Datsun 210

Together with the Fuji 210, Sakura entered the 1958 Around Australia rally (official name: Around Australia Mobilgas Trial) and came 4th in Class A (Car No. 14: Minawa/Oya). The newly developed OHV engine (nicknamed the Stone Engine) powering the 210 displayed extraordinary stamina. Both cars completed the harsh course, which virtually circumnavigates the entire continent, an extraordinary feat that will always be remembered.
