Just look at all those goodies! Datsun South Africa knew how to treat their customers!
I think this more or less translates as ‘You can trust in the ’78 Datsun’. This Mexican ad most likely pictures one of the locally built Datsun 160J, which came with the older OHV J-series engines.
The image used in this ad is a heavily cropped version of a photo which Nissan used in other ads and brochures at the time. The original image shows the whole car, a 710 SSS which is sat low on some polished mags. If anyone has a copy of that pic please message me as I can’t find it anywhere!
This is a bit of an odd one as it’s from South Africa where the A10 model was sold as a 1600J or 1800J rather than the Violet, Stanza, Auster as in Japan or Oz, or even the 140J or 160J as in Europe. Presumably these came with an L-series engine rather than the old OHV J-series as some South American markets seem to have had…
