    Default Anyone remember this vehicle?

    I was in the market for a new car in 1972, but a Z was outside my budget. I purchased a Datsun 1200 coupe. I kept this car for 14 yrs. and sold it; the buyer drove it away. My boss used to call it a 120-Z.

    I had a spare motor when I sold it. The buyer didn't want the engine 'cause he was dropping a rotary in it.

    They were popular in Australia in the early seventies and they used to race them a bit like they did with the Suzuki Swift series.
    Hard to find the coupe these days.

    Here is a link to the Datsun 1200 website. Tech Wiki - Body Styles : Datsun 1200 Club

    There's an unrestored one up the street with side stripes and fender mirrors in my neighborhood. Pretty cool little car!
