Yes, the bed-equipped version of the confusingly named Chevrolet Chevy, based on the mid-90s Opel Corsa B and built in Brazil, can be purchased new for a list price as low as 130,695 pesos (about $10,800). It's about 18" shorter than the smallest pickup Chevrolet sells in the US market, comes with a 107-horse 1.8 liter engine, and looks pretty sharp. It's just the thing for hauling small loads in car-like comfort, and you can't have one.
