Dost, process of elimination is not the way to go in this thread! Exactly how many names would you need to eliminate if you had to get to the answer?

As I recollect the name Datsun was mentioned earlier and the gentleman who posted the picture denied its a Datsun. How so when Datsun and Nissan are the same.

First, because the person in question had called it a Datsun Bluebird coupe, and this is not a Bluebird. Secondly, I'm not aware that this particular model was ever sold under the Datsun badge, same or not same.

See, this is what happens when one follows a process of elimination! One misses out obvious clues

This is a link to a Silvia factfile. Check under "Silvia Body Construction & Mechanical Details " section and you will see it is refered to as an "Early Datsun"

1965 JAPANESE BROCHURE IMAGES
The first NISSAN SILVIA (CSP311) was a hand-built coupe based on the Fairlady 1500 (SP310) chassis, manufactured between 1964 and 1968. Designed by Kazuo Kimura, with later assistance and influence from Albrecht Goertz, the prototypes, including one left hand drive version, featured the Fairlady's 1500 engine. The 1964 Tokyo Motor Show car was badged the Datsun Coupe 1500. The production Silvia however, benefited from the 1595cc unit later used in the Fairlady 1600 (SP311), released in 1965. The Silvia featured bodywork built and assembled by Yamaha, and it was only built in small numbers. A total of just 554 were built, with the majority being sold in Japan, as well as 49 to Australia. She was originally sold in Japan alongside the Fairlady 1600 - see the Japanese full line brochure from 1966.One right hand drive car was shipped from

The official imports to the USA, a "Nissan Silvia" badged version, came a year later, in 1966
