Datsun Cherry Street by vsdesign69 Datsun Cherry Street by vsdesign69
The Base : Datsun Cherry 120A Coupe (A12)
The project : Street Killer !

Preview sketch :[link]

This time, I 've worked on a poor japanese car of the early 70's : a Datsun Cherry coupe. An I' ve worked hard, to produce a real exotic street machine, in the late 70's/early 80's tradition.

She received in the back a wild chromed V8, with a hard blower, twin carbs and specific scoop...
There is no big change on the bodywork, except fenders ( type Cherry X1R). This californian Cherry is on Tom's Igeta wheels.

To finish, this " bad girl" received a custom body paint, typical of the street machine style ! Enjoy !

Done With Shinan Art Touch Markers

The stripes are bang on for that era, great job! The only thing I might have changed are the wheels, not sure those little four bolt wheels could handle the torque of that V8 or the brakes needed to slow it down.

Thanks a lot man. This street Datsun is in the 70s/80s tradition^^ and for the wheels, I know, ( a bit small^^) but we can imagine that it's just for the show...

that is so badass, the only thing that would make it better would be to do a long snorkel type scoop.

Thanks!and for the scoop, I hesitated to drawing a bigger, but I wanted to keep a good aerodynamic profile^^

well the snorkel would still fit it would just be a lot more rounded.

yea I understand but I wanted drawing a scoop with the " cubic " style of the Datsun. I find that this car hasn't enough curves^^

A Datsun... well, I suppose it's about time someone made one of them relatively appealing.

I would personally say that the engine is too big for it. I wouldn't slap a V8 in the back, but maybe a 2l screamer engine; possibly a Nova Redtop engine.

Yea I know but it's just a madness^^ Just on the paper. And also, the engine looks huge because the Cherry is a tiny car (approximately 3.5 meters)

Madness makes life just that bit more exciting. I must say, it would be extraordinary fun to drive it!

You aren't joking about tiny car...

Stunning color combination and bodykit bro, In Top gear once I have read that, this is one of the ugliest car ever made i Japan, but I don't think so, In my view there is something very specific and attractive on this sweet Japenese nut.
