For sale is my 71 Datsun 510 wagon. I don't want to sell the car, I don't need the money and am only selling for personal sentimental reasons so don't waste my and your time with low offers. I really love this car and it's very difficult for me to sell but like all good things in life they pass and you eventually have to move on.
I've included many pictures in the link below so you can see all the faults. If you come see the car you will realize that it is much better overall than all the problems shown here, however I didn't want to waste your time either so I've included as many visual problems as I could. There are many little details I've fixed or upgraded that I'll point out in person but most people want to know what's wrong with it so the pictures show that. There is one spot of rust on the rear drivers side in front of the back wheel. The brake lights quit working but the running lights still work so its either a wire or the switch. I have a new switch but have not installed it. I also have many other spare parts including an almost mint, with a hairline crack, dashpad that will be included in the sale. You will get all things Datsun I own with the purchase of this car. The car runs really well!
The current setup has about 4,500 miles on it. 4,500 miles ago I put in a rebuilt 280zx 5-speed tranny, new clutch, new clutch slave, low miles L16 (I was told this by the person I bought it from but can't verify), rebuilt SUs by Z-Therapy, flushed, fixed and sealed radiator, new alternator, new water pump etc. etc. etc. There are many new parts but those are what everyone seems to ask about. The brakes and suspension have not been upgraded to Z car specs and are original to 510s. Yes, the paint on the front drivers side fender is newer than the rest of the car. A few years back a guy hit that fender and it was replaced and repainted.
I've had the car for at least 5 years and have done a ridiculous amount of work on it to get it this far. It was my ex's daily driver on an hour commute every day in SoCal for a few years and I've driven it everywhere. If you are interested in seeing the car or discussing it more please give me a call or come by. I'd rather talk to you on the phone then go back and forth via email. I live in Long Beach and my phone number is below.
I'm asking $4,000 strictly based on what I see these listed for in SoCal right now. I will take the best offer if my price is too high. As I said before I don't want to sell the car and don't need the money, but am doing it for personal reasons, so please don't waste my time or yours.
Thanks for your interest.
Additional pictures of the car are here. They are all current, the exterior images were taken yesterday, 1/15/2013, and interior a couple weeks before when I was going to list it. http://esimpsonphoto.com/1971-datsun-510-wagon/
