<-- Back to Grille

Datsun 1200 Sedans were originally fitted with a stainless metal grille. Early 1200 Pickups (1971-1977) use this too. The 1972 JDM facelift introduced a new grille, but it too was different from the plastic Coupe grille.

1970-1971 Sedan Grille. Early 1200 truck used this through March 1978. Export 1200s used this into 1978.
