When you look at the vehicles of today, most of what you see are cars that put style over performance. In its heyday, the 1976 Datsun 710 was the best of its kind. With both a 2-door and 4-door variant, enthusiasts flocked Nissan stores all over the world to purchase the vehicle which could reach speeds of up to 171 kph or 106 mph.
The Datsun 710, also known as Datsun 140J/160J in some countries, faced initial controversy when its pioneering coke-bottle design was criticized by customers. After Nissan made the necessary revisions to its design, the Datsun 710 Wagon was back in Nissan stores worldwide.
When it came to slick design and breathtaking power, the Datsun 710 trumped all others in its prime. Now, the wagon is celebrated as one of Nissan’s best interpretations of modern innovation. Boasting a balance of unmatched performance and unprecedented style, no one could deny that the Datsun 710 was the only car of its kind.
With specs like these, who’d dare challenge you to a race? No one if you’re in your Datsun 710.
