1971 Datsun 510 B-Sedan Race Car



Fast & competitive, this 510 is in excellent condition, mechanically. The interior has a new seat & belts and everything works as it ought to - gauges, pedals, removable steering wheel. I have only run four vintage race weekends: one in fall 2019 and three in autumn 2020. The almost new motor built by Jeff Winter has about  7 hours on it and pulls smoothly all the way through the power band. Porterfield brake pads give this car very reliable and strong braking. You could easily pick the car up and go racing. Really Race Ready! Shoulder injury forces the sale, or I'd keep it.


ex-SCCA race car, now prepped for vintage racing.
