Seller Submission: 1983 Datsun 810 Maxima Wagon L28ET Power

The first generation Maxima was badged (for the US market) first as the Datsun 810, later the Datsun Maxima, and finally as the Nissan Maxima.  All we know is that it is a rear drive Japanese classic that deserves your attention.  Find this 1983 Datsun 810 Maxima Wagon here on eBay offered for $7,500 buy-it-now or make-offer located in Cookeville, TN.  Seller submission from Dave.

Today’s Maxima wagon started with a rust free west coast car that was given an inline-6 engine from a 280ZX mated to an automatic transmission.  The combination of clean rust free Japanese wagon and L28ET swap makes it a true double unicorn.

Under the hood is an L28ET inline-6 that is pushing 7 bls of boost through a small turbo to produce 180 horsepower according to the seller.  The installation looks well done and could be mistaken for stock if you don’t know your Nissans Datsuns.

The interior has been given a number of upgrades, including a wood rimmed GT Grant steering wheel, new carpets, new sport-style seats and looks ready for action.
