Apparently they have round tailights like an RX3 and have a 140Z badge on the rear RHS under them. I'll post a pic.

I gave a long rectangular 140Y badge to Adrian a few years back They are a pretty rare item.

Now if you pulled out the Z18 and fitted an A14 !!!!

So it's basically a re-badged B210 excellent, right? With different carbies of course. I'm looking at buying a B110 version of this (Sunny Excellent 1400) but have to talk to the wife into first.

Yeah these are Sunny Excellent/PB210's in Japan, the PB210 GX came with twin SU's I believe, but all PB210's had L14's.

There's also the PB110/Sunny Excellent which is a slightly stretched B110/1200 with a slightly different front end. These also all had L14 engines, the GX version had twin SU's.

I have seen only a couple of these for sale in Japan, and usualy in so-so shape. There isn't much info flowing around on these here either, the standard Sunny seemed to be way more popular for some reason. Anyways, cool cars! I DEFINITELY like the PB210/Excellent WAY better than a standard B210!

 Re: 140Z
The 140Y is just an A14 engine model Sunny. The ones with A12s were called 120Y, even in same years apparently (B210 or B310, depending on country).

The 140Z is a Nissan South Africa special with L14. Awesome looks!

L14 engined B210s were not necessarily PB210s, the early ones were, but later L14 B210s weren't PB chassis model. See the article PB210 Excellent Series

You are right.
My sister got married here this past weekend and the whole family was here.
My uncle saw for the first time my restored 1200GX and spoke about the 140Z that he owned back in those days.
He said it performed damn well for a 1400 and could hold up good with some of the 6 cylinder 70's cars.
I think they were maybe also used for rallying here in south africa.
I may be wrong.

 Re: 140Z
So, is it just the bonnet and grille that are different or is it a different RSP as well? Are these panels still available new from Japan?
