I'm adding Datsun content to my massive brochure archive and I don't have much accurate paint code information for the 510. Can I get a little help? I'm not even sure that what I do have is actually accurate or not!

918 Mexican Orange is a very common 510 & Z car color, i think 1971-1973.  We have two 510's & two 240Z's in that color!!

 

I also do not see the Cactus Green PAINT CODE in your chart for the 510........another common color!  I wonder if Cactus Green is a nickname for either the #546 Gray Green or the #554 Kasumi Green.....??  Unfortunately our Cactus Green 510 is missing the paint code sticker!

 

Hope that helps a little!

I think I got my information from a Datsun enthusiast who had found an old book showing only 1968 information.

I want to add colors... but only if you're fairly certain that the information is accurate. I think as other 510 owners chime in I can get this filled out!

If you have a US-market 510, can you shout out your year and paint code?

The HUGE problem with the paint code stickers of the 70's Datsun's, is that the actual # printed on the stickers typically fades and cant be read.  I bet 75% of the 25++ 510's that I have had, the # is faded & gone!  I believe that the new car brochures of the 70's had a paint color chart in them, maybe with the code..........??

Check this site for other colors and possible naming as well.

Yeah, I am aware of that site and couple of others, but their historical accuracy is pretty dismal... they pretty much list anything that MIGHT be possible -- whereas I want to try to have accurate year-by-year data for each model.
