A Datsun 510 that is an easy/worthy project.....with nothing hidden under Bondo,undercoating or 6 layers of paint.This is a bona fide southern Arizona car (Tucson) that is the cleanest unrestored car you will engine and some other pieces missing but it is 85% there. Anything metal is in great condition....anything plastic,rubber or fabric is thrashed.I stripped the car to bare steel and it has one coat of primer sealer. NO body fill......all dents and imperfections are in the pictures. An honest car....nothing hidden.....rolls and steers and is completely original. No modifications, welded in patches etc. All glass is there, (windshield cracked) and most trim is there.The trunk and engine bay have been taken down to bare steel, primed and a coat of paint be scuffed and topcoated with body color.If you want a 510 project this is it.Best you will find.Car is covered and stored in Tucson and I will assist in shipping as necessary.I am now at my summer residence so these are the only photos available.Clean notarized Arizona title in my name.

I have been inundated with enquiries about the Datsun so here is some additional information.....The car is extraordinarily clean of rust as shown. It had small rust under the hood near the latch which has been cleaned off and primed. Also surface rust on the inner upper C around the rear inner hat tray which is sand and paint.. The floor plans are original and clean,as are the inner and outer rockers, inner fenders, dog legs,wheel arches,trunk,front aprons and supports, and all the 510 rust prone areas. I had a shop in Tucson sand and and apply primer/sealer to the outer body to avoid flash rust.All the rubber seals and weatherstripping is totally dried crumbles if touched...baked. The car has been under cover in the desert for at least 15 years.Unfortunately I cannot provide more pictures as the car is in Tucson where I winter and I am located in the Pacific Northwest. I have owned the car for a year and started working on it but circumstances have changed. The title is 100% clean, in my name and notarized. It can be picked up for shipping 7 days a hours.Many people have asked what parts are included/missing. From memory...the car includes everything rolls and steers. Included is a 5 speed transmission, drive shaf, fuel tank,heater box,BAKED dash pad, door panels, carburetor, manifolds, distributor, exhaust,throttle linkage, clutch linkage, all brake linkage and booster, all glass, most of the chrome trim, rear bumper, radiator, all suspension components wiring harness- cabin and trunk sections -and fuse box.
Major components NOT present include long block (engine block and cylinder head), seats, front bumper, grill, front calipers,engine bay section of wiring harness and floor mats.This is the best I can do from memory. For all concerned...if you see a component in the pictures and/or it is articulated above it is included. Otherwise,consider it missing and if it is there ...bonus.Hopefully this helps with all enquiries. Good luck if you choose to bid.
