Rediscovering the Rust: KB110 Datsun Sunny 1200 Coupe

February 12, 2017

Was I not saying the other day that there was a severe shortage of good ol' rust in the footage I'd collected in 2016? I think I did. Well, I went through the archives to dig out this 'Sabi spec TS Cup-grade racer from 2013.

The B110 Series Sunny was built from Apr 1970 to 1976. This Sunny coupe was built in 1971. It has a 1,171cc inline 4 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
