1974 Datsun B210 Coupe

Found this old Datsun parked on a side street in Glendale.  The temperature was an unpleasant 98 degrees that day and I would not want to drive around in something such as this Datsun which presumably has no A/C!  None-the-less, this Datsun B210 tug at my heartstrings so I had to take some pics of it. Enjoy.

Some info via Wikipedia:

The Datsun B-210 continued to be the fuel-economy leader in North America and it was one of the least expensive cars available. This was in part due to the light metal; small A13 or A14 engine with OHV technology and a very basic vinyl interior used in its construction. Introduced for 1974 with a 1.3-litre four, this was replaced by a larger and more powerful 1.4-litre version for 1975. This engine remained in use, continuing to be installed in the next generation B210. At the time, their body styles were popular with buyers – mainly the hatchback coupé as the sedans were considered by some to be less appealing.
