SHIFT_classic: 1971 Datsun 510 Wagon

Back when Honda and Toyota were trying to figure out what they should offer for the North American market there was a little company called Nissan that was heavy into the SCCA racing scene with their Datsun brand and sold a decent number of sporty coupes, sedans, and wagons.  Find this 1971 Datsun 510 Wagon offered for $6,000 in Bakersfield, CA via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.

The 510 features SR20DET power under the hood -- which is a 2.0 liter DOHC inline4 that was used in the Nissan Silvia, 200SX, and Pulsar GTi.  The turbocharged 4-banger would have made something in the 200-250 horsepower range when new, but this one is boosted with a big turbo and other undisclosed goodies and could be good for a lot more.
