Classic Datsun Road Cars: 1938 Datsun 17 Sedan

6 1936 Datsun 17 Sedan

In 1938 Japan was already at war in China. The rugged and very economical Datsun was hugely popular. The exterior was not much different to that of the “16″, but a thick vertical bar in middle of the front grille distinguished it. As cotton and wool were scarce, the cabin interior had a very simple finish. The 722cc engine was a side valve (SV) design.
