Japan does US Style: A 1972 Datsun Sunny Van (VB110)

October 04, 2014

This second-generation Sunny van (Stationwagon) is an example of Japan doing US-style, old-school Japanese cars. Suffice to say, this type of thing is an unusual sight and stands out like, well.

The B110 Series Sunny was built from Apr 1970 to 1976. This Sunny Stationwagon was built in 1972. It has a 1,171cc inline 4 engine.
