1975 Datsun 1200 242-090Q A12 from South Africa
Reliable, quick and economical
Engine overhaul done at 220 000km as it was starting to use oil.
Rebored to 20 thou, so this was the first time the engine had been opened.
The most reliable car that I ever owned, never gave me any trouble and was in daily use.
Very easy to maintain as the engine is very basic and has plenty of space to work around in the engine compartment.
Quite fast for a 1200 as it had twin SU carbs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
