DATSUN LAUREL 200, TYPE C130

2-door 5-seater coupé/4-door saloon.

Next up the Datsun pecking order, 6.5ins longer wheelbase than Bluebird. Similar body style to early/mid seventies Bluebird, at first with four-cylinder engine only. Big 'six' (like 240Z/260Z unit) from 1974 in Japan, from 1975 in Britain. 1.8-litre engine not available here. A Cortina/Victor competitor in many ways, with power-assisted front discs, beam rear axle, full equipment. 100mph from two-litre 'four'. Four headlamps for recognition.
