The 1971 Datsun 510 will forever be associated with the sporty
heritage that was the underdog that became a giant killer. So it's
great to find one that has the right touch of sporty style and the
nimble driving feeling that's unbeatable.
A red two-door import like this with clean lines is instantly
attractive for a great driver-quality classic. But it means a lot
more when it's on this car. There's a big reason why the 510 has
legendary status in many circles, and Peter Brock is at the center
of it. Brock Racing Enterprises BRE played into the 510's strengths
of the peppy and hardy motor as well as the fully independent
suspension to make them a hit on the Trans Am racing circuit. This
one pays tribute to that history with a touch of the BRE Datsun
Sports livery on the sides. Plus, the double four-spoke wheel,
clean front end, SS badging, sport mirrors, and big/bright exhaust
tip are all part of this sporty style.
The interior is updated with a cool style that celebrates this
sporty heritage. The front seats are high-back buckets with an
armrest center console in-between. We love the red piping and red
perforated inserts that match the exterior. Even the upgraded
sports steering wheel has its grip in red, and there's red
stitching on the shift boot. The overall feeling is exactly what
the 510 is supposed to be: a fun economy car that punches above its
The motor is part of the heart of the 510's legacy. The 1600cc
four-cylinder powerhouse is related to the six-cylinder ones that
helped make the Z-cars iconic. That means both a hardy construction
and a quick-revving attitude. The engine bay's tidy style tells you
it has been given good care, and the way it fires up reaffirms it.
The fully-independent suspension, four-speed stick, and front disc
brakes are all part of this nimble car's package that wants to give
you firm control.
This is an iconic year for 510 racing, and this is the car that
really lets you live that spirit. So you know this is an
irresistible deal. Call today!!!
