Sedan / Competition
This car was the overall winner (S. Mehta/M. Doughty) of the 27th Safari Rally (1979), the Nissan team's fourth Safari championship victory after a gap of six years. The competition was strong in that year's Safari - with the Mercedes Benz 450SLC, Peugeot 504, and Abarth 131 - but Nissan fought bravely, taking 1st, 5th, 7th and 9th places. The official entry name was "Datsun 160J".
