1974 Nissan Cherry F-II 1400 GX.jpg

Nissan Cherry F-II (F10). 1974–8 (prod. n/a). 2- and 4-door sedan, 3-door coupé, 3-door wagon. F/F, 988, 1171, 1397 cm³ (I4 OHV). More substantial Cherry, repeating the earlier model’s formula, but creeping up to Sunny size. Called Datsun F-10 in the US after its development name, and usually Datsun 100A, 120A or 140A in Europe. Cramped, harsh ride, noisy, and odd styling did not help visibility. Interior materials not that good despite Japanese parentage. Fairly agile, thanks to independent suspension (MacPherson struts at front, trailing arms at rear) and excellent fuel economy. Smallest engine deleted for Japanese market, while 1·4 added. Sedans replaced first by Pulsar in May 1978; the remaining coupé was gone by September.
