Known for their dependability, simplicity, and durability Nissan’s Bluebird series of sedans have become the most internationally recognized Nissan model. In fact the Bluebird nameplate is one of Japan’s longest-running nameplates and inspired various other historic Japanese car models, such as the Nissan President and the Sunny. When entering the American domestic market the moniker of Bluebird and most notably their brand name of Nissan were ditched for a more appealing Datsun Series 410/411. Painted in bright red, this little Datsun is a attention grabber. Overall the paint is in great condition with only very minor imperfections found upon closer inspection. The previous owner stated that a full restoration was completed five years prior; however documentation from the restoration was not included with the purchase of the car. When sitting inside the benefits from the restoration become clear, all of the interior upholstery was redone in a black and red vinyl combination. This Series 411 Datsun is excellent example of early Japanese cars that entered into the untested American market. Interior: Black & red vinyl, in fantastic condition Newer black carpet, in fantastic condition Hurst gear selector Black vinyl headliner Original gauge cluster Exterior: Pininfarina styled body Series 411 specific high mounted rectangular tail lights Red rear direction indicators Newer Hankook tires Original 13” black steel wheels Mechanical: 3L Inline 4 cylinder Two-barrel carburetor 4-speed floor shift manual transmission Front disc brakes & rear drum New Exhaust Wishbone & coil spring front suspension Live rear axle with leaf springs Rare to find in such excellent condition this 1968 Datsun Series 411 “Bluebird” is a fantastic example of early Japanese minimalist design. Realizing that at the same time this Datsun was bought in the United States, American muscle cars like the Challenger and Corvette were being offered; what a stark comparison of two vastly different automotive cultures produced at the same time. It should be noted that the windshield has a small crack in the upper left-hand side out of line-of-sight for the driver. http://www.facebook.com/stlclassiccars http://www.instagram.com/motoexotica http://www.twitter.com/motoexotica636

1968 Datsun Bluebird
This is a collection of brief clips and pictures of my old 1968 Datsun Bluebird (or Datsun 1300 as they were known elsewhere). This is a model 410 Bluebird. 1.3L, 4 speed manual, bench seats front and back. Only had some minor surface rust in a couple of places which I was getting fixed. Sadly I no longer own this car as I didn't have room to store it.
