With big trucks selling well, “Y. Miller Engineers” felt that small, inexpensive and efficient delivery trucks were needed, so they began assembling the “Gogomobil”, a tiny pickup truck that was perfect for distributing oil and other goods. “Y. Miller Engineers” contracted the Israeli “Ha’argaz” company to assemble the driver’s compartment, and imported other components, like the engine, steering and braking systems from abroad. The small truck became extremely popular, eventually exported to Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Africa and the Far East.
In 1952, Amichai Harlap acquired the rights for Colmobil to import “Scania” vehicles from Sweden to Israel. Scania trucks became a huge success, ultimately leading the truck marketplace in Israel.
