Nissan calls their Extended-cab pickups "King Cab". Unfortunately they never made a "King Cab" version of the Datsun 1200 pickup. However, that hasn't stopped 1200 fans from making their own.



The Bakkie has an extended roof (more headroom), and some models were long-wheelbase but this article is about a longer cab (aka extra-cab). In Datsun chassis code, this is the K truck (Custom or King Cab) thus KB120, which was never a factory offering, unlike the Datsun KG620 Custom Truck.

Custom Truck

The vehicle we know as the King Cab was called the "Datsun Custom Truck" (KG620) in the Japan domestic market. Unfortunately Nissan never made a KGB120, but enterprising fans have.
