DATSUN BLUEBIRD 160B/180B, TYPE 610
4-door 5-seater saloon/estate, 2-door 5-seater coupé.
Datsun's 'Cortina' model, though with more advanced specification. Visually similar to Violet, but with own monocoque shell and 2ins longer wheelbase, replacing Type 510 models. Still with all-independent suspension, and bigger, more powerful engine choice. SSS coupés had their own vogue in mid-seventies - 100mph top speed with 1.8-litres. 2-litre 'six' version not sold in Britain.
