The purpose of racing stripes is to identify the car among many other similar cars during a busy race. You can also make your street car stand out by applying stripes.

The Datsun 510 catalog has the same stripe kit, and the description is worded more accurately.

The "DATSUN" side stripe kit comes ready to apply, and adds sports car flair to your automobile. The "Scotchcal" vinyl retains its luster and is long-lasting. Letters are individually formed allowing the original paint to show through. The side stripe is 71" long. Available in black or white.

The re-creation on this red 1200 doesn't let the car color show through

GX5 Yellow

Factory brochures show what appears to be a Black & Yellow stripe, which is not in the parts catalog:

Perhaps this is just faded photos and it is the usual red stripe.


PB110 Datsun Sunny Excellent 1400 had stripes for both the GX and GL grades.

EGI accent stripe???

Common Pinstripe

  1. Along the Swage Line (Character Line), aka Side Crease
  2. Just below the belt line, accentuating the coke-bottle shap

Character Line Pinstripe

A character line stripe can be painted or implemented with a rubbing strip.

#GX Side Stripe
#GX-5 had one applied
#S1 Stripe
#PB110 used a character line pinstripe

Pinstripe applied to the character line — like a Datsun dealer would apply to a new 1200, as shown in Press Photos
2855.jpgAlbum 2855

Compare to the unpainted character line, which in shadow adds a noticeable line to the side of the car:
13885.jpgAlbum 13885

This "perimeter" stripe variation wraps around the back of the sedan
2326.jpgAlbum 2326 2325.jpgAlbum 2325

Belt Line Pinstripe

Pinstrip just below the car belt line.

Belt-line pinstripe accentuates the slight Coke-bottling styling of the 2-door sedan (pinched-waist beltline)
