This 1972 Datsun 521 – a pickup from Nissan’s Heritage Hall affectionately known as ‘Sweet Pea’ – was honored as a Class Winner in the Truck Category at the recent Concours d’Elegance of Texas – or COT as it is known.
The Concours featured a truck class, which is not common in classic car shows!
Nissan was a premier sponsor for this 6th annual COT, which was held at the Richard Greene Linear Park in Arlington, Texas. This year’s event featured 125 of the finest motorcars in America, many seldom seen publicly. It was a great opportunity to see mechanical sophistication, elegance & the best in automotive style – all traits embodied to some extent by this pristine green Datsun that comes from an era when small pickups were just that … small!
