The Datsun 17

April 18 – Yokohama – If ever proof were needed of Datsun durability, check out this 1938 Datsun 17 cranking into life.

The video, from the NissanNewsroom YouTube channel, shows the rugged and very economical Datsun 17′s 722cc engine starting up some 75 years on.

Although all Datsuns from the 12 in 1933 could be started electrically, hand-cranking was maintained as a backup until the late 1950s.
