Car is SOLD!!
*Edit Price Increase I want to sell it but I need money as well
I am located in Aurora Colorado. A very beautiful Datsun 510 Wagon. So I bought this car back in fall of 2010. I have been putting about 150 miles a month on the car ever since I got her, a couple of months more than that. She is an antique and qualifies for classic tags. I really like this car, stock everything except the motor and trans, but I am really looking more for a super cheap commuter. As my 1975 Datsun 280z is my garage queen.

I cannot express how clean this car is I try to be honest so I talk down the overall car, but seeing is believing this car is so clean, and comes with a TON of extra parts if wanted mostly odds and ends some extra lenses , this being said the car isn't perfect it is still a 1971 Datsun I have tried to give a nice bulleted list below. ·
The interior is clean

o New Carpet in good shape

o Rear Seat original no rips or tears in great shape

o Front seats from a newer 90's nissan in good shape

o Dash has a cap on it and is warping on the edges from heat

o No Sun visors installed (I have some they are black and tan just not installed)

o Seat belts in the front Seat are new and in good shape

o I have the original rear seat belts but they are not installed

o All of the Knobs and switches work

o An added Toggle switch for the electric radiator fan

o No radio installed but I do have it, and the radio face has not been hacked up

o Gauge Cluster is from the 1997 Nissan Hardbody pickup the engine came from

o Sound deadening under the carpet

o Heater works, as well as the fresh Air vents

o No pedal on the gas pedal just the bar, it takes some getting used to but it is still drive-able, a pedal is on my list of things to pick up just haven't

o Passengers door handle is missing the rear retaining clip

o Rear hatch panel is not installed I have it but it isn't in the best shape I was waiting for Pare' Composites to get one so I could order that

o The temperature gauge wasn't working so I put a mechanical gauge in the cluster

· Exterior straight and complete

o All body panels in great shape

o Paint is in good shape, has a few nicks and is honestly is a 20ft paint job but it looks good enough

o The chrome trim is all there and looks nice

o All the lights (Brake, Turns, Running, and Headlights) All work

o Grill is complete and in good shape

o Decals and badges are all there and in good shape, the front Datsun Emblem is off the car it is passable but not great

o I have the equipment for the spare tire, but no spare tire

o Under carriage is all solid no rust holes or anything near that

o No hood prop the Air filter interferes with the stock prop



· Drivetrain

o KA24E FI engine from a 1997 Nissan Hardbody Pickup

o The engine has a very small oil leak it seems to be coming from the oil pressure sensor near the oil filter but doesn't seem to burn any oil.

o Some of the emissions equipment was removed so the check engine light stays on, but things like the Oil pressure warning light works for this engine in the cluster

o Starts and runs every day has a belt squeal for about 1 second when I start her in the morning

o Tires in great shape

o Rims in good shape

o Trans and Rear differential full on fluid and seem in good shape (I haven't taken them apart or anything)

o Brakes work and stop quickly

o The rear differential is geared a little too tall for my liking it makes going down the highway at a higher RPM then I would like

· Suspension is all stock

o Front and rear are at stock ride height

o Some of the bushings are starting to show some age but are all there

o It does have some creaks in the suspension but I have had this car @ 80mph+ and didn't feel a concern from the suspension

<br style="mso-special-character:line-break">

The car could use some finishing touches such as gas pedal, stereo, and a rear hatch interior panel (I have the original but it is very beat up). It isn't perfect but this is a clean goon that I have been daily driving every day for a year now including when it was dropping to 0 degrees here during Colorado winters. This car has not been abused or raced it has been a great car I tried to clean up my advert please read it in its entirety I have most likely forgot things but I will be as honest as I can please feel free to ask questions. This car is sold As-Is with no warranty.



I also have plenty of spare parts to go with the car including some rear glass as well as old seat belts and headlights. More pictures upon request. I will be as honest as I possibly can and really don't want to sell the car, but I could really use the extra cash to finance the move. An extra KA24E distributor, plenty of trim pieces and stuff. Call/text me for more info Aaron (620) 506-2230 or email all is good

*Edited 26 Aug 2011*
When speaking to an interested party I realized I didn't put in this advert that the previous owner removed the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) equipment. Which changes the emissions a bit, In Colorado cars with antique tags are not required to get emissions tested.

Thank you she really is in great shape very straight and really a beauty, just time to thin out my stable for a while. And since I will probably never sell my Z the 510 will have to go.

@Kelmo- Thank you for the compliment,Yes I know it is a bit expensive I wish I could make it cheap (I don't think you were trying to insult me or anything), but it really is restored and in perfect condition so I am willing to hold out for more money.

That looks like a $6K wagon to me.

I came here today to chew some bubblegum and kick some ass. Right now I'm all out of bubblegum. 

 

My biggest fear is that when I die, My wife will sell my cars for what she thinks I have in them.

Thank you guys for the compliments. I agree this car is worth more than 4200 I am honestly just trying to get my money back out of it, If I sell it at this price I will not be making a profit, I will be taking a slight loss, but I need the money for moving costs and just want the car sold. This car I feel is worth every bit of $5k and the person to buy would still be getting a very good deal. Datrod thank you for the compliment as your goon is what all clean wagons aspire to be.

I usually don't post up on FS ads unless I'm going to buy (and I wish I was here!) but I'd have to agree with Datrod. Don't let her go too easily, that is a strong wagon you got there.

Sounds good come down take a look, I really do love this car it is all right there no problems driving it, I live so close to work that I should be riding my bike, and I can do that for the next couple months while I look for a perfect daily driver for winter.
