Ok, so a while back in my Maxima wagon build thread I delved into this subject. My local Nissan dealer contact was unable to pull up any information on the number of cars produced. I even emailed Nissan consumer affairs and they came back with the same answer. It's like they just swept all the information in the trash bin and said whatevs!
Consequently, I'm starting this thread to list vin numbers so we can get some sort of an idea of production quantities of first gen Maximas from 1981-1984.
My wagon is presumably one of the last as it's production date is 5/84.
The info plate is a little interesting.
Type is WHD910, however, below that is
Model no. WHLD910AEUCS, but it's not diesel, so perhaps that's left hand drive?
VIN is JN1HU05S5EX050461 So I'm completely assuming that means its the 50,461st wagon made?
Moving on to the sedan autocross Maxima which is a 1/84 production date.
Type is HG910
Model is HLG940FEUC
VIN is JN1HU01S4ET232309 So assuming from the first that's the 232,309th sedan made? Seems like there wouldn't even be that many, or maybe they just got rusted away/crushed already.
So that's the start of it. The rest of you guys, post your information if you would. I have a pretty late production wagon. If we could find some early 81 sedans or wagon to get an idea of the first of these, that would be awesome.
