Datsun 510



Try finding one of these left that hasn't been modified in some way or other.

Essentially the '68 to '73 Bluebird, it has decent (for the time) technology, and looks vaguely european contemporary.

I think it is very pretty and straightforward, like many of the best little saloons were.

Not in standard form. However, throw in a modern turbo motor, some nice wheels, tweak the ride height slightly and paint it a 70s colour and you're onto a winner.

Looks almost exactly like a Hillman Hunter.

I've voted cool because the first pic looks really purposeful with a great retro ride vibe.

I'm sure it would turn heads for the right reasons.

Looks refreshingly simple! Cool when it's given a good stance.

Cool.

It wasn't then but is now. The retro vibe is perfect for old Jap tin like this.
