This was a local "Southern Highlands" car for a few years.

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
round guage cluster was used on gx b210 and gx pb210, and za kgb210 models

i've only seen the brown "wood" accent on gx models, whereas other specs got silver

so this car was prolly crushed?

I hope this car did not get crushed. That would be capital sin. Even if the owner did not care about it, give it away to a Datsun enthusiast...but to crush it????

Hope not......the owner should get crushed with the car in that case....

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
Yes, this is a true and factory dash for the PB210 with the L16 and L18 motors. I/ve seen it in japanesse catalogs, also in the year car book by the "Italian asociation of automobiles", year 1974.
Round gages are much nicer, I agree, the steering wheel is the same as my factory B210 (76) in US, the only difference is the center cap, which mine has a "D" as opposed to the GX emblem.
I tried to get a dash like that for a while, no need to tell how unsuccessfull I was. Perhaps that car has the 4 round tailight conformation.
Something that struck me when I got my 120Y was the carpet, I thought the previous owner put it in place( it was ugly, like a lumber jacket blanket), but after seing several 120Y/B210's around the globe(internet) I realize the japanesse must have gotten some kind of lumber jacket fetish back in the 70's
late.

If this is the dash for the PB210, then it, & the B210GX share this design. This car is not a PB210

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
Hy Dodgeman, that seems the case, I've noticed that the Japanesse used several differnt combinations when sending their cars around the world. I never thought that the round gauges would come in regular GX's w/no L series motors, but, we just saw another prove that when it comes , at least, to Datsuns, expect the unexpected. So I should asume this 120Y has the regular long low tailights, right?
B210's in US have the license plate in between the tailights, the rest of the world have it under the bumper, but, hey, do not count on that either, 'cause I've seen some Northern European 120Y's, in what look to be a mix between US version(B210, A13 and A14 motors,front grill with round signals within, rear license plate between tailights) and Aussie 120Y(small bumpers, A12 motor, grill w/out signal lights,etc)
Confusing, but interesting, I like it.

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
HY. I just saw those pixes. The rear looks like the japanesse version , a while ago a Japanesse 120Y fan send me a couple pixes(Masayuki), his broder got a red PB210 , w/L engine, Masayuki's was a green A12 or A14 engined Sunny, with that same Sunny badge, and the same rear black panel, not flat, but with those horizontal groves.I think Masayuki said his was a B210 Sunny in Japan, the red one , with round tail lights was the pb210.

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
so's the instrument cluster.the square guages of a 120y coupe are awful.these look very usable.are the 3 guages in the 'radio' position stock,cause they look factory to me.

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
I believe that the 3 instruments are original because the rest of the car was completely unmolested &, if you squint a bit, you can see the radio just below them.

Sorry about the quality of the photo's

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
why didnt the 120y GX come with the 5speed? or is that just a 4speed gear knob?

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
The 120Y DID come with a 5 speed & i have one in my 1000 sedan, but it was an "OPTION". This one didn't have it & i believe that the gear knob is the original.

If i remember rightly, this one was airconditioned & you can just see the controls for it on the left side of the picture, under the dash.

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
This dash looks excellent, makes me want to go get a B210 (I also very much dislike the "square instruments" dash).

And it looks like every option is there: a/c, rear defrost, and who knows what else.

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
The steering wheel is a design departure from the previous two designs, but not, in my view, an improvement.

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
I have seen Z round gauges in the internet...perhaps this can be re created with Z gauges. Since the Z gauges come with the oval case, perhaps it would not be that difficult. Some creativity, yes.It would add a lot to the B210's look. The square gauges are not that in tune with a performance look.
I would favour getting an original round cluster....when I get my next B210 I will get into it.

 Re: 120Y GX Dash
You know what I would measure up if I had acsess to them:
1 x 120y Dash frame (actually I got one of those, Duh! (slaps self in head) )
1 x Z car Dash frame

I have this niggling thought in the back of my mind that they share a simmilar shape and construction there
