It's a Van, It's a Datto: 1975 Nissan Bluebird U - Engine Swapped V610

September 06, 2017

I can't say I recall ever seeing a 610 Bluebird U (Datsun 180B) station wagon before. I'm sure if I had seen one and it looked as good as this clinically clean, stanced example, I would remember.

The 610 Series Bluebird was built from 1971 to 1976. This Bluebird stationwagon was built in 1975. It has a 1,998cc 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>
