Smell the Vinyl: 1977 Datsun B210



I love that they chose to repaint it in the original '77 mustard ochre. Beautiful. Too bad it's an automatic.

I had a Datsun like this one, wished I still did. Among the changes I made:

1. Replaced enginge with a 1985, 210.
2. Changed transmission to 5 speed.
3. Rearend from a SX-200 ?
4. Added one main leaf to each rear.
5. Installed overload shocks.
6. Added the special tach in dash.
7. Added in dash Clarion sterio.
8. Nice set of aluminum wheels with
slightly oversized tires.

This made a nice car that cornered much better and could do over 95 mph, did not try to push it any faster. Before the changes it felt like you needed to shift at about 55 mph and you where alredy in high. Could out do any other B-210 on the road.

One change I would have liked to do was take out the rear seat and carpet from trunk to front seats. Also extend the front seat track for better adjustment and re-do the seats for better confort.

This was a real fun car to drive that Me and my Wife loved to drive.
