Name of Datsun Dealer in California in Early 70s


Recommended Posts

I have been trying to figure out the name of the Datsun dealer where my car was originally purchased. I know it was in California, and I have the attached warranty card that was filled out by the original owner, but the handwriting is not great, and I don't have enough familiarity with the names of the dealers around this time to trigger any thoughts.

Does anyone have a list of the Datsun dealers that were operating in California in the early 1970s? I believe that this car was purchased in either the Bay Area or somewhere in Northern California. It is a late 1971 240z. If you could also help me with the address of the dealer, that would be great too.

Thanks for any help.

Our '77 was purchased from Camino Datsun, Inc. (876 W El Camino Real) Sunnyvale- who later became Sunnyvale Datsun between 4/79 and 7/79 according to my service records. There is thread regarding window stickers and someone posted scans of brochures containing dealer names and locations.

Thanks, Dean. That handwriting does kind of look like Monterey Datsun. I found that scan of the brochure from the prior thread (link below), but I didn't see a Monterey Datsun on there. Was that definitely the name? Is that different from Kendall Motor Co. Inc. of Seaside, 1340 Fremont Blvd., Seaside, Calif.? That was the only Monterey area Datsun dealer I could find on the brochure.

My old 71 (HLS30-11651) was purchased from the same dealer :) Was an lifetime Bay Area car until I sold her to a gentleman in Georgia a few weeks ago.

Manteca isn't very big... It has two hospitals but one was surrounded by corn fields as little as 5 years ago. Two big streets Main and Yosemite. Highway 99 to the East, 5 to the West... Car dealers are on the East side of town...

Manteca does have the Bass Pro Shop :cool:

My first impression was also Manteca when reading the scan
