You are correct. The first FJ's were n/a and fitted to the US110 cars.
As to the year, I know of the 644th US110 and that was made in 1982.
So the year of the "first" may be 1981 or 1982.
On a totally different note, I have the 12th US12 made and that was in 1983.

Okay so do you know the build date of the #644 car? I'm asking because we have a US110 Silvia at our shop and it's #15 which is a very low production number and all the components have a build date of 21 to 27 July 1981. This seems to predate the release of the DR30 Skyline FJ20E cars (october 1981) and i was wondering if the US110 cars with FJ20E had been released earlier. The story on this one is apparently it was a pre-production model and i'm trying to confirm that. If that's the case i guess it's one of the 1st FJ20E cars ever built. It has some strange mix of emblems and interior gauges. Think you can shed any light on this?
thanks

The actual serial number of that car is US110-000644. Unfortunately it has been sold and I don't know who the new owner is. The actual month of production is not on the VIN plate but a good way to find out is to look at the vacuum hoses that go into the brake booster as these often have a date code that contains the month.
Here in NZ if you get in touch with someone understanding, it is possible to get a data sheet from Nissan which contains the month/year of assembly and heaps of other information - trim colour even.
I believe 3609 US110's were produced.
Sorry I can't be of more help...
Hope this doesn't double post.
