So I've been on the prowl for a 510 for a while and I finally found one i could afford. Initially was looking for a 2dr but i would've taken a 4dr without question. CL was good to me and I found this beauty and picked her up today for a great price.

She's a 1971, 4dr, auto column shift. all original and as complete as they get. Everything works except for the speedo but that's an easy fix. well enough talk, on with the pics. :D

she's a little rough around the edges, but nothing a little blood, sweat and beers can't fix. Plans for now are to go more lower and buff out the paint. Eventually down the road I want to get a single side draft weber, swap out the auto with a 5 speed I have laying around, and new exhaust. but before any of that happens i gotta get the 521 back on the road. totally stoked to be part of the 510 gang again though. :w00t:

I was so anxious cause the guy said he had 2 guys that were gonna go look at it yesterday and i thought for sure it was gonna be sold by today. but they flaked and i swooped in. Had to walk 17 blocks in SF to meet the guy.

The unbelievably large number of flakes in the Datsun scene is a double edged sword.. often it works against you, but once in a while to your advantage.

Congratulations! Nice find!

Very nice. This was how you used to see them around here all the time.
Why do the outside mirrors always go MIA? Mine was also missing when I got it.

What transmission is in this bish? B/W or JATCO? This is the second 71 column shift Ive seen today so Im hoping this one works out in my favor... I dont see the B/W emblem on the back, but maybe that only came on earlier models.

Either way, sweet find.

4 doors ..... no whores :crying:

hmmm. good question. where do I look to find out? there is a missing emblem on the left side of the rear panel. I'll take a closer look to see if i can tell from the silhouette.
