Datsun’s Bluebird Hatchery

This has to be THE ULTIMATE series of Datsun P510 photographs I have ever seen in my life… Thanks go to Ted Hedman for the photo’s. Enjoy!

Travel back in time to Datsun’s Oppama plant, site of the Bluebird 1600 / 510 assembly line.

Ready for paint!

I feel privileged to be able to bring you this historical insight into the manufacturing process of this brilliant little car. Who knows, maybe one of these P510’s could be your P510? 😉
