EVENTS: 2017 Nissan Jam, Part 02 — Celebrating 50 Years Of The Datsun 510

Japanese Nostalgic Car By:  Ben Hsu This year’s Nissan Jam celebrated the 50th anniversary of a very special model, the Datsun 510. Released in 1967 in Japan and arriving in the US for the 1968 model year, it is the car that did the most to change people’s minds about Japanese cars. It’s hard to believe it’s half a century old. Whether shopping for sportiness, practicality, affordability, fuel-efficiency, or some combination of these traits, the Datsun 510 had you covered. Even its looks have aged gracefully over the decades. For as long as 510s have been sold, people have been customizing them. Warren Jones’ 1968 sedan has was modified in period, with a Weber-fed SSS L18, molded flares, Libres, and an era-appropriate two-tone paint job.
