Datsun Dealers in Upstate New York back in the day

Post by TobyMan »

I am looking for a list of what would have been the Datsun Dealers in the upper New York State area back in the day. Location would be maybe Lockport or Tonawanda at least Buffalo. I remember seeing someone posting a page from some book listing them for some state out west here on forum but have not been able to re-find it now that I am interested in that little tid bit of lore. My car was purchased around here somewhere close. Thanks

Hey Toby,

I did some sleuthing and found this site with scans of old brochures, etc. It also includes dealer lists in the section called "datsunlineup". The 1968 scan seems to conveniently be missing the NY page on the lo-res samples (so who knows if the hi-res exists) but the NY list is on the 1966 scan, which I can tell has quite a few places near us, but the lo-res scan is too poor to get all the info. The site says you can get the hi-res scans for a small donation. I've linked the site and the 1966 list below:

Good luck! I'd be interested to see what you find out!

Totally awesome all of you!!! I'll figure out that search function yet.
Who would have thought that there would NOT be one in Buffalo (population 500,000)? but one in Lockport (population 30,000). :roll:

The Lockport dealer would certainly be closest to you but unfortunately is now a hvac or plumbing company I think. The Amherst dealer called Super Sports is still there though...now Mike Barney Nissan.
