USA

As usual, USA models used different grilles, partly due to FMVSS safety regulations. Canada models were the same.

  • 5-mph bumper safety changed the front apron, and did not allow use of the standard front combination lights. So the parking and signal lights were moved to the Grille.
  • Nissan Motor Co. in U.S.A. standardized on a single grille for all B210 -- coupes and sedans used the same grille.
NA 1974-1976 Model year (to July 1976) 
NA 1977-1978 Model year (from August 1976)

Early North America

1974-1975 north american sedans and coupes used the worldwide #Early Coupe grille. The fish-gill type #Early Sedan grille was not used.

  • Same as JDM Coupe grille (non-GX)
    62302-H5500 USA GRILLE KIT-radiator Coupe & Sedan
  • #Fog-lamp position was used for amber combination lamp (turn signal + parking lights)
