Land Speed Record..Datsun?

1973 Datsun 1200

..and of all Datsuns, the 1200, so named for the thrifty, not-at-all powerful 1200cc pushrod four cylinder?

Thankfully, the Southern California Timing Association has classes for just about every kind of car, so this tiny Datsun could indeed challenge a displacement-appropriate speed record, and share the salt flats with 500+mph streamliners. It looks well built, if tired.

East Coasters, there are venues for you too, in Ohio and North Carolina…

It’s on eBay in California for $8500 or offer.
