Mint Original: 1981 Nissan Gloria VIP Brougam Jack Nicklaus Edition (430)

March 09, 2019

It's rumoured that there are less that 10 of these Jack Nicklaus special edition Nissan Glorias remaining in Japan. That I've found one of these luxury, 4 door hardtops is a near miracle.

This Gloria hardtop was built in 1981. 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>
