by Alan Bent

on Compact Disc to every Nissan, Datsun and Prince car and commercial vehicle
sold in Australia before 1970. The Early Datsun in Australia CD is a must
have item for every Early Datsun owner and admirer. As well as having one
of the most comprehensive model guides for Datsuns of this era that has
ever been written, it also includes over 800 different images, making it
both a visual treat for Datsun enthusiasts and an essential item for automotive
website designers and car club newsletter editors.
Australia received the majority of the
Nissan/Datsun model range during this era, because of this fact the Early
Datsun in Australia CD will also make a valuable resource for Datsun enthusiasts
the world over.
The model guide section of the CD lists over 150
different models, with a photograph of each different model, a brief mechanical
specification for the vehicle and a visual identification guide to help
tell the difference between each individual model. The model guide lists
all sedans, wagons, sports cars, coupes, utilities(pick-ups), vans and
trucks up to 3.5 ton sold in Australia prior to 1970. The model guide also
lists other models that are known to have been privately imported into
