The Datsun 510 from the late 60s, early 70s was a very competent and well equipped car.   Eligor made a four door sedan version in green and recently Greenlight has done a rallye/race version of the two door sedan.  I acquired a few of these bargains and did some conversion work.  One into a stock two door sedan and one into a station wagon. 

Custom wheel covers had to be made to replace the four spoke mag style wheels and the wheel well flairs had to be ground off among other minor  changes to the interior.

Nicely done John. I remember the Datsun 510 fondly. Your modifications look great.

I also remember the car, saw them on some of the car rallyes I participated. Nice work on the models and thanks for sharing photos.
