The Datsun 510 was from the series of the Nissan Bluebird sold from 1968-1974. It was offered outside the United States as the Datsun 1600. It was often referred to as the "poor man's BMW." It's engineering was inspired by contemporary European sedans, particularly the BMW 1600-2. The 510's European-influenced design was attributed to a young Datsun in-house designer, Teruo Uchino.
