1976 Vintage R&T Review: Datsun F10 – “Overstyled” or Just Ahead of Its Time?

“Overstyled” is a bit of an understatement, but ironically enough, the F-10’s styling was actually just some three or four decades ahead of the curve. High belt line: check. Small windows: check. Sloping rear deck with poor visibility: check. Overwrought bulging head lights: check. FWD: check. Overwrought tail lights: check.


Finding an F-10 coupe in Eugene was one of my early thrills, and I wrote it up here.

There may be others that are even closer, but here’s what comes to mind in terms of it’s stylistic counterpart today.
