Nissan Cedric / Gloria JDM Car
JDM stands for Japan Domestic Market. Now it is used for Japan specification or Japanese custom style. A car sold exclusively in Japan is also referred to as JDM. Some car enthusiasts call Sushi and Tempura JDM, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.
In this article, I would like to introduce JDM Cars. That said, I think everyone knows the popular old Japanese cars like the Nissan Cedric / Gloria. That’s why I’m going to present little-known frantic car models, and indeed, popular car models in Japan. The first one is the Nissan Cedric.
It is a luxury sedan manufactured by Nissan Motor from 1960 to 2014. The first generation, the 30 Series, had a rounded windshield that looks like a 1950s American car. Many Japanese cars at the time were like smaller versions of American cars.
The second generation, the 130 series, which debuted in 1965, had a European design but did not have the same popularity. After minor changes it was remodeled towards the American style.
The 230 Series, which debuted in 1971 after the 130 Series, had a Coke bottle line design, and although the body size was smaller (overall length 184 inches, overall width 66.5 inches), it had an American car feel. By the way, since Nissan merged with Prince Motor Co. Ltd. in 1966, and Nissan sold two types of luxury cars, the Cedric and Gloria, but from the 230 series, they became brothers with a slightly different design.
The fourth generation, the 330 series, which debuted in 1975, looks exactly like an American car. Style makes us think about Dodge’s muscle car. Used cars were very popular among young people and became a popular remodeling basis for the Bosojoku style.
The 5th generation, the 430 series, which debuted in 1979, underwent major changes and had a linear design. The first Japanese passenger car with a turbo engine was actually the Cedric/Gloria, not the Skyline or Fairlady Z.
The V6 engine appeared in the 6th generation, the Y30 series, which debuted in 1983. The car was equipped with aero parts, and was popularly known as a “high-society (luxury)” car or VIP car. The 1980s style of “high-society” cars and VIP cars are now booming in Japan. I’m sure it will become popular in America.
In the 7th generation, the Y31 series, which debuted in 1987, a sporty grade called Gran Turismo appeared. Gloria’s Gran Turismo was used in the detective drama “Abunai Deka” and became very popular. It is a very popular grade car in Japan.
The 8th generation, the Y32 series, which debuted in 1991, had only a 4-door hardtop. Because the sedan had only a minor change from the Y31 series, and after that, the minor changes were repeated and it was produced until 2014.
