Trim

KB10 was available in Deluxe and GL (Grand Luxury グランデ ラクジアリ) Trim levels.

Deluxe

Sunny Coupe: In Japan this was the DeLuxe & was the base model. It had a longer option list only because some of these options were standard equipment in the GL. The accessory list was the same as the GL.

Datsun 1000 Coupe DeLuxe: Offered in Australia only, these were pretty close in spec to the JDM DeLuxe model. Differences include 'some' Datsun badging as the deck lid emblem, & the grille emblem remained with the 'S' symbol from the original Sunny. NSW spec cars seem to have all come with a Tach, radio, two external mirrors, a heater & perhaps some other stuff, all of which were options in the Japan-market DeLuxe model. Other states may have varied the specs a little but the Aussie spec car was better equiped on the showroom floor than the equivalant Japan version. Japan cars had amber front park/blinker lenses while Aussie ones had white lenses. Everything on the brochure option list was available in Australia, including the wood rim steering wheel.
