    Datsun Deluxe Sedan (DB) 1948-1954

    The first postwar passenger car was the Datsun Standard Sedan (DA), which in March 1948 was followed by the Deluxe Sedan (DB), distinguished by its American-style streamlined body. The chassis was the same as the DA and at first it had the same 722cc engine. DB-2 (September 1950) had a 860cc, 20ps engine, and with DB-5 (February 1953) output was increased to 24ps.

    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    This design is strongly reminiscent of a Crosley, though at 1,950lb with a measly horse-or-so more than the CoBra engine, this thing must have been a real dog. I think Crosleys usually tipped the scales south of 1,200lb (540 communist).

    That could all be fixed with the simple addition of RB26DETT.

    "No. My Finnish is fine; I am from Finland. Do you have any water?"

    But then you'd probably have to drive from the back seat.
