1978 Datsun Other B210 GX
Offered for an appreciating new owneris this groovy classic 1978 Datsun B210 GX hatchback.
Finished in fire engine red over black, this 40 year-old classic shows just over 88,000 miles on it's working five digit odometer, I am told, and believe that it is original though I cannot 100% verify this. With that being said, this little Datsun sports the original California blue license plate, a great running 78 horsepower 1400 cc four cylinder engine mated to the factory 4 speed manual transmission, 13" mesh wheels with excellent Khumo rubber, old am/fm stereo, Datsun floor mats, factory A/C and lots of NEW parts including exhaust system driveshaft, shocks, clutch, clutch slave and master cylinders and ALL fluids freshly serviced. This is a great value here on ebay for about the cost of the sales tax alone on a new Maxima!
THE BODY AND TRIM
The exterior of this car is in good, 99.9% dry, clean rust-free condition overall with a nice overall shine to the paint. I would label this as a good "driver-quality" example with its share of nicks, scratches, faded spots, repainted area and other cosmetic blemishes.
As I hope is articulated in the photos here, the interior of this 1978 Datsun is in quite good condition overall with clean door panels and headliner, working horn, lights, dome light, blinkers and gauges and even the stereo works! The steering wheel is nice, the odometer and trip computer both turn with weak points inside the car that include A/C not blowing cold [and have not attempted recharging it], dash cracks, mismatched seats and general wear and tear fitting a 40 year-old car. The spare tire, jack and wheel chock are present under the rear hatch mat too!
THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This classic B210 GX starts easily and runs very well with willing acceleration form the 78 horsepower engine with crisp tight shifting and excellent clutch feel with and tight and responsive steering. While the car recently received four new wheel cylinders and pads, there is still a pedal wobble under braking as well as a slight heat shield rattle at certain rpms. Overall this is a fun eye-catching little classic that garners attention wherever you drive.
