Datsun B-510


Datsun B-510

Datsun was little aware of the little racer it was producing when it turned out the new B-510 (known as Bluebird outside the USA) in 1967. They equipped the lightweight car well, giving it MacPherson front struts and an independent rear with trailing arms so it could really be thrown into bends with confidence. It came with a 97ci (1.5-liter) single SU-carb engine as standard and made 90bhp (67kW), but it was very useable, with little weight to carry around. This particular 510 has had a six-point cage and strut brace fitted to stiffen the chassis considerably, and the interior has been stripped in favor of aluminium panels and a single bucket seat The engine sports twin Mikuni carbs, flat top pistons for higher compression, a gas-flowed head and high-lift cam. Vented discs, adjustable suspension and wide alloys help complete it as a street and track racer.
