What up y'all? Just wanted to hit you with this classic race car I spotted the other weekend at the Historic Sports Car racing west. I had a chance to speak with the owner Bill Pritchard about his authentic and truly historic race ready Datsun 510. Right from the start I could tell that Mr. Pritchard was an educated and experienced racer. His approach to racing is truly a grass roots style. Without company sponsorship it's hard to travel, maintain, and improve a race car. With the Datsun 510 Bill gets an exciting and fun vehicle to race. Not only is it a joy to drive but the Datsun 510 is a super reliable build. The n/a setup may not be the fastest car on the track but it's most likely the most reliable setup. Racing in general is very expensive and fuel is not getting any cheaper. The four cylinder offers a more affordable option for road coarse racing. The following picture gives a little more insight to the history of Bill Prithchard and his 1970 Datsun 510 b sedan. Enjoy and be sure to subscribe and follow this blog. Thanks and God bless. Have a great week! Phillip...
Bill Prithchard's 1970 Datsun 510 race car. This thing is legit!
Rockin 13's baby!
Love the custom dash. Really clean and to the point. nice!
L-18 1800cc motor built by Machine Tech, Oceanside ca. Twin mikuni 44mm side draft carb setup. This thing is like 12:1 compression or more. Clean engine bay. Looked really nice.
Fuel safe fuel cell. Double fuel pump, single filter. This little datsun sounded great. Purpose built for sure!
