A short lived oddity in the 1950s Datsun model line.
Three years earlier in 1952 Nissan built their first post-war convertible, the Datsun DC-3. The car was far from a success and only 50 were ever sold. In 1955 the all new Datsun 110 series went on sale which featured a sedan, a wagon and a pickup variant, and interestingly this 2 door convertible version as well. This car too seems to have only been built in tiny numbers.
The car wasn't a full convertible, it's design was similar to that seen on the Fiat 500C Topolino from the early 1950s where the door and side window roof frame from the sedan was retained and the steel roof was replaced with a cloth folding roof section that slid backwards and was stowed under a fabric cover at the rear of the cabin.
There were no variants of the K110.
The K110 was based on the 110 sedan.
