My Datsun 510 is a work in progress. I was into Datsun's the day after I was born and this was the car literally rode in. So my interest in cars recently came about when I saw our family's old 510 rusting in a field for the past 25 years, until 2009 when I decided to take it on as my restoration project. Thought I'd start this blog about just different stuff that interests me (not just cars but hobbies too). This car is not for sale nor will it ever be for sale. *If your car is featured here against your wishes or you see incorrect information, please contact me at classicdatsuns@gmail.com , and I will make any necessary changes. Have fun viewing. I am not affiliated with any sponsors, company, or body shop. I'm just a dude that likes Datsuns.

1937 Datsun in Japan

I'm not quite sure what they are saying but the video displays a rare 1937 Datsun Type 16 Sedan or Datsun 16.  Everything in the car looks original and complete but super rusty and really old.  These cars had a top speed of 80 kmph.

Fun Fact:  July 1911 the first DAT is the name given for 2 person transportation vehicles and the first vehicle produced is the DAT Type 1.  After a series of mergers and name changes, 1931 saw the first "DAT Son" (Son of DAT) unveiled as the Type 10 around the same time, it was taken over by Nissan and the first car to wear the "Datsun" badge was the 1932 Datsun Type 11.

Can I get a reader to possibly translate or tell me more about it??!!!
