Nissan Model 70 Phaeton
 
Nissan Model 70 Phaeton Under the 1936 Automobile Manufacturing Industry Law, which was designed to protect and nurture the automobile industry, Nissan Motor Company acquired designs for large passenger cars and production facilities from the Graham Paige Corporation of the United States. Starting in 1937, the Nissan 70 model was manufactured and sold. Initially, only sedans were produced, but later a convertible was also manufactured, and a total of about 5,500 units of both types were produced.
Datsun Model 16 Sedan
Today the name Datsun is associated with a Nissan small truck series. Datsun has been a familiar Nissan brand small car for more than 50 years since its creation in 1932. Two years later Datsun became the first automobile in Japan to be mass produced using conveyor belts. In 1932, production was only 150 vehicles, but it peaked in 1937 at more than 8,000 vehicles. Until voluntary restraints were imposed on production, the Datsun series was a best seller with production including trucks exceeding 36,000 vehicles. This Model 16 was launched in 1937. The sales price at the time was ¥2,100. Datsun Model 16 Sedan

It came in three body types-(sedan, hooded wagon, and truck) and about 130 units were manufactured. The car was named after Mt. Tsukuba in the Kanto area.
