Up for sale is my 1972 Datsun 510. This car has an interesting history, t was ordered new by an old lady in a small town in Idaho. The story goes the only way she would buy a 510 is if she could get it orange with white interior and a white vinyl top. The car no longer has the vinyl top, t was removed somewhere along the way and painted white. But the color combination is still rare. I am the second owner. The paint is original, nd has been buffed out. There are alot of scratches and dings, o major dents. The passenger rear door was backed into and replaced which is why the color on that door is a little off (no damage was done to anything else but the door). There is no carpet in the car, he car had torn up red 280zx seats in it when I got it, o I replaced them with some period correct buckets that would look great if they were reupholstered. The door panels are in decent shape but not great, he rear seat is also original and torn up. It has a240z wheel, nd the dash is cracked.There are scratches in the front glass but no chips or cracks in any of the glass. The front facia is a little beat up, here was no front bumper on the car when I got it, nd the rear bumper was rusty, do have the rear bumper though. The car is what it is as you can see. The car shows around 92,000 miles, ut the engine is very very clean (see pic of valve cover off) so I suspect it may have a new engine. It has a webber carb and runs great, ut the starter sticks once in a while and the car uses water. There is NO water in the oil, ut I do have a new head gasket and top end gasket set that will come with the car. The car is an automatic, nd shifts great. This is my wife and I's daily driver and it's been a great car as long as you watch the temp and top off the water. It's been a hot summer and the car has done fine. It attracts SO much attention everywhere it goes. Very fun to drive. The floors and trunk are original and completly solid, he ONLY rust in the car is what's pictured in the rockers and drivers rear fender. Very solid, reat start to a restoration, ustom build or driver as is! New tires, ew pads, ew master, ew gas tank, ew lines, ew filter, ew fluids. Well taken care of. Lights, linkers, ipers, orn work.There are no working interior lights besides the console, ashers don't work. I think I've covered everything but feel free to ask anyquestion! More pictures availible upon request. Car is forsalelocally, reserve the rightto end the action. ONLY BID IF YOU ARE SERIOUS. CLEAN TITLE!

My wife and I are moving in september so the car must be picked up in August!

*********UPDATE! PLEASE READ!***. *****. ****** This is the last revision I promise. The car is running like a top. New head gasket, ead cleaned and resurfaced, ll new top end gaskets including intake/exhaust gasket. Compression reads.. #1: 150 lbs #2: 155 lbs #3: 160 lbs #4: 155 lbs The accelerator pump diaphragm is leaking fuel so I'm not driving it, ut I will order one today. Again the car is running great. I forgot to mention before the car has had new NGK plugs, ew wires, nd tune up kit recently as well as new exhaust with a glass pack, ar sounds great.
