Curbside Classic described the 610 as "the first Infiniti". It is somewhat easy to think of this as a 1970s Infiniti G35 coupe, or the first 'G20' as it were. Buying a 610 got you such small-car luxury items as tinted glass, a clock, faux wood dash trim, reclining bucket seats upholstered in "glove-like vinyl" and full carpeting, things that "bring to mind the era of mahogany and red velvet". Yes, that's actual language from the brochure. And air conditioning was still an option, not standard.
I will say that the interior of this car is in fantastic condition from what I can see, though I don't think those seats are original. The style looks different from stock unless I'm mistaken. Datsun was very sneaky in giving the car a brown plastic steering wheel to evoke the woodgrain wheel rims of yesteryear.
