  • Common FAQs
  • The Datsun 1600 is a classic car from the late 1960s to early 1970s, selling in North American markets as the Datsun 510. There's not many around these days but if you are fortunate enough to find one you can expect to pay up to $4,000.
  • The Datsun 1600 is unsuitable for towing and has an official braked towing capacity of 0 kg. Then again, that's the way it should be - this is a car designed to run unbridled, for absolute driving enjoyment.Â
  • The tough little Datsun 1600 was a loved rally car - just ask Ross Runnells and Geoff Portman who took the 1982 Australian Rally Championship's chequered flag in their beloved "Grunter". Finding one that hasn't been modified or involved in an accident is a challenge. In 1973, Datsun replaced the 1600 with the Datsun 180B.
  • An unmodified Datsun 1600 has 70.5 kW of power, 135 nM of torque and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/hour in 12 seconds.
  • Datsun declared the top speed of the 1600 to be 160 km/hour. Many Datsun 1600s have performed well in the motorsports arena, and some continue to do so today. Famously, nine Datsun 1600s entered the 1968 Bathurst Enduro race and all finished.
