HISTORY: Datsun Switzerland Pricelists 1968-1979 (Full Download)

This is the eighth part of a multi-post series about the (hi)story of Datsun, Prince and Nissan in switzerland.  Check out the other parts HERE.

I’ve collected various Datsun Switzerland dealer price lists from 1969 to 1979 over the years. Some of them are very rarely seen, and some or more common.
Since it’s important in some cases (for collector cars insurance, for e.g., ro just because it’s nice to know what a particular car was sold for back then), i decided to scan them and put them here for your useage.
You can use them for your own purpose, but please do not remove the watermarks and please do not publish them elsewere without contacting / asking me first. I put a lot of unpaid time into this, just for the love of the cars.
As you can see the format and style changed a few times over the years. Most of them are both french and german language.

Unfortunately a few years are still missing in my collection (particulary 1967). If you have that one, please let me know!
I will definitely update this post when i find missing ones…
Since this website is about the S30Z chassis cars and the early years of datsun switzerland, i will focus on the years 67 to late 70ies, but if i come along other pricelists, i will add them here for completeness sake.

Update 31.03.2021
Just got in the 1972.8 Pricelist. which seems an important one for Datsun 240Z owners, as it’s probably the year where most Z’s have been sold in switzerland!
