1967 Nissan Bluebird

The Nissan / Datsun Bluebird has a history that dates back to the late 1950s and remained in production in its home country until 2001. The namesake continued with the Bluebird Slyphy, which was based around the Pulsar.

The Datsun Bluebird made its debut in August of 1959 and available in Japan. Known as the 310 series, it came equipped with a 1-liter engine sourced from the 210 model. (The 311 was introduced in 1961 and the 312 was produced in 1962 and 1963).

The Bluebird was given new styling by Pininfarina in September of 1963, resulting in the 410 and 411 Series. The 410 was produced in 1964 and 1965 while the 411 was built from 1965 through 1967. The two were similar with unique rear lamp configurations being one of the distinguishable features. Bodystyles initially included a four-door sedan and a five-door station wagon, with a two-door being added in September of 1964. Also in 1964, the Japan market received the Bluebird SS equipped with a tune 1.2-liter engine. Initially offered in four-door configuration, a two-door bodystyle was added to the lineup a year later. Two versions of the SS were built including the DP410-MTK/RTK and the DP411-MTK/RTK. Powering the DP410 was a version of the 1.2-liter Nissan E-1 engine offering just over 70 horsepower. The double-carbureted version of the J13 engine powering the DP411 had nearly 77 horsepower.

In May of 1965, the 1-liter engine was enlarged to a 1.3-liters, already in use in the 411 series SS. The single (twin-barrel) carbureted engine offered 65 horsepower. A twin-carburetor 1.6-liter SSS model was added to the lineup offering nearly 90 horsepower.

The United States market received the four-door sedan and wagon only, and the two-door bodystyle was never available. Power was from the 1.2 and 1.3 liter 410 and 411 series and mated to a manual gearbox. For 1967, the 1.6-liter engine from the SP(L)311 Roadster became available and could be fitted with a manual or automatic transmission. These cars were called Datsun, without any mention of Bluebird.
