Petersen’s complete book of Datsun: Maintenance and repair, personalized pickups, driving impressions, accessory catalog, new models

Although not tn that initial wave of the small car invasion force that hit America’s shores in the 50s, Datsun has surged from a late start to a position of virtual dominance among today’s imports They have achieved this status through innovative design, careful manufacture, thorough distribution, and reliable parts and service backup All of this did not happen overnight It was a long and perhaps to some, slow climb to their present position Datsun owners are both devoted and legion For most of them the owner’s manual in the glove box is too shallow, but the factory service manual is too deep Petersen’s Complete Book of Datsun is intended to bridge the gap between the owner’s manual and the service manual with solid, basic information in an easy-to-understand manner Hopefully, it will also entice the casual Datsun owner or would-be owner into taking greater interest in the marque.

Perhaps the background of the company, which is more tradition-steeped than many realize, or the driving impressions of the new models, or the up-to-date analysis of the used ones will lure potential buyers into committing Maybe the plethora of easy-to-do maintenance, tune-up and repair features will prompt an owner to pick up a wrench and become more involved with his car Possibly seeing what others have done to personalize their Datsuns may stimulate a greater awareness of the Datsun as more than mere transportation. Whatever turns you—the Datsun owner or would-be owner—on is certain to be found within the pages of this book.
