Datsun 1200 Trucks look good with a canopy.

Contents

Overview

A canopy (camper shell, sometimes called truck topper, truck cap, bed cap, box cap, or simply shell) is a small tray/bed housing used as an accessory for a pickup truck or coupe utility. The Datsun 1200 Truck is a coupe utility. This covers the cargo from the weather and in many cases looks stylish. A soft-top version is called a Tarpaulin.

In South Africa, fitting a canopy to the B140 is very popular.

Skytop

Skytop - one of the strongest canopies available!

On 18th July, 2000, at our Edenvale factory, we decided to 'put our canopy where our mouth is' and perform the ultimate strength test on the Skytop. Four canopy shells were randomly selected off the production line, and our Nissan 1400 was lowered by crane directly onto their roofs! Notice that no bending, buckling or distortion occurred when the full weight of the vehicle was brought to bear on the roof of each canopy! After the test these four shells went back onto the assembly line without so much as a hairline crack, or being any worse-off for their punishing ordeal.
