This rather popular sedan was sold in Malaysia under Nissan’s former ‘Datsun’ brand name. In the days of the Datsun 120Y and the Datsun SSS, this 160J was basic, rust prone, lightweight with bags of character.


Yes, it had so-so handling and exterior panels that were thin but when it was used in illegal Sunday night racing in Cheras or Kepong, it was cheered from start to finish. Not many surviving today as rust eats away at its floorboard and inner chassis, but you might still find some running reliably in small towns.
