    Datsun 1000 (210) 1957-1959

    First picture, 210 "Fuji"

    In order to improve high-speed performance, a newly developed OHV 1,000cc engine was adopted. The designers were thinking of future export potential when they also added such features as curved glass for the windshield. It was launched in November 1957. In August-September of the following year at the Around Australia rally (16,000km in 19 days), it teamed up with another 210 ("Sakura") and came first in Class A (25th overall).

    Second picture, 210 "Sakura"

    Together with the Fuji 210, Sakura entered the 1958 Around Australia rally (official name: Around Australia Mobilgas Trial) and came 4th in Class A (Car No. 14: Minawa/Oya). The newly developed OHV engine (nicknamed the Stone Engine) powering the 210 displayed extraordinary stamina. Both cars completed the harsh course, which virtually circumnavigates the entire continent, an extraordinary feat that will always be remembered.

    The 210, launched in November 57, was exhibited in January of the following year at 1958 Los Angeles Imported Car Show. Later, thanks to coming in first in its class at the Around Australia rally (August-September 1958), it triggered the start of full-scale exports to America. This particular vehicle was presented to Nissan by Hoshino Impul Co., Ltd. (President: K. Hoshino) and is a rare left-hand drive model. The silver paintwork is not original.
