Nissan Gloria C330 #1
The Nissan Gloria C330!!
A truly amazing looking bad car!
This week’s cars are:
Nissan Cedric 330 #1
This Nissan Cedric 330 is one of the baddest Cedrics I’ve ever seen! It has an oil cooler hanging just above that big long lip, the big garuchan like spoiler at the rear on top of another big integrated wing! The thin tail lights swapped for a set of a C10 Skyline and tilted just a tiny bit to make them look angry! Damn, this car is tough!

Toyota Chaser MX41
This Chaser has some integrated wide fenders (looks really bad!), an oil cooler mounted under the front bumper (with hoses sticking out of the grille) and a big big big wing at the back of the car! Judging from the lines in that wing the boot can still open! That is bad!
In the first video travels to the meeting in the bippuzoku Celsior by Daisuke Shouten. After arriving you get an highlight of the cars on the meeting. You can see a lot of the cars featured on this site, like the C330 Nissan Cedric, this MX32 Mark II, a Grachan 180sx and the third exhaust of the week!
More car spotting in the second video:
Daikiro Inada takes a ride in a 6 meter long Gloria C430 and a lowered roof chopped Century. The Toyota Century already looks like a bad zokusha when lowered, but this one with its roof chopped is the baddest of them all!
Thanks guys! This video is one of the best videos I’ve seen so far!by banpei with 1 comment

This week I wanted to highlight the Nissan Gloria / Cedric C330. 🙂
Nissan Gloria C330 Bosozoku style
The mid 70s cokebottle styled Gloria and Cedric and pilarless doors are excellent bodyshapes for a bosozoku styled car! It looks really wild in its shape, it’s got the big bad attitude of the early VIP cars and with the big flared fenders it looks even more wicked!
Nissan Gloria C330 Yanky style
These yanky styled Gloria C330s really looks a bit more like an American hotrod than a Bosozoku styled car. Only the exhaust gives away these cars. 😉
Bosozoku styled Nissan Gloria C330
The differences between the Gloria and Cedric are so minor that with a Bosozoku style makeover you can’t even tell if it is a Gloria or Cedric anymore! But this should be a Gloria
Both Cedric and Gloria were rivals of the Toyota Crown. Apart from the outragous President both vehicles were the flagships of the company.
The Gloria joined the Nissan lineup after Price merged with Nissan. From what I understood the Gloria was the upmarket car and the Cedric more or less the downsized car. In the previous generation of both vehicles this was even more clear: the Cedric featured less chrome and an hood ornament!
Just like its predecessor, the C230, the C330 features pilarless rear door, so there is no B post between the front and rear door. This to mimic late 60s and early 70s American cars even more.

Almost factory stock Nissan Gloria C330
On this picture with almost factory stock Glorias you can clearly see how beautifully styled these C330s actually were! If I were to find one of these beauties in the Netherlands (they were sold here!) I doubt whether I would keep them stock or slam them to the ground Shakotan style!
