Datsun 1200 came in two wagon forms: the 2-dr wagon and the 4-dr wagon. In some literature these were called 3-dr and 5-dr. In Japan both 2-dr and 4-dr wagons are called バン (van), hence the V- prefix in VB110.

'Van' is used in Japan, while US and Australia commonly say wagon. UK says Estate. Danish say Stationcar. Whatever you call it, it's the most versatile of the Datsun 1200 range.

Reportedly there was also a Datsun 1200 utility van (a wagon with no rear side windows aka "Sedan delivery", "delivery van" or "panel van"), but pictures of such have never appeared. There was however a B210 panel van:
More utilitarian two-door wagons were known as "sedan delivery" cars, often with solid panels where the rear side windows would be.

wikipedia:Sedan delivery

Commercial bodies seem to suffer from being knocked around more than passenger models, so finding a very good condition wagon is a bit more challenging than for a coupe or sedan.

2-door Wagon

aka 3-door wagon. These seem to have been sold mostly in Japan and New Zealand. The Japan-market version is a 2-place (2 passenger) vehicle -- it has no rear seat -- and has a higher load rating than the 4-place van. It's not shown in the 1971 JDM parts catalog (it is in the 1972 catalog).

The 1200 wagon has an ungainly sweep up on the rear side window. What would it look like without this?
