Happy B210 Day from JNC

The third-generation Nissan Sunny debuted in Japan in 1973, making this year the 50th anniversary of the B210. Nissan sold nearly 900,000 of these bad boys. A good portion of them were sold in the US, where it was called simply the Datsun B210. It arrived for the 1974 model year, just in time for the sudden concern in fuel economy following the oil crisis and helped firm up Nissan’s footing in the market. Happy B210 Day from JNC!

    Dad taught me how to drive in his blue 1976 B210 coupe. Could cruise forever on 2.00 per night when gas was sixty cents per gallon. Great times ! Dad and the car are both gone, but the memories will be with me for as long as I’m around.

    My neighbors had one, metallic green with tan interior hatchback coupe. They must’ve liked it because when it got to be too much trouble to load a baby in a 2-door they replaced it with a new ’81 210SL wagon, white with blue plaid seats.

    I have to say, back in 1974 when we got our TE27 Corolla SR5, I was a bit jelly of the B210 because it had a hatchback, and Toyota didn’t have anything like it. There wasn’t a Corolla hatchback until the 1979 Corolla Liftback, which was inspired by the Lancia HPE.
