That's a 1960. At JCCS they had several from the 1950s in including a 1957 Toyota and more than one 1959 Datsun.

Do want! If I didn't have my 1959, I'd be all over it! I have seen a few Toyota Crowns from the era in the states, but barely any of these!

I wonder what reserve price is???

 

i dont think its that high hes a member of jnc, and i dont think hes out to make a fortune.

 

its a shame, i personally think its an ugly car but had he posted it as a datsun/nissan it would have gotten alot more proper attention

I bet we can get that bitch to drift status.

 

Nice little RB20DET on a 5 speed. Could you imagine the lolz to be had at the stop lights? :) Actually, she's pretty heavy looking, so maybe a slightly bigger motor for some lower end torque.

Oh if only it were mine... I'd be tempted to go here with it. (It is a quick photochop on some torq thrusts.)

You would have one of the most rare cars in USA, thatsa for sure. For fans of the early 50s style, it is superb.

The reserve must be pretty high... I put in a generous first bid - way more than i paid for my equally rare Cedric in the same condition , and it didn,t hit the reserve.

Good idea! An LS1 and C5 6-speed would go awesome in this!

Note the 6-lug wheels, just like my '59 datsun sedan. Cool. I bet they are reverse thread lug on one side.

 

I wanted to ratrod my '59, but it was in such solid condition, I can't do it. What I'd want to buy to hotrod is a car missing the original engine, interior,and a bunch or original stuff, just a solid shell with all the trim, then I wouldn't mind rodding it because getting the original parts would be incredibly hard. This car is almost too nice. If I got this in this condition, my goal would be to keep it original.

 

But if it is solid axle in the front and back, removing a couple of leafs from the back (and maybe the front if it is a parallel leaf setup like the `59) or a drop tube axle wouldn't hurt anything!

 

I don't mind a chevy motor in a mass produced z car (though I'd rather go RB or Y44) but a american engine in this car would make me...

This is an awesome find. I remember when this user posted on JNC. I hope this car goes to someone that will restore it properly.

just as some say that toyota was trying to copy the mustang with some of their old celiccas, and i personally think some datsuns look like old mustangs, i can see how datsun got the idea from the old 57 chevy style cars. its actually an ingenious way to introduce a car company into a country, make the car youre trying to sell look exactly like the most popular car here. haha, though i dont much care for old mustangs or chevy's, this car is beautiful.

I'd restore it to new, except I honestly wouldn't keep the stock motor. I'd stick a VK from a Titan in there. It'd look period correct, but it'd go a hell of a lot faster. Not joking. But I also don't have the time to invest in that car. I have plenty to do on the 510.

Ha! I just saw this on Bring a trailer and was going to post it here. Awesome car. I would love it. Definatly would have to agree with the anti ratrod sentiment.
