1970 Datsun 510


1970 Datsun 510 I’m just a Old School Trans-Am Wantabe! I have owned this car since 1974. Datsun L-20B (2 liter, 4 cylinder) bored .040” over with flat top 280Z pistons, 10.5:1 compression ratio. 44mm Mukuni side draft carbs, Racer Brown Slalom cam, 280Z intake and exhaust valves. Datsun competition Header exiting thru a custom built 2.5” exhaust system. Accusump, 280ZX 5 speed, 4.38 LSD, Datsun competition springs and shocks, 280ZX front brakes and struts. 15x8, 0 offset, XXR 002 wheels. 205/50-15” Falken ZE-912 tires. Box fenders, Louvered hood, 16 gallon fuel cell, Autopower Roll bar…….I could go on and on. I have put around 30,000 miles since the car was completely restored in 1983. I love taking it to car shows and sitting back and listening to people’s comments. It’s rare to see another 510 in the Ohio rustbelt!
