Japan's 2nd Sexiest Car: The C130 Nissan Laurel SGX Hardtop (mid-1970's)

December 02, 2012

This must have been the first C130 Nissan Laurel Hardtop that I'd ever seen. It was parked at Classic Garage in Northern Kyushu.

The C130 Series Laurel was built from Apr 1972 to Jan 1977. This Laurel Hardtop was built in 1974. It has a 1,998cc inline 6 engine.
