    My Dad's 1974 Datsun 180B (610) SSS 2-door Coupe

    Been meaning to throw up some pics of Dad's car for some time, but recently (last week) we fitted up some new shoes which really made it worthy even more. Thanks to some inspiration (guinea pigging) by SIX-TEN, we've purchased and fitted up some Silver XXR/Sportmax 513 model in 15x8+0 offset. Tyres are same size as SIX-TEN's too, fitting some Kuhmo Ecsta KU31's in 195/50R15 for that perfect amount of JDM stretch.

    Some shots of the exterior with the new rims fitted:



















    And some of the engine and interior:













    I also made a couple of blog posts about it on my SILLBEER blog:

    Next is to get the suspension sorted.

    Cheers

    Very clean D for sure! The wheels really accent the car nicely.

    That's sexy! Not so sure on that huge truck-style bumper though!

    Thanks guys. Dad bought the car from a country owner, thus the bull bar. Rocker cover was chromed, not polished. And that's my Sigma. It's actually a Galant Turbo. See address sig.

    Not any more. It used to have a baby blue vinl roof at one time (and boot/trunk). But when Dad had it resprayed there was a bit of rust starting to happen under it and it looked a lot better without it.
