Badboys drive bad cars. Troughout history there have always been certain cars of which the most famous owners were dictators or other high-ranked criminals like for example the Mercedes-Benz 600 LWB's. The underground scene of Japan ofcourse could choose from a scala of European cars but there also were a handfull of homebrew cars who would do the job just fine. The Century for example, but also lets not forget this beauty right here. The H150 Nissan President. You could call it a huge Yakuza-cruiser if you want. The H150 was launched in the end of '65 as the follow-up model of the '63 H31-based Cedric Special which looked allot like the Crowns of those days. The engine-choise at that moment was limited to two versions. The well-known and trusted H30 3.0l L6 engine or the big American-like 4.0L V8 Y40 engine that produced almost 200HP. The model shown below is the facelift version that was introduced in '71. Nothing mayor changed but there is one fun fact about it though. The facelift H150 was the first Japanese car that was equiped with electronic ABS which Nissan's called an "Electro Anti-Lock System" also known as EAS back than. The model shown below as said is a facelifted H150 from '72 so it was one of the very last models sold. In '71 the H250 was already for sale back in the days. This model is equiped with the H30 engine and has a all luxury on board like a airconditioner, powersteering and hydraulic suspension. Not bad in these days! So you want to feel a bit like a Yakuza cruising down in this H150 thats possible. For only €14.000 is can be yours which, to me, sounds a bargain if you'd have the money!
