The¬†Italian Datsun market remains something of an enigma to me. There seems to have been remarkable few sales in Italy back in the 70s and 80s and indeed, the ill fated collaboration between Nissan and Alfa Romeo in the 1980s although primarily intended to save Alfa Romeo, was surely also a way for Nissan to circumvent any import restrictions on Japanese cars. There certainly must have been Datsuns on the Italian market in the 1970s as ¬†illustrated by the three Datsun 1200 (B110) adverts below. I’d be very interested to see more Italian market literature if anyone has any.
