If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Redline Restorations is pleased to offer this stunning 1973 Datsun 510 resto-mod finished in gloss black with graphite accents. All chrome and trim pieces have been refinished in dark charcoal. This example remained with a single owner from 1974 until 2017. Originally a red car, it was painted black in 1974 and again in 2017. The interior features black 240Z vinyl seats, clean black carpeting, and a dashboard free of any cracks!
Still retaining the factory 4-speed transmission, the previous owner installed a Bluebird 1800 SSS motor, electronic ignition, a BRE 510 Spook front air dam, custom metal fender flares, and a custom exhaust with Monza dual tips. The car is fitted with 15” Konig Rewind wheels and wears Mastercraft 195/55R15 tires on all 4 corners. Stopping power is attributed to Akebono front discs, stainless braided lines, and rear drums.
The ventilated moonroof was also added by the previous owner however, the car still retains its A/C, and rare defroster equipped rear glass! The audio system has been upgraded to include an Alpine headunit with bluetooth connectivity, MB Quart speakers, and a Rockford Fosgate subwoofer. Additional features include shaved door handles operated via remote, interior switches fitted into a Datsun 620 center console, or a hidden drivers door switch under the rear bumper.
