I like coupes! - Pictures of Bluebird Coupes

Recommended Posts

My old coupe still kicking myself for selling it

 

Don't, at the time it was the only option.

Many more coupes will grace your driveway... :thumbup:

The car on top is a coupe.

The car on bottom is a sedan.

Lets try and keep this as close to the spirit of the original post. Pictures and minimal discussion.

I'm fairly new at these Ratcars, and I know I might get sent to the principals office for asking, but has anyone converted one of these coupes to left-hand-drive??

 

These are beautiful little machines.

 

Just got my 620 Longbed running after a valve job the other day and I'm fairly well bitten by 'Datsun Fever'.

Why would you?  :rofl:

 

 

I know a few fellows who are threatening to do it, but like Carter said I don't think anyone ever has...

Were any converted for driving on Okinawa? I know a lot of Japanese cars became LHD for driving on the base down there...

FWIW, mine was on Okinawa for over two years back in '75-77, so...

Why would you go to all the trouble of painting a car and not color match the core support?

Interesting... maybe it was privately brought over and never converted. Either way, good to know. Did Coupes make it into Europe at all? I know there are LHD Laurels floating around Norway.

As well as plenty of LHD Skylines, but no Coupes. Bluebird Coupes were only officially sold in Japan and South Africa. And the South African cars were assembled down there, not in Japan.
