This is a tribute to Bobby Allison's Trans Am winning #85 Datsun 510 BRE.

Duncan Imports & Classics is offering the opportunity to grab one special 1971 Datsun 510 BRE tribute car. Certified by Brock Racing Enterprises to resemble the Trans Am winning car driven by Bobby Allison, this 1971 Datsun 510 is street legal and is adorned in the blue and white BRE livery complete with number 85.

The body of this tribute car is painted in a two-tone white and blue with all correct livery to the original car, and it has been flared and tubbed to fit wide aftermarket 15-inch five-spoke alloy wheels wrapped with 205-series Hankook tires. All of the lights work perfectly, and it features the unrestored original bumpers. 

Under the hood sits a modified 2.5-liter L20B engine mated to a 280Z five-speed manual transmission. The chassis features adjustable coilovers by Techno Toy Tuning with stopping power provided by 280Z front disc brakes. Although a build sheet isn't available, the L20B is believed to have a set of 280Z pistons and a longer-stroke crankshaft is likely. Quenching the thirst for fuel is a set of Weber side-draft carburetors, and gases exit through free-flowing exhaust and a tube header.
