When it comes to auto motive’s we have seen it all ranging from BMWs to Toyotas to Hondas, everything the market has to order. But well, old is gold and the Datsun 610 brand launched in 1973/1974 still remains to be outstanding and a market leader.
The Datsun 610 comes in two forms- a sedan and a wagon. It is characterized by a number of features including;
A 2-door sedan or 5-door wagon body type A A manual 4-speed gear box with a Rear Wheel Drive
A Gasoline (petrol) engine with displacement: 1952 cm3 /119.5 cui, advertised power: 82 kW /110 hp /112 PS ( SAE ), Torque net: 152 Nm /112 Ib-ft

It is common practice for a manufacturer of an automotive to use its design and style for ages for reasons best known to them. Datsun has not been any different and after successfully launching the edgy 510, it paved way for 610 and it was never the same again.
The Datsun 610 has Japanese brains behind its manufacture and has an engine capacity in terms of CC like the 510. The 610 brand had an enlarged platform similar to 510 but was more successful: the L-Series OHC four, and the semi-trailing arm IRS. However, it was larger and heavier vehicle that would not be avoided.
The 610s appearance is quite quirky nut it has got its fans all the same. I personally love the vehicle’s design with a bit of cleaning up, which is quite unique from all other brands of vehicles from other manufacturers. The two door sedan which looks better and quite unique from other vehicles. Quite classy actually!
