SR20 Power: 1971 Datsun 1200 B110

The second generation Nissan Sunny was sold in the USA as the Datsun 1200 sometime between 1970 and 1973.  The little rear-drive econobox made a surprisingly good race car due to its low curb weight, but that didn't exactly translate into the soft/comfortable ride expected by American buyers at the time...however, that hasn't stopped the little guy from having a small cult following these days. Find this 1971 Datsun 1200 B110 offered for $10,000 in Lancaster, CA via craigslist.

From the seller:
(71 Datsun b110 1200 SR20 S15 swap. Really fast car that handles like a dream. 510 independent rear suspension swap r200 limited slip rear differential, 4-wheel disc brakes, Wilwood Master cylinders, 6 speed transmission, 16 gallon aluminum fuel cell, full roll cage. approximately 45000 miles on turbocharged motor runs really good.

See a better way to surprise the other guy?


  1. It is a pretty sweet setup. The 'patina" look is sometimes like a thumb to the eye.

    This would be very cool in a period Datsun color.

    The cage would mean I would need to be installed and live out my life once placed.

  2. Wow! This looks like I was ripped from my restomod fantasies. Although I always thought these were fwd.
