Susita Miniature Car Model Israel Diecast 1/18 Scale Very Unique Model Vintage For Sale

Susita  Miniature Car Model  Israel Diecast 1/18 Scale Very Unique Model Vintage

For the first time in the world, a diecast model of the Susita “Cube” which was manufactured in Israel in the 1960’s, in 1/18 scale.
The Susita “Cube” was the first car manufactured in Israel. The car was made by Yitzhak Shovinsky at the Autocar factory in Tirat Hacarmel, near the port city of Haifa. The car was designed for Shovinsky with the help of the British Reliant company.
The name “Suita” was the outcome of a competition, and it was named after mount Susita on the east coast of the sea of Gallilee. The winner of the naming competition won 500 Israel Lira.
The square desgin resulted in the nickname “Cube” (“Kubia” in Hebrew).The body was made of fibreglass, which has the advantage of light weight, corrosion resistance, and suitability for low volume production, although there initially problems with bonding the metal to fibreglass, Using a wooden frame made the car unstable and even resulted in parts breaking off the vehicle. The Susita was exported to the USA, but after about 600 vehicles were sold, exports stopped because of failures and broken components. It was a brave effort, though. Originally the Susita was fitted with a Reliant 1.2 liter engine of 36HP, later a Ford 1 liter engine was installed, with improved results. The Susita was produced between 1958 and  1966
