No it’s color is not brown because of the rust on it. Even though it does have some rusty spots, this Laurel is still in a fairly good condition. Only on the left side it does need some attention to its doors.
1984 Brown Nissan Laurel C31
I spotted it around the corner from where I work. Never saw it before at that spot but I did spot the Laurel a few times around town.
This particular Laurel is one of the last C31s sold in the Netherlands (replaced by the C32 in 1984) and it features the trusty 2.4 liter L24 propelling the brown Apollo to amazing speeds with 130ps.
