The 1971 DATSUN 510 or otherwise known as the Datsun 1600, designed by Terri Uchino, was a model of the ‘Bluebird’ sold from 1968 to 1973. These cars were inspired by the 1966 BMW 1600 on a technology level and were eventually famous for their rallying success outside of Japan. In the US the car had 96 hp (72 kW), and a claimed top speed of 100mph, front disk brakes, independent suspension, and a solid live axle with leaf springs in the back. Two-door, four-door, and station wagon options were available. Best known in the US for winning the Trans Am Series under 2500cc class in ’71 &’72 with John Morton at the wheel, this car remains one of the most popular production cars in numerous classes of amateur racing.
