The listing description describes it as the “Rearest” Datsun in NZ… I think the seller means “rarest”, but point taken – it’s the only KP510 coupe I’m aware of in the country. Michael may be able to shed more light on the subject since he has connections to more local Datsun weirdos than I can even comprehend, lololol.

Those tail lights... drool.

Yours for a cool $22,000 and comes with all the fruit, such as the Watanabe rims, front chin spoiler, sweet L16 engine with twin Mikuni crabs, and aftermarket suspension.

Authentic RS-8s of dish.

One day I shall own a ’70s Datto coupe, but between the Bluebird, Skyline, Laurel and Fairlady there’s so many different ones to choose from.

Not quite a C10, but the '70s Nissan DNA is definitely there.

Now where did I put my secret stash of asian millionaire gambling moneys?

    Nah. Dan has a KP510 and I think there’s another one about in CHCH, then there’s this one that’s recently in the country, in Auckland. Making it at least 3. I could be mistaken on the second one though.

    Groovy. I’m glad you’re here to tell me these things!

    Now if you could do some digging and find out whether I do in fact have the only factory DR30 RS turbo tekamen sedan in the country, that would be chur :D
