Hardtop is a wartime model of Type 94. The cabine was changed to hardtop in common with Type 97. To save metal, steel platform was changed to wooden one and iron frames over platform were abandonned.

Hardtop was produced from 1939. Production number is not certain. But, probably more than 4,000 pieces. The total production quantity of Type 94 is about 7,300 pieces.
