Interesting to note that while the 140Y GX came with a twin-carb version(L14T) of the L14 OHC engine used in the standard 140Y,the 160Y GX had to do with the same L16S(single carb) OHC engine as on the standard 160Y,because no twin-carb version of the L16 mill was developed.

Excellent observation Mac!

My bad, the PB210 were Excellent/upscale versions of the B210 Sunny, definitely not next generation! Originally intended for Japan only,but KGB210s(a variant of the PB210) were later produced in South Africa as the 140Z and 160Z.Thanks for pointing it out!

Yes,even in the Malaysian market,the B210 received a face lift in 1978 christened as Excellent,which also had these triple round tail-lamps!

Haha! Same here,same link!

But since the C110 Skyline(the first Skyline to adorn those trademark round lamps) was sold outside Japan badged as Datsuns(160K/240K),could the Skyline's rear lamps be an inspiration for the triple round rear lights of these Datsuns in question?!

Default ID:819; 1967 Hino Contessa

In the interest of enhancing its "bling" factor, the car's suspension has been lowered. It is wearing non-standard deep dish chromed alloys and wide low profile rubber. The bumper overriders have been removed.

ID:819 is a 1967 Hino Contessa.

Please post stock unmodified cars.

It has a 1934 like Ford grille, 36 Ford headlights and the bonnett grille trim does not come on either car. Not to mention the fenders don't look right and if I'm not mistaken it looks like machine guns are coming through, where the bumper brackets should be. I think I'm missing the bigger picture here.

That is the first thing that came to my mind when i saw the picture but if you notice properly the grill is curved in in the car given car and the grill a 1934 ford has that is curved out.

Hello!

I am posting two pictures here

I saw these cars recently on a trip to Bahrain, had only my phone VGA camera hence, the poor picture quality

I would like to know which brand these cars are? The two black Cars

(I have an idea of the brand and not the model)

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Moreover,in the mystery car, the front fenders are joined in a low,clean sweep more akin to mid 30s Studebakers and Nashes and the bonnet side vents are horizontal compared to the vertical ones on the Ford and most similar cars of that era.

SirAlec,

Thanks

I knew it to be Mitsuoka but was not sure of the model. I did some looking around and have identified it as Galue II. On production from 1999 to 2005 ana was based on Nissan Cedric.

Well well now its time to reveal Id:820, 1938 Nissan Model 70 Sedan based on graham Paige designs( as Nissan has acquired those).Starting in 1937, the Nissan 70 model was manufactured and sold. Initially, only sedans were produced, but later a convertible was also manufactured, and a total of about 5,500 units of both types were produced.
BTW absent bumper is because the car pictured above was a bashed up military staff car.
