Tomica Limited Vintage 5000km to Glory Datsun Bluebird 1600SSS

Tomytec released this special vehicle to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the death of actor Yujiro Ishihara. Ishihara acted in the movie “5000km to Glory” (栄光への5000キロ), which he drove a Datsun Bluebird in the 1969 East African Safari Rally. This model replicates the vehicle seen in the movie.

This car is having the casting from LV-168 Nissan Bluebird 1600SSS (’69), while having number “90” on the top and both sides of the front doors. As the car in the movie was running the rally in the Monte-Carlo race, is it painted with the number 7900 under the official “Rallye Monte-Carlo” logo. Hood is painted in black, while the car is mainly in red. In the movie, Ishihara was representing Japan, so the Japanese flag was on the both sides of the car, along with the word “Japan” on the top.

It’s an interesting car to collect as the paint decorations really put you into the sense of the movie which the car belongs to. The paint decorations are detail enough which you can really read the tiny words on the car.
