The first Bluebird (Datsun 310) waslaunched in August 1959 with a choice of either a 1,000cc/37.5bhp or a 1,200cc/42.4bhp engine. In October 1960, a slight change led to the 311; the engines were upgraded to 42.4bhp and 54.3bhp respectively. Apropos of not very much, this commemorative car toured the country collecting the autographs of all the prefectural governors of Japan at the time.
