Datsun 12 1932-1934

Datsun’s roots go all the way back to 1914 when the Kwaishinsha Co. manufactured their first car, the DAT (D, A, and T being the initials of the three investors). It was followed by a smaller car that was to be christened DATSON (son of DAT), but because of the inauspicious associations of "son" (sounds like the Japanese word for "loss"), this was changed to DATSUN when the vehicle went on sale in 1932.

Wow, looks very Ford Model T-ish. I wouldn't expect that it was Japanese just by glancing at it.

Shows you how quickly Japan Westernized.

They used it as a base, but didn't build it under license apparently.
