, but it does sort of makes sense.
These second-gen vehicles offered up something Isuzu pick-up drivers hadn’t experienced before, the ability to choose between three different cab styles: Space Cab/Sports Cab, double cab, and single cab.
5. Toyota Deliboy
Anyone else craving a corn beef on rye after hearing the name of this car?
Truth is, the Deliboy was produced between 1989 and 1995 and was designed specifically to target delivery service companies. As a pick-up truck, it offered a five-speed manual transmission, and had rear double doors and sliding front ones. The passenger seat offered a foldable option and there was a variant of the model where customers could choose a three-seat bench, along with side windows.
Despite all the handy-dandy options, Deliboy wasn’t quite a success and Toyota ceased production in 1995.
4. Volugrafo Bimbo
The good news is that we currently live in a day and age where it is unacceptable to call anyone a bimbo. The bad? This wasn’t the case in 1945!
This micro car was made by the Italian manufacturer, Volugrafo, and was only produced for about three years. The car was door-less and only had a bench within that seated two people. The vehicle was a mere 2.4 meters long and 90 centimeters high. In fact, the company only developed 60 units of the Bimbo when all was said and done.
