Kyusha Unicorn: 1971 Nissan Laurel Hardtop 2000 (KPC30)

July 07, 2018

It's always fun to adventure into the Japanese countryside on a classic JDM unicorn treasure hunt. In this installment I track down a first generation Laurel 2 door hardtop thanks to Mike Watanabe/RPM of Nagasaki Prefecture.

The C30 Series Laurel was built from Apr 1968 to Apr 1972. This Laurel coupe was built in 1971. It has a 1,990cc inline 4 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
