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)!
