Is it from a Civic?


It is not from a Civic.

Also, although the kit is a plastic model, these wheels are metal. The only metal parts in the kit. Wasn't quite sure if it showed in the picture or not.

I was so sure it was the 64, then I actually checked the box and the console is molded to the interior tub - doh!

Here is the next piece:

Yes, this is from a plastic kit.

Creeping up on 24 hours, so I'll try to throw some clues out...
There are three versions of this car - only one has these wheels. It, as guessed earlier, is a Nissan. The car is older than The French Connnection, not as old as The Endless Summer (the model itself is from 1999).

The French Connection is a 1971 movie so is it a Datsun ?
How about a Fujimi Fairlady 2000 ?

Older than the French Connection. So, before 1971. Let's see, I think this car was available as a Datsun in the US but I don't know when the name was invoked - it's labeled a Nissan on the box, but its also made in Japan, so...

Not a 210

It's a rather popular nameplate - this particular model is of a less desireable version. It's US nameplate is "higher" than 210.

It's a Bluebird - and, no, not a Nichimo or Arii kit. Getting close now though.

Nitto? I can only find one BB kit with metal wheels, but the one I saw had BBS style cross lace wheels.
