JDM Treasure! Shark Nose Nissan Bluebird 2000GTX (G610)
August 21, 2021
There were just a couple of generations of 6-cylinder Nissan Bluebirds in the 1970's, those being the 610 (our feature car), and the 810. The earlier "Shark nose" Bluebird is easily regarded as the most stylish of the pair, and is a popular choice for kyusha (old school car) shakatan (lowered car) and zokusha (modified street car) builds.
The 610 Series Bluebird was built from 1971 to 1976. This Bluebird sedan was built in 1973. It has a 1,998cc inline 6 engine.

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>
