Classic Motorsports Car Catcher: Peter Brock’s Ultimate Datsun 510

Date Dec 6, 2017

Written by Ed Higginbotham

Maybe you remember this car from the August 2009 cover of Grassroots Motorsports magazine. Peter Brock of BRE created this Datsun 510 two-door—aptly named Datzilla—to rule all others as the ultimate 510. It’s powered by a 350-cubic-inch Chevy V8 making 300 horsepower at the wheels. Of course, this isn’t just a simple engine swap. Virtually every part of this car has been massaged, inside and out.

The Brocks are selling their car now. Asking price: $58,500.
