1970 Datsun Bluebird 1800 SSS


I’ve been communicating with Chris Houts, the owner of this beauty, for a few month now as the build progressed so was happy to finally see his Bluebird in person at XDC Dallas. As Marketing Manager at Enkei Wheels, I have the gift/curse duty of scanning through sponsorship request and as you can imagine, I’ve seen everything from hideous to unbelievably amazing builds. Chris’ 1970 Datsun Bluebird absolutely falls under one of those amazing builds. It was a pleasure meeting Chris and shooting his Bluebird – hope you enjoy the photos. – ALEX

Chris would like thank and mention his sponsor Wiring Specialties for there amazing Harness that made his swap a million times easier and is responsible for the engine bay being so clean. More photos and spec list after the jump (be ready to fall in love)!

The Hachi Roku has an “underdog” look about it almost no matter the type of car it’s up against. We can relate. Compared to some of these other big budget sites, we are the underdog as well. But somehow, like the Hachi-Roku, we’re still here and competing or even exceeding in many cases! Only a limited run of these so get one while they last! One free #WHATMONSTERSDO Sticker with every order! To save you on shipping, these will be shipped in a Flat Rate envelope. MORE PICS AFTER THE JUMP
