DATSUN SKYLINE 240K, TYPE C110

2-door 5-seater coupé/4-door 5-seater saloon/estate.

Descendant of old Prince line, annexed by Nissan/Datsun in 1966, plugged a (small) gap in Datsun Britain's range between Laurel and largest Cedric, though wheelbase and overall length slightly shorter. Only sold with 2.4-litre (240Z-type) cast-iron overhead=cam 'six' of 130bhp (gross) in Britain, with manual or automatic transmission choice. Technically more advanced than Laurel, with MacPherson front, semi-trailing rear, both independent. 100mph cruising speeds no problem. Not sold here after 1975.
