Turtle Monster Face: 1974 Nissan Laurel SGL Sedan

January 25, 2017

Finally a C130 Laurel that isn't a Butaketsu Hardtop Coupe. This one's got 4 doors for more rust! The C130 Laurels and the C110 SKylines did share the same platform but none of the sheet metal or garnishes are interchangeable.

The C130 Series Laurel was built from Apr 1972 to Jan 1977. This Laurel sedan was built in 1974. 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>
