The second-generation Cherry was known as the F-II in Japan and the “Datsun F10” in North America. It was the first front-wheel drive model from Nissan to be sold in North America. The four-wheel independent suspension continued to be used. Sales of the F-II were generally disappointing,  and the “Cherry” nameplate was retired in Japan after this generation.
The F10 was equipped with three types of inline four-cylinder Nissan A-series OHV engines:
1.0 L (988 cc) A10
1.2 L (1,171 cc) A12
1.4 L (1,397 cc) A14
A two-pedal semi-automatic transmission called the “Sportmatic” was offered, which used a torque converter that avoided the need for a clutch.
In New Zealand, the 100A 4-door sedan (1.0L A10 engine) was assembled from CKD kits as the price leader for the Datsun range; Due to the choice of engine it was the smallest powered car ever assembled in New Zealand, the engine (988cc) being smaller than the Mini’s 998cc unit. Production continued long after the N10 model replaced it overseas, eventually being discontinued in the late 1980s, with the N10 5-door hatchback replacing it in 1981.
In the US, only the coupe and wagon were offered, and only with the 1.4-liter engine. In Canada, the two-door sedan was also available.
It was a strong seller in the UK market, although it wasn’t launched there until 1976, due to the popularity of the original Cherry model there, and it helped the Datsun brand maintain strong sales figures.
In May 1978 Nissan Pulsar (type N10) appeared as a successor to the Cherry, originally only as a four-door. The four-door Cherry F-II was discontinued, and the two-door and coupe followed corresponding additions to the Pulsar range in September 1978. At this time, the Cherry name was discontinued in the domestic Japanese market. It was finally replaced in Europe in March 1979.
added that were mixed with corrugated or accordion-style black rubber extension moldings. Also new for the 1977 model year, the 280Zs no longer received the full-size spare tire and instead had a “space-saving” spare tire and a larger fuel tank. This resulted in a raised rear deck area made of fibreboard, reducing cargo space. In late 1976 and for most 1977–78 models, an optional five-speed manual transmission was available along with the four-speed manual and three-speed automatic options. It featured a “5-speed” emblem on the lower left edge of the rear hatch. For 1977 there was also a charcoal painted hubcap style upgrade (with a chrome Z floating in the amber center emblems) to a hubcap that resembled an alloy wheel, with a center cap with a Chrome Z floating in a black circle.
In 1977 and 1978, respectively, Datsun offered two special edition models. The “Zap” edition was offered in 1977 as a “special decoration package”. The Zap cars had a “sun yellow” paint finish and sported black stripes down the center and sides, with yellow, red, and orange chevrons at the front ends of the stripes. An estimated 1,000 “Zap Z” cars were offered in 1977. The “Zap Z” model was also used as a safety car at the 1977 Long Beach Grand Prix. The Black Pearl Edition (produced in 1978) came with black pearl paint and a “Special Appearance Package” (SAP), which It consisted of dual racing mirrors, rear window grilles, and unique red and silver stripes. It has been estimated that each distributor in the United States was assigned an edition of Black Pearl to sell, although, due to high demand, some distributors were reported to have received an additional allocation. It is estimated that between 750 and 1,500 of these cars were eventually produced, however the exact number is unknown.
