Cosmo Heaven: 1960 Datsun Bluebird P310 1200 Deluxe

April 13, 2016

During my brief visit to Kyoto in March I was lucky enough to see some some amazing cars. Boy, did I see some Mazda Cosmos and BMW 2002's! Besides those, one car that truly stood out was this beautifully restored 310 Bluebird.

The 310/311/312 Series Bluebird was built from Aug 1959 to Aug 1963. This Bluebird sedan was built in 1960. It has a 1,189cc inline 4 engine.
