Peter Brock and Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) built and raced the #46 Datsun 510 with John Morton as its driver. The team won the 1971 and 1972 SCCA Trans Am Under 2.5 Liter Championship, with the first considered a major upset. Few race fans thought the little Datsun from Japan could match the pace of the Alfas and BMWs, so its success earned it the reputation as "giant killer" among American racing fans. To this day it remains one of the most recognizable and honored racing cars of all time, and it established Nissan/Datsun as an accomplished performance brand.
This is the actual car driven by Morton to the championship; it remains unaltered and in its original racing livery.
