Up for sale is a Datsun 510 2 door that I have owned on and off over the years.
Got this car in 2005 from an older man that had not driven the car since the late 80’s.
Car was originally painted a green color from the factory but was painted white at some point. Cleaned out gas tank and put new rubber fuel hoses and fuel filler neck hose on. Rebuilt brake and clutch master cylinder, clutch slave and replaced rear drum wheel cylinders and got brakes working.
Car has Weber 2 barrel downdraft carburetor, 4 cylinder L16 motor, manual transmission and aluminum wheels. Front driver floor pan has a “For Sale” sign installed by previous owner covering hole. Passenger floor pan has some rust holes and will need to be replaced as well as the drivers if it is to look original. Rear seat floor pans are in good shape, a little rust around the body plugs. Spare tire well was rusted out and has had a patch welded in by previous owner. Left and right rear quarters have some damage. Hood had rust around the latch and had hood pins put in. Frame of car is in great shape. Rear seat cover separating at the seams.
Got everything working on the car and was daily driven occasionally over a couple of years. Tried to keep car as original as possible and use factory parts. I Sold the car in 2008 and bought it back in 2011 from different person. Car was still running but rear differential had a cracked spider gear and will need fixing before driving. Subaru rear axles had the same rear end as the early Datsuns and are readily available. I put the car into storage and have not had time to work on the car since then.
Will need fresh fuel, battery, cables and rear end fixed to be drive-able.
