The website is wrong... The pickup fits, so the Coupe will as well.
In fact I've got one here and I just tried it and it goes on perfectly. Here's a pic.

To get one you'll need to go to one of the Jap shops. rc-champ or R10. Links to those shops are on rc-mini.net

Oops...another body I have to get. I hadn't realized they'd done a coupe body. Here in the 'states the car was sold as the Datsun 1200 rather than Nissan Sunny as in the rest of the world. It was raced very successfully through the '70's and beyond in D-Sedan (several National Championships iir) alongside Abarths, NSU's and the like.

Love's me vintage racecars, gotta have one.

Was called the Datsun 1200 in Aus too..

Although generally referred to as a 'Datto 1200' and we called the 510 the Datsun 1600.

I like how you did the Headlights on the White and orange Swift. Very nice.

I am now a proud owner of a m03 cooper. Looking forward to racing this kooky little thing.

How do you guys measure ride height on your m03? Right now, I have the rear set at 5.5, measured at center of rear edge. The front is a bit tricky as it slopes unpward, and it's set at 3.5-4 at the lowest point of the chassis. Thanks.

That's close enough, don't get caught up in making everything 'perfect' it just doesnt matter in a Mini. Driving the thing counts for a lot more than worrying about the 'set-up'
