1970 Datsun Bluebird 1800 SSS

1970_Datsun_510_bluebird_engine_advant

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)!

Enkei Wheels continues to support the classic Japanese car movement by re-introducing the Apache 2 wheel. What better way to premier the wheel than to put them on a beautiful 1971 Datsun 510. I spent a lot of time in the Enkei booth and was surprised how many people were stoping buy to not only take a pic of it but to a pic with the 510. A lady looked over to me amazed with a huge smile on her face and said “I had one of these as my first car… cost me $100″. The 510 definitely took the spotlight at the Enkei Wheels booth. Maybe it was the WMD sticker… maybe not. More pics –> [click to continue…]
