Datsun 1200s were locally assembled in Australia in 1971 by Nissan Motor Co. (Australia) Pty. Ltd. (NMCA). Sedans were locally assembled from "Complete Knock Down" kits (CKD).


Models locally assembled from "Complete Knock Down" (CKD) kits include these 4-door sedans:

  • B110STUL [T=4-speed]
  • B110SAUL [A=automatic]

Model Breakdown:

  • B110 - Datsun 1200
  • S - Standard model
  • T - 4-speed transmission or A - Automatic
  • U - Export
  • L - Locally assembled (?). This is a guess, never having encountered it before

Note that U is used by LHD exports, and by RHD exports.

Nissan Pty. assembled some 120Y sedans from CKD, using some local parts like seats & interiors and brake components. NOTE: all coupes were imports from Japan. Plus a BW68 rear axle which is larger than the BW used with B110.
