The Datsun Laurel was a midsize car built by Nissan, between the years of 1969 and 2002. The First generation (C30) cars, built from 1968–1972, and the Second generation (C130) cars, made from 1972–1977 are the ones most sought after by classic car collectors and auto enthusiasts.
These first generation, C30 Laurel cars were built between 1968 and 1972. They were offered in the body styles of a 2-door hardtop coupé and a 4-door sedan. Its layout was front engine with rear drive. Its design was related to the Nissan Skyline, but it had a smaller engine. The powertrain choice was either a 1.8 L G-18 I4 or the larger 2.0 L G-20 I4 engine. Transmission choices of either a 4-speed manual or a 3-speed automatic were available.
Generation 2 of the Laurel, known as the L200 or C130-series, belongs to mid-size luxury or executive car class, called the “E (executive cars)” market segment. The car was offered in configurations with 4-door sedan and hardtop coupe body shapes between the years 1972 and 1977.
