One thing that can is always very confusing in the Datsun world, is the use of different names for the same model in different countries. For example, what was sold as a Datsun 510 in the United States, is better known as a Bluebird in Japan, or as a Datsun 1600 in Australia as well as here in the UK. To help clarify this confusion I’ve compiled a table to give the comparative names for each model in various countries. It’s not really possible to cover all variants, in all countries, so this only covers the mainstream models in the major markets. The table below is split into sections to group the various models into their ‘families’ as dictated by the Japanese market….
