Datsun 510 for tall owner?

Postby Fairfax203 » Sat Sep 14, 2019 11:28 am

Researching 510 purchase from out of state.
I am 6’5”. Used to own & fit in 240Z, I am sure 510 is a different story. Looking for either testimonial of another tall owner or to locate 510 near Cedar Rapids Iowa to size up room of cockpit. Thanks

I wouldn't sweat it. I'm 6'1" and fit fine, but realistically, it all depends on the seats.

You can install modern seats (Miata, Civic, etc) and that drops the driving position a LOT.
