Datsun 120a F2 Cherry Coupe - Today
**PLEASE TURN YOUR VOLUME TO MAX** A couple of years ago I realised that my
first car, a Datsun 120a F2 Coupe, was the only car that I've ever really
liked or wanted - So after a 20-year gap I've managed to buy and then
restore another, matching many details to try and recreate that original
car. It's been a lot of work but has turned out rather well, with a vehicle
that is a vast improvement on my rusty original. This is a short film
showcasing the car as it is today - one of only a few still left running in
the country (UK).
1978 Datsun 120y (B210) Coupe. MX5 1.8 vvt engine
280ZX front struts converted to coilover and 280Zx vented disc brakes. Axle
is Ford English shortened with plated LSD diff and Quaife shafts converted
to 114.3 Datsun PCD. rear brakes are RS2000 spec 9inch. 250lb front
springs, leaf springs have extra leaf fitted plus axle has tramp bars.
Engine is standard Mazda MX5 apart from modified plenum to increase volume

I sold this car in 2013. i do miss it but i need to finish off my F20c
powered Honda S800. hopefully a video in a few years time. should be fun.
1978 DATSUN B210 INCREDIBLE SURVIVOR
Just to set the record straight, the "It happened in 1978" website was
wrong and I failed to double-check them. Too late to re-script the entire
video. So, once and for all... According to Wikipedia and several
additional sources it was actually 1976 when the album Hotel
California was released NOT 1978
See a FULL SCREEN PHOTO image at this link:
Our 1978 Datsun B210 with 19,600 actual miles. (31,500km) It has been
garaged it's entire life. It has never been winter driven, and has seldom
seen rain... No smoking ever. This car is not restored, it has never had
any paint work of any kind. The body and interior are almost perfect. The
engine compartment has not been detailed. The car is kept in climate
control and only driven a few times each year to car shows. It has an
EPA-mpg rating of 28 city and 41 highway! It is powered by a 1.4 liter
4-cylinder engine with a 4-speed manual transmission.

The Defect III (Datsun 120Y) lives!
July 1974 Datsun 120Y 4 door Sedan, which is known in some markets as a
B-210 or Honeybee - it started life as a A12/3 speed Auto/H145 diff car -
it's now is a B310 (Sunny) A12/ smoothcase four speed and BW68 diff in it
as well as late model Australian 120Y sedan front suspension as well
the original A12 engine was seized... so I updated as much of it as I could
to Aussie late model 120Y Sedan mechanicals

This 1979 Datsun Sunny looks to be in retirement after a life of hard
driving. It doesn't look too far gone. The patina is perhaps just about
