1972 Datsun 510 2dr

NO RESERVEI have always had a soft spot for these little 1968-1973 Datsun 510's. My first experience in one of these cars goes back to around 1976. I was born in 1970 and my mom started going to a local church. She and some friends were invited to go over to this guys house from church one day he was into race cars is all I knew. Well he had this little 1970 510 2dr (I know the year because I was impressed it was 6 the same as me) all roll caged with some hot engine in it and he took us for rides in it I never have done so many donuts on a public road before in my life this car was awesome very quick just amazing. Now I know I was 6 years old and obviously didn't know a thing about driving a car but this guy I believe knew what he was doing and it was impressive. Turns out my mom was not to found of the guy lol and my Datsun racing career was over. Anyways I have never had the chance since to own one of these cars closest I got was a handful of Datsun 240Z's Fairlady Roadsters and one 510 Wagon (that I never did anything with). These cars have always been very popular but they are one of the cars that many collectors today and snapping up. The Japanese collector cars are finally getting noticed and highly desirable. It is hard to find a good 510 lets face it these cars had very good quality but there were throw away cars they weren't ever intended to last this long. Datsun wanted to build an economical car to compete with everyone else but as soon as these cars hit the shores of the USA they instantly were favored by Racers. Pete Brock built his BRE program around these cars these are awesome cars and totally a hit on the race track and the streets. This car was bought new by a young lady named Lorene out of Fremont California from PierrottiMotors in 1972. This dealership is still in business today but believe under the name Premier Nissan of Fremont. This carwas her daily driver formany years but itgot side lined in the mid 1980's.Shemoved out of California to Myrtle Creek Oregon wereshedrove it sparingly.At that time she said the car only had 45K this was in 1997. She passed away a number of years ago and the car got parked in her brothers barn. A retired gentleman got it from him about 6 years ago at that time the car registered 49K. The car was parked for sometime but as soon as he got it he started to get it back on the road healso claims 49Koriginal miles on it. Ido have an old registration from the car in 1997 were she wrote 45194. Looking at the car especially the interior the floor the scuff plate the pedals the seat wear I believe it is 49K original miles. But I do not have any major receipts to back that up but just being around the car it looks like it. With that saidwhen you here 49K original miles most people think garaged and mint remember the car was stored in abarn for manyyears it was driven and it is 44 years old.My friendis a retired gentleman with a small collection ofcarsand he decidedthat he needs to slow down a bithe was a friend of a friend he knew I was buying the car to resell so no surprises here that is what I do for a living pretty obvious. Anyways Iam just a little guy in a big pond but I only buy cars that I really like things thatbring back my youth is what really attracts me to cars especially this one cars that are unique and interesting I just don't buy anything it has to be special. That experience in that 1970510 was along lastingexperience I can remember like it was yesterday. This little 510you see before you is in great shape for a 510 it is a Survivor original interior original engine compartment you are going to see some things on thiscar that are aways missing on these. The dash pad and interior are amazing the floors the trunk area are in awesome condition.Mechanically this car runs awesome. It starts right up just runs like a sewing machine. Believe me when you drive this carit feels so great out on the road. I had the valves adjusted by a Datsun mechanic and the rockers are amazing little to no wear under the valve cover was amazing clean see picture of the rockers you can tell a lot about an engine from these. It does not blow any smoke or burn oil no major oil leaks. The little 1600 has very good power it is not tired it runs awesome. It has new exhaust all the way back in nice condition. The transmission is an automatic it shifts perfect very smooth kick down works etc. The rearend looks great no noise. The running gear is very sound in this little 510 the ride is perfect it is not a worn out car which make me believe the 49K original miles. The brakes all work great disc upfront and drums in the rear. This car you could fly in and drive it home if you like it is an old car obviously but it is a great running car. It has no rattles or squeaks pretty amazing. Condition:This510 is not a trailer queen itwas used like many of them it has been repainted its original color. The paint is a veryamateurpaint job at best nothing to brag about. It looks great from20ft away under lights it looks worse. Out in the natural light or sun it looks good you an see flaws here and there outside but looks decent most people wouldn't notice but as you come closer you will notice things about the paint lots of sanding scratches a little wavy down the sidespainted over some dings etc. There was a repair to the drivers side rear quarter panel. What his car really needs isa very nice paint job everythingelse you don't wantto touch it because it is original a total timecapsule. This is nicer then most 510's that you have seen on Ebay or elsewhere. It is very solid it has not been modified it is extremely stock which is refreshing and very hard to find. The floors frame rails all the inner aprons upfront look very good taillight panel in excellent condition. The structure of this little 510 is awesome. I took lots of pictures of it underneath so you can get a good idea of what it is. If you can come in person to look before you bid then that would be even better. The grill is in great shape the chromeon the car needs to be restored but it is all there. There isa little bit of rust in the usually places but pretty minor. Thebottom of the passenger quarter panel behind the wheel has some bubbles going on.around the taillights there is some minor bubbling. The trunk pan is in excellent condition most of these are rusted out. You will even see theoriginal spare and jack in the car. Also notice in trunk the original mat and cardboard backing blocking off the rear seat area and package tray. Thedrivers quarter panel has had repairer it not sure if it was replacedyou can see somenon factory spot weldsinside the wheel lip. The car isvery solid inperfect conditionfor someone to do a minor exterior restoration on it it would not take that much to do the car. Or just drive it and enjoy it for what it is itturnsheads every where I goin it it is a show stopper because you just don't see a510 this clean at the same time especially the interior.Everything works on the car. All the exterior lights turn signals even has all for original headlights still in it very surprising after 44 years can you believe this car is 44 years old now. Anways the interior is in great condition I wouldn't do a thing just minor detailing and call it good.Theheater works great wipers all working. The seats are original they have a little wear but in great shape. The door panels are amazing no water warping the rear panels sale way. The rear seat has never been sat in. All the seatbelts are in excellent condition. When was the last time you ever saw a dash pad not cracked on these. Very little wear on the original floor mats almost perfect besides a little wear on were your heal goes when you are on the gas pedal. The headliner is perfect no stains no rips or tears. All the gauges work all the interior lights underneath the dash is amazing no hacked up wires. Car has always been adult owned and a NON smoker. You will notice it is a factory Radio delete car whichyou do not see that often.
