    Datsun 15 1936-1937

    First picture, Phaeton

    The "15", which appeared in May 1936, uses the same 722cc (Type 7) engine as the "14", but the compression ratio was raised from 5.2 to 5.4 to turn it into a 16ps engine. The square badge on the upper left of the radiator grille is a feature of the "15", which also had horizontal louvers on the side of the hood of a more elaborate design than the simple vertical ones on the "14".

    Second picture, Roadster

    This roadster had the same 722cc engine as the "14", but by increasing the compression ratio from 5.2 to 5.4, maximum horsepower was increased by 1ps to 16. As with the phaeton, it was distinguished by the square badge on the radiator grille and louvers on the side of the hood that look as if they open and close. Due to changes in the law, from the "15" onwards, the spare tire could be mounted on the outside of the trunk.
