Australia’s Modern Motor magazine got to take an early Datsun 1000 (B10 model) for a spin but, it seems, were not entirely won over by it. When the B10 arrived in 1966, Nissan were clearly still trying to figure out the export markets and in this particular case they didn’t have the recipe quite right. Of course later Datsun 1000’s dispensed with the ‘3 on the tree’ gearbox and went to a regular 4 speed floor shift. They also came with seat belts!
