Nice one
* may not have nostalgia value for USA as it doesn't much look like B210 sedan or coupe
* "NISMO" id plate is custom
* Korean fire extinguisher

1978 Datsun VLB210 Wagon- Nismo vin# - Only one in the US - $12500 (Palm Desert)

If ad is up, Datsun is still for sale**

1978 Datsun VLB210- Imported from central america
condition: excellent
cylinders: 4 cyl. 1.2l
drive: 2wd-RWD
fuel: gas
odometer: 43,296 Kilometers
paint color: safari gold
title status: clean
transmission: 4spd manual
type:2 door wagon

Listed for sale is my 1978 Datsun VLB210 that I personally purchased in Costa Rica, and toured the country with, before importing it to the United States. Car underwent a mild restoration where it received new paint, interior, wheels, tires, re-chromed bumpers, charging system, and more. I have driven this Datsun thousands of kilometers across Costa Rica and California and has never broke down on me. Its also already titled, registered and insured in Arizona.

The car won 1st place for best 60's and 70's Datsun at the Japanese Classic car show, and also received the Neo-Classic Magazine award. Between the unique body style, pop out windows, and color this Datsun turns heads wherever it goes. Be the only one to have one in the United States! Must see in person to appreciate.

Looking for $12,500 obo.

This sold on Bringatrailer. I think it went for around 10K.

This little guy didn't meet reserve on BaT: USD $5,200 (Reserve Not Met) There are many cool things about this unusual never-made-it-to-the-States model, the thin blade bumpers, the lack of any HVAC, (how did one demist the windscreen on a rainy morning?) but the most interesting bit for me is how the Datsun styling staff actually managed to make all of the rear quarter/side glass bits work together. Every other wagon/panel truck Datsun put out based on a passenger car platform had rear quarters that looked a styling mess, as if the department honchos told the styling staff that they 2,500 yen budget for styling and were told to "just make it happen."

The B10 wagon was nicely done, but the B110 was a disaster with it smaller-than-the-other-glass side windows. I wasn't sure how I liked the B210 wagon but thanks to your comment now I see that they kicked up the middle glass to make it flow together

i like how they put a clothesline inside the rear side glass

I've got enough extra parts to make this a really fun to drive but I obviously don't need a 7th car.

not being biased but I see everything datsun A series 2 door wagons except for the 1000 as weird styling

Nothing really blends well like a full panoramic window rather than sep windows that look out of place.

Later datsuns got so square that it would have been easier to balance the rear windows.

Now just waiting for Nissan to get its act into gear and make a van with front and rear sliding doors away from each other like the Chrysler Portal. Oh and electric like the ugly quirky blind spot covered leaf but practical would be great
