The Datsun 510 Wagon has proven to be one of the hottest Hot Wheels of the modern age. Is it the fact that it was a Datsun, a wagon, or designer Jun Imai’s real car? Perhaps all of the above. If this 3D-printed prototype is any indication, Mattel will soon reprise its success with a new casting, the Hakosuka Skyline Wagon.
Though rare compared to its siblings, the Skyline Wagon was a real model sold alongside its two- and four-door counterparts. It was only available with 1.5- and 1.8-liter engines, meaning four-cylinders and thus the shorter nose. However, as the Hot Wheels version proves, that doesn’t make it any less rad, especially when it’s slammed on small 4-spoke wheels. The car is slated to appear in an upcoming premium series.
