Japanese car maker DAT was founded by the team of Den, Aoyama and Takeuchi in 1914. In 1931, one of its smaller cars was christened the Datson; when the Nissan conglomerate took over in 1933, it tweaked the name to Datsun, to honor the sun on the Japanese flag.
Some of its early cars were copies of British Austins – including the Seven – but in the 1950s and ‘60s, it started building its own designs. Much attention was garnered by its sporty Fairlady and 240Z models, and Datsuns came to sell strongly across the world. However, in 1986, the badge was dropped and all the cars became known as Nissans instead.
