This is by far the nicest Datsun 510 I’ve seen for sale, its been fully restored and is like a JDM equivalent of a “restomod”. This interpretation of a 510 leans more towards a race looking exterior with Carbon Fiber canards and exposed racing radiator but still has a full interior and a crazy stereo installed.
I like the yellow exterior which compliments the age of this car, its hard to believe that this 510 is already 43 years old. I love the set of 15″x8.5″ (-5 offset) Volk TE37v on this stock bodied car, the v editions have an older look to them and are perfect on older JDM cars.
The interior is equally nice with a set of re-upholstered vintage Recaro seats, I like the colorway chosen with a tobacco brown bolsters against a hay colored middle section. The middle interior console was re-purposed from a Mini Cooper and actually matches nicely to this 510.
The engine is a ka24 from a newer 240sx and parts of the valve cover have been painted teal which blends nicely with the purple accents of the Nology wires and oil cap. You can tell a lot of time was taken to decide on not only the parts but which colors would match the theme of the car.
The modification list is extensive with every major JDM brand represented, everything from a ARC intake to a Greddy titanium exhaust. The front hood has a a AeroCatch hood pin that needs a key to open and looks the business on the fornt of this car.
The owner is asking $20k for this 510 which is high when you compare it to other Datsuns, but I’ve never seen one for sale with his caliber of finish work. The whole car looks beautiful and I’m sure it’ll find a happy owner soon.
