There are currently many Datsun 1200s in the United States of America. However, being such a large country -- third largest by area and population -- 1200 owners are relatively few and far between. A total of 133,302 new Datsun 1200s were sold in the USA during the years 1971-1974. Only coupes and sedans were sold in this country.

Hawaii

Vintage cars are rare on the islands probably due to salt air corrosion problems. However, there are these Datsun 1200s in [wikipedia:Hawaii]:

Montana

There are no known Datsun 1200s in Montana at this time.

Washington

Washington State, not to be confused with [wikipedia:Washington_D.C.|Washington D.C.], is on the Pacific ocean north of Oregon and south of Canada. Washington is a hotbed of Datsun 1200 talk. Most of it coming from club member [1]. He is an expert at bench racing Datsun 1200s.

There are at least a half-dozen 1200s in the Seattle metropolitan area, including daily drivers from [2] and [3].

Western Washington, aka "the wet side" (land west of the Cascade mountain range) is close to salt water and prone to rust. Consequently most of the original 1200s have rusted away and have been sent to the crushers.

Eastern Washington, the two-thirds of the state is mostly desert. Some primo rust-free 1200s may be hidden in barns out there somewhere.

The most B110 activity in Washington is centered in the Vancouver USA area, part of the Portland Oregon metropolitan area.

Southwest

The famous "rust free" climate in most parts of the Southwest has helped preserve many vintage automobiles. Likely there are more Datsun 1200s in California than in all other states. It is the most populuous state, also historically the most friendly to import cars, so Datsun 1200s sold well there.

Texas

There are a few guys in Texas who have 1200s, between them at least 10 of them.
