1971 Datsun 510 BRE #46
Peter Brock and Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) built and raced the #46 Datsun 510 with driver John Morton. The team won the 1971 and 1972 SCCA Trans Am Under 2.5 Liter Championship, beating many established European rivals and cementing the 510 as a car to watch. This is the actual car driven by Morton to the championship, and it remains in its original racing livery.
1961 Datsun Fairlady Sport (SPL213)
This rare Datsun Fairlady Sport was one of 217 built. The SPL213 Fairlady was mechanically based on the Datsun 223 truck.
This memorable model was the first car in the "Fairlady" series. It was named after the Broadway musical "My Fair Lady," which took America by storm in the late 1950s and was beloved by Nissan Motors Chairman Mr. Katsuji Kawamata when he saw the play in 1958.
1969 Datsun Patrol
The answer to the Jeep, the second-generation Datsun Patrol was sold in the U.S. for a short period of time. This generation featured a rugged leaf-spring suspension on a ladder-style frame, with a robust 4x4 system. Overseas, Patrols were used as safari conquerors, along with providing the base vehicle for fire engines, vans and ambulances.
1971 Nissan Skyline "Hakosuka" GT-R (tribute vehicle)
This is a modified version of the legendary "Hakosuka" Skyline ("Boxy Skyline") – a tribute GT-R, privately owned. Introduced in 1969, this generation of GT-R, with its DOHC 24-valve 6-cylinder S20 powerplant, cemented the model as a legend, with 52 race victories in Japanese touring car competition, in the 1960s and 1970s.
2016 Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 race car
Campaigned in the Pirelli World Challenge series and fielded by Always Evolving/AIM Autosport, the GT-R NISMO GT3 continues the GT-R on-track legend.
The team fields two vehicles, the No. 05 Nissan NISMO and No. 33 AER NOW machines. In mid-August, former Nissan GT Academy winner Bryan Heitkotter, in the No. 05 car, won back-to-back races at the Utah Motorsports Campus.
