boothboy Well if you remember, during the 50's and 60's it was reputed that if you looked on the inside of any Japanese product it said 'Burgie"
I'll say this though, when the Datsun's and Toyota's hit the American shore it was the best thing that ever happened to the American automobile. You didn't need to do a valve job on a Datsun at 85K like you did to a Ford or Chevy!.

Datsun and Austin maintained a relationship with Austin until 1955 (although during the war years production probably slowed a bit). It seems though that Datsun never really built a direct copy of any Austin.

I'll be damn! Interesting stuff there BB. I know that the seventies Toyotas and Datsuns showed a lot of VERY similar designs to American cars. The Toyota inline six in the Land Cruiser looked a LOT like a Chevy 235 from the fifties.



The transmission in the little 510 looked a lot like a C4 and the rear end in another one, I forget looked a LOT like an 8" Ford.

I knew I had seen this as I was looking to identify another car from another post. It took me a while to remember where I seen this and what it is.

I found several pics of it with some small differences between the years and models but, I finally found it again! It's a 1937 Datsun Model 16 Sedan.
The 1936 Model 15 was similar but not it and the 1938 Model 17 looked similar but the grill was slightly different.
I read further and found that 1938 was the last year before Datsun production stopped until 1945. From 1939 to 1944 they concentrated on production for their military needs.
In 1984 The Datsun name badge was dropped for the Nissan (parent company) badging and remained that way until 2013 when they brought it back for some limited exports.

Surprising what we can learn about cars when we start searching for just one bit of info and discover pages and pages of so much more.
