Ex Ambulance Rat-rod: 1973 Nissan Cedric DX Wagon

March 04, 2015

More rust! This classic JDM ex-ambulance W230 Cedric wagon would be one of the rustiest, road-registered cars I've seen. Also, in this video, a big shout-out to the guys at Kōsoku Yūen magazine.

The 230 Series Cedric was built from Feb 1971 to Jun 1975. This Cedric Stationwagon was built in 1973. It has a 1,998cc inline 6 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>
