Datsun 12 Phaeton(1933: 12)

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.
