Hey guys,

 

I've been working on a little project to archive and share every single US-market Datsun brochure ever released.  I have most of them scanned already, but I have a handful that I am still seeking.  I'd love to have 100% of them available.  Do you have any old Datsun brochures that you would be willing to scan? 

 

My master list is located here:

http://importarchive...brochure/datsun

 

If you have a brochure that is needed, or might not even be on the list, then post up and let me know!  I want to make this as complete and accurate as possible.  Thanks guys!

 

Darren

What is the approximate resolution of the scans?


...seems to me we are being held hostage by these candy-ass pussy, limp wrist, hanky twisting, girly-man, cry when Forrest Gump's mom died, crystal gazing, Om chanting, sandal wearing, whiny voiced, oh I broke a nail, fucks.

Oops, apparently I have to follow this topic to get notifications.

 


What is the approximate resolution of the scans?

 

300dpi for 95% of them.

Nice collection. 

 

I looked through but I don't see anything that you need that I think I have unfortunately. 

 

Any chance you have a more sorted list of what you are looking for?

More sorted than by model and year?

There are nineteen brochures on that list that I'm aware exist and need for the archive.

 No I mean like a list of just those 19.

 

I looked at the site and the signal/noise ratio when just looking for just what is needed made it more difficult for me to tell.

I see what you are saying. This is the current list of brochures that I KNOW I am missing... of course, there could be others that I am not aware of.

Thanks 240zness for loaning your 1980 lineup brochure to me. It's now up for everyone to share:

Surprisingly some of the best "new car" ads I ever saw were in Japanese magazines primarily aimed at the female market.  I used a Datsun ad from one of my wife's collection with an ad and write up on the upcoming 510 sedan to get the price I wanted for my Dealer's Demo RL411.  I pointed out that when his customers realized that the upcoming 510 series was like a BMW 1600 with 4 doors and at half price [and left the car that I wanted sit on his lot through a really nasty winter] I got it for my price on March 10  1968.  It's still the best $1700 I ever spent !!!!!!  No,  I don't have those magazines, they passed hand to hand among all the Japanese wives at Malmstrom AFB Montana.

The older brochures show this, too!
