Datsun
DATSUN VIOLET 140J/160J, TYPE 710

2-door/4-door 4-seater saloon, 2-door 4-seater coupé.

Third model up the Datsun tree, roughly in Morris Marina size and market. Related to larger Bluebird rather than to smaller Sunny, using same overhead-cam engine family. MacPherson strut front end, but beam axle rear. More than 90mph flat out, but yet another medium sized Datsun devoid of character. It sold well everywhere.
