Rest Assured: Kitakyushu Kaido-Racer Nissan Laurel GX - KPC130
June 04, 2016
I often see this Kaido Racer in and around car shows in Northern Kyushu. The car is of course a Butaketsu Laurel Hardtop.
The C130 Series Laurel was built from Apr 1972 to Jan 1977. This Laurel hardtop was built in 1973. It has a 3,000cc inline 6 engine.
