maybe a 710 2-door :)

 

Looks sort of like this one. A '73 Datsun 610 with missing bumper, but right color though. This is fun.

looks like this should be a regular feature...Jeff take photos of the mystery vehicle that we were working on today and see if anyone can tell what it "used to be".

BB is the Bluebirds list.

that's what people used to do before forums. They would subscribe to an email list.

Yeah its a real pain in the ass, but there are some good people on there so I guess its worth it :P I wish they would upgrade it to a forum, email list are just kind of a pain... maybe it has to do with peoples work computers or something.

was the 610 comparable to the japanese silvias? It looks like some of the shapes they had for early model silvias over there. peace.

I think maybe they were simular (or the same) as the Nissan Laurel. Datsunaholic will know. :)

 

Spam the Bluebirds list with Ratsun.net links. Or maybe I should join and do that so if I get removed from the list its no big deal. muahaha!

610 was a Bluebird. A Laurel was a 6-cyl car (C30, C130, etc chassis). It was a fairly large car- bigger than an 810.

 

Bluebird line was essentially 110 - 210 - 310 - 410 - 411 - 510 - 610 - 810 - 910... they skipped 710. 710 was the beginning of the Violet line (710 - A10) which was replaced by the Stanza (K10) line. This is by Chassis code, of course. Models didn't always follow, especially in the US (510, 610, 710, and 810 along with the B210 did match in the US).
