Subcompact Showcase: Aaron's Datsun 610 ... and it's for sale

Most people are familiar with the iconic Datsun 510. However, most aren't familiar with it's slightly larger sibling, the 610. A good friend of mine has taken a 1974 610 and made it into a killer car.

Little hasn't been customized on this 610. For starters, gone is the stock motor. In its place is a Nissan KA24DE out of a Nissan 240SX. The engine is mostly stock, but is still much more powerful than the car's original engine. There has, however, been a lot of work to get this engine into the car.

On the dyno, the KA24DE-powered 610 made a healthy 151 hp at the rear wheels, enough to make this Datsun a lot of fun to drive.

There has been a lot of suspension work, too, including a lowered stance, full disc brakes, custom strut brace, aftermarket rear sway bar, and more. The car wears Konig Rewinds with a zero offset wrapped in 195/55/16 Toyo Proxies T1-S tires.

1974 Datsun 610The exterior wears two-stage Dupont paint, early bumpers, shaved emblems, BMW E30 headlights with HID bulbs, and more. The interior features Recaro seats, an Alpine CD player, new carpet, a restored dashboard, and a vintage MOMO Racing Line steering wheel.
