You guys are good. You can proudly call yourselves Datsunologists. And I do intend to convert this auto to a 5 speed.

there are a few other give aways the bccd valve is only on the auto (so instead of coasting you keep accelorating into that truck) I recomend killing the bccd valve they are nothing but trouble. there is a blanking plate visible in extreme right top of the photo

As it's left hand drive (See brake master cyland wiper motor), LHD versions came with a hydraulic clutch..no cylinder visible. Even if was a cable clutch..wheres the cable, but I can tell the difference in the arc of the trans tunnel. I can see no clutch lines, only brake ones.
Interesting to note that you have a split system brake master cylinder. It must be a 71,72,73 model. Based on the Datsun model plate having a lot of black in it. This also indicates a newer model.

What is interesting for me is that some of the loom comes through on the passenger side. This doesn't happen in the RHD models.

 Re: webbs1200 Coupe 1971
only thing i ca think of thats not already said is the number of wires that go into the tunnel, 6 for auto, 2 for manual, you cant really see this from the photo but its just something else that could give you away

 Re: webbs1200 Coupe 1971
i thought (please correct if wrong) the 1200 does not have a clutch master cylinder as ther where all cable clutch,
if i'm wrong could some please take a picture of one with a clutch master cylinder on as i'm working on a 1200 and doing a few interesting performance mods that require a clutch master cylinder

thanks

Ant-dat, left hand drive 1200s had hydraulic clutches while wrong... er, I mean right hand drive cars had cables. I think if you look through the engine bay pictures in the photo section there should be some shots that show our clutch masters.

aside from the dipstick and the missing clutch master cylinder, there's the fan shroud on the radiator (almost no one with a standard trans had a dealer put one on) and the steel vacuum line that comes out of the intake manifold that goes to the vacuum modulator.
so what prize do we all win?

Well the auto's had a larger trans tunnel.
You could look for that.
The will also be slower to get up to speed.
You could look for that.

But probably the easiest way would be to look at the gearstick and if it is long with a knob on the end, then you have manual. If it has a T stock with soem letters like P, R, N, D, 2, 1 then it is most likely and auto...
