Track Proven, Experienced 1969 Datsun 510 Race Car – For Sale

Serial Number PL510-066185

In its current life this Datsun 510 has been consistently racing since 1990 in ICSCC Championship racing. It has a reputation of being consistently competitive in any class it runs.

It has achieved 3 championships: 1994 G Production, 2001 Radial Sedan and 2013 F Improved Production Championships. It also holds track records at Portland International Raceway, Pacific Raceways, Spokane County Raceway and Oregon Raceway Park.

The car was purchased in 1989 as a primered tub with roll cage and many boxes of parts. The owner Mike Seymour was going to rebuild it, but he got a job as Dorsey Schrader’s Trans Am Crew chief and had to abandon the project and move to his new job.  His father, Tony sold it to me and the building from scratch began. It has not been tubed. It remains as an original tub car built in the style of the original Trans AM 2.5 types.

Prior to that the car was run as a GT3 car and run in enduros as early as 1981. I have not been able to find out who the previous owner was, but I’m still researching.

The building and continual upgrading of this car has been designed and engineered by Dan Hart of Circle H Enterprises. There are very few people on the planet with Dan’s expertise with Datsun/Nissan products.

Ed Hayes of Hayes Race Cars contributed to the chassis and suspension design and fabrication. Engine machining and cylinder head work by Somers Racing Engines.

This is a great Vintage or Club race car. This car is ready to race…suit up!
