1963 DATSUN BLUEBIRD P312

1963 DATSUN BLUEBIRD P312

  • The specification is reproduced from the example competed at the 1st Japanese GP series
  • Modified to a race car style from a P312 with endearing features
  • The base model is the Full Synchro with a column 4-speed manual transmission.

This is a reproduced example from the one competed in the 1st Japanese GP series at Suzuka Circuit in Mie prefecture in 1963. It was built for the demonstration run event to celebrate Suzuka Circuit’s 50th anniversary. The car numbers and stripes were reproduced based on the original race image, and the yellow bubble driving lights, and the shatterproof tape on the headlight and brake light lenses, making the endearing features of the P312 to a more race car style.
The base model was a “Full Synchro” column 4-speed manual transmission specification with bench seat type which allows one to feel the history of it. The engine displacement is 1189 cc and maximum output is 55 hp at 4800 rpm. Although some parts are aging, overall it is in good condition.
