"Catching up with Western industry; the sports saloon masterpiece from Japan in the 1960s."
The 510 Bluebird released in 1967, was a car that originated in Japan in an era where they were trying to catch up and overtake the West.
This car was the third generation Datsun Bluebird, and a conglomeration of cutting edge technology at Nissan. It utilised a full monocoque body with no frame, an OHC engine, 4 wheel independent suspension, and pretty much everything about the car was modern. One must not underestimate the contribution made in these advances by the Prince Motor Company after their merger with Nissan.
The highlight of this car was the suspension. There were no other cars in its day that could turn corners as fast and as easily as this car. The front strut, rear semi-trailing arm suspension would be used in many Nissans long afterwards. Its use of front disc brakes was also advanced for its time.
The engine was the type L SOHC inline 4, available in a 1.3L and 1.6L. What really got the car enthusiasts going, was the 1600SSS. The SSS stood for Super Sports Saloon, and its OHC engine produced 99 BHP with twin SU carburettors, and was combined with a Porsche full-synchro 4-speed manual floor shift gear lever. It was virtually unbeatable on the road, a true super saloon.
After a minor change in 1968, the number of model variations were increased. A luxury Deluxe version was added to the 1600, and a 1.8L model producing 113 BHP was also added.
