In April 1965 the Compagno Spider appeared, introducing the larger and more powerful 1000 engine. The engine displacement is kept below 1000cc to price the car in the lowest road tax bracket for Japanese buyers. The Spider received a twin-carb unit producing 65 PS. One month later the larger engine was also installed in the Berlina, and a new four-door model (only with the bigger engine) was added. The four-door model sits on a 60 mm (2.4 in) longer wheelbase. 1000 Berlinas have a single carburettor and produce 65 PS. In October 1965 the F31P Compagno Truck appeared, a small pickup truck capable of loading 500 kg (1,100 lb). The 800 cc engine gradually became installed only in the lesser variants as the 1000 cc segment gained in popularity in Japan. In November the Compagno 1000 GT appeared, a Berlina two-door with the more powerful Spider engine.
