810 or 910


Post by glenlloyd » 14 years ago

This has puzzled me for some time. On the FSM it's clearly printed that the model is the 810 / Maxima, but if you look elsewhere it's referred to as the 910. It's also called the 910 in other countries too, so what gives?

the car is a bluebird.that simplify that.
the first style 810 bluebird is 4 cyl.the 6 cyl is a 812 or 820[?] cant remember.
the face lift 810 is a 811 this has a different square light grill.remebering that in japan they are rehashed and styled,also to indicate the new napsZ 4cyls.

but the 1980 facelift can ony be a 910.this was the begining of a big change at nissan.these 910 in 4 cyl short wheel base in australia finished in 1986 and japan in 1991.from the usa vin number,not used in other counties,i cant work out what to call it.
