The only A/C I have ever seen in a 1200 was  2 & 60......2 windows down, 60 MPH. So, I have never had A/C in any of my 1200's.

 

Do you have a different motor in your 1200?

What does the console have to do with the air conditioner? 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

The first a/c that I ever installed was in a new 1200 back in 1976. It was a frigette unit. At that time all Datsun a/c was aftermarket, not until 1979 did I see a "factory" unit for us to install.

The Sunny Truck from Japan 1985 and newer I believe comes with air conditioning I would imagine that it can swap into a u.s. spec Coupe or sedan

They were aftermarket in the US for 1200s due to the time period. 

 

I know someone who has one NOS still in the box for the dealer install.

 

Thing of beauty and very much not for sale as they are going to install it.

I might still have an account, I have not logged in there in a very very long time. I thought one or more of the mods was a regular here, or at least at one point?

 

Ok, so I tried logging in and I can't and I'm unable to recover the password as it doesn't recognize my email address. hmmm

I don't think that site has mods...  :rofl:

 

I think David Gonzalez probably still has mod powers over there, but he only comes here sporadically...

 

I think he is ddgonzal here? I know he was there...

I think I was maybe the 14th member to sign up? My shop partner Tim was #4, right behind the two guys who started it (the Branco brothers) and a friend of theirs....

Edit: And I recovered my password.
