This (nowadays) very rare second generation Datsun Violet is not for the faint hearted as its original color has been replaced by bubbly brown patina:
The Datsun Violet 160J SSS A10 was sold in Europe with the twin carbed L16T and was top of the line Violet back then. Given the state of this Violet now I reckon it should be currently at the bottom of the line. 😉
And up front it is even worse:
The whole hood has shrunk a good five centimeters (two inches!) in size! It must be something typical for this era Nissans as this Skyline C211 wagon suffers from the same thing!
Well, maybe you could replace it with this Violet A10 front clip?
So you may wonder what junkyard this Violet is in… Well you are wrong there as this Violet is actually for sale for 1150 euros:
Nissan ORIG: DATSUN VIOLET COUPE SSS @ Mobile.de
So would you pay 1150 euro for a L16T (with 5 speed box!) and a neat interior?
