Looks like a Datsun Violet 160J. Euro name for it anyway.
Some were made in Taiwan?
sss had L16+ twin SU carbs and IRS, others leafspring rears.
Loads of rally heritage
Saw a tidy one for sale here about a year ago. Had been imported from sweden
Tojo, I think they were called both Stanza, Violet, Auster and 160J...
I guess if they existed with IRS, then surely the range-topping SSS would have had it.
Do you know how much HP the L16 with twin carbs would have had?
i think we've seen that car before... build thread somewhere on this forum
Garant, the pic of the yellow one is NOT
the car I have the option on. I simply stole that pic off google. I've only seen a fairly poor phone-pic of the actual car, but it's bright orange, lowered and seems to be sitting on Hayashi Streets...
The BMW's I have back home are mostly 02's.
There's a ultra rare 'first-year-of-production' '66 BMW 1600-2. Also a '72 BMW 2002 that's been heavily modified (all period though!) for track and hillclimb. And then there's my uttely original '73 BMW 2002 that I have now owned for 21 years and which was actually the very first car I ever bought.
Needless to say she's very special to me!
Then there's also a rare '65 BMW 1800Ti which needs a very full resto after having spent 38 years stashed in a barn.
And finally there's a big ol' luxurious BMW 3.0S (in the US you guys call them the 'Bavaria') that has been in my family 17 years now.
my old BMW's and miss them to the ompteenth degree now that I live a whooping 5500 miles from them!!
closest I've been to a 610. . .
Well I sure hope the one I might be able to buy from Thailand is slightly better than that one...
