The RV-2 was a 2-door wagon concept car shown during the October 1972 Tokyo Motor Show. and the April 1973 New York International Auto Show.
THe 2 door 4 passenger concept car had up-to-date Styling with sharply formed edges and large rectangular headlights. The front bumper covered only the corners, allowing the grill to be much more prominent than normal. The roof line terminated behind the large door on each side. Above the rear waistline were a pair of side hinged clam shell doors covering the entire rear section.
An integrated roll bar terminated the body work and also formed a place for the clam shell doors to seal. The clam shell doors met each in the middle of the roof with no centre support. When the doors were raised you could stretch a tent between them.larger 205-70-14 tyres helped spread the load over a wide area.
Two adults could sleep in the tent section and another two adults could sleep on the front seats, which could fold down flat. Finally, the rear section included a full width tail gate with a wind-down window nestled under the rear roll bar.
