One-Owner Nissan Cherry Van (Datsun 100A) + Classic Nissan Garage Tour

January 20, 2018

Today I visited a classic car garage in Fukuoka called Harfee's. I went there specifically to see this beautifully aged Cherry van (VE10), not only because it's old-school cool, but also because it can be considered a true JDM unicorn.

The E10 Series Cherry was built from 1970 to 1974. This Cherry van was built in 1971. It has a 988cc 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>
