Thanks to Covid-related home-office and the fact i save an hour of driving from and to my office everyday, it seems like i have too much free time to search for Datsun related stuff… Therefore i’ve collected a lot of cool documents lately.
That “Technical Training” Paper folder contains an empty Sample of a warranty report (from one dealership workshop to the Datsun switzerland headquarter) and a manual how to fill it correctly, as well as a few examples (most probably from a training at the swiss Distribution center):
Also got this Generic 1972 swiss Datsun service & warranty booklet. I really like the style of it. After every service you rip out the page and cross all the jobs done, but on the small leftovers theres a stamp and a signature of the workshop who did it.
One of the big green folders was empty, but three of them consist various technical bulletins for various cars in german / french, issued by Datsun Suisse SA / FMG. Written with a typewriter and nicely duplicated.
The fifth folder is a Warranty Flatrate time folder, which lists various warranty flatrate times and Warranty codes for the different cars and tasks, including the 240Z and C10. It is required to fill the above mentioned warranty report.
And probably the rarest document (also not Z-related): An 1969 Datsun Switzerland press release folder, issued for the Geneva International Motor Show 1969, including price lists, car descriptions and instructions how to get a Press car for testing…
I have a few projects in the pipeline and I’m awaiting results soon, also awaiting a delivery with Parts and more Documents fom Japan, but thanks to Covid, everything is a bit delayed now. Looking forward to big news over the next weeks / months…
