As it states I'm merely testing the waters to see what possible trade options are available to me...I am in no rush at all to sell or trade this car so again this is testing the water...

Car is located in socal

This is my 1970 510. It's been a great car and runs very well. Car has been takin care of for the most part but could use some work here n there. This car was in a good friend of mines family for over 20 years. It currently still holds a clean title. The body was in overall decent shape up until a few weeks ago a lady hit the car as she was leaving her parking spot right next to mine. Sounds hard to believe I know but the pics will explain it all. Car was borderline salvaged but I fought tooth and nail w the insurance adjusters to hold the clean title givin the circumstance of the incident. See pics below after reading through the post......

Specs on the car

1970 2 door clean title

Motor/Trans:
~L18sss block w ported peanut close chamber head. Unknown mileage but runs strong w decent comp across the board.
~weber 32/36
~Mild cam/ specs unknown but very noticeable at idle
~Accel coil

~electronic distributor
~electric fan
~New alternator
~Newer voltage regulator
~280zx 5 speed trans

-rear wheel cylinders rebuild

Interior/Exterior
~fibreglass front splitter
~Has Nissan low ride plaid front seats
~rear seat was re-upholstered by the previous owners in the early 2000's
~factory 510 floor mats front n back/ car has no carpet
~no headliner atm but I have all the crossbows to have one made
~OG solex door n trunk locks
~Battery relocated to custom batt tray in the trunk
~all emblems on the car except grill badge was stolen
~ car was repainted about 3 years ago. It looked good when it was done but there r cracks in some areas at this time. Still shines when washed though.
~all glass in great shape
~working windshield wipers


Rear floor pans were replaced, has quarter size rust hole on the driver floorpan.

Cons:
The rust hole, bare interior for the most part, blinker switch has a short, valves could use a little adjusting,passenger window slowly falls while driving over bumps since the accident.

I'm sure there's plenty more I'm forgetting but oh well. It's a great car n has been my daily driver for some time now. trades I'm considering would be as followed...

Clean ae86 hatch(this would be numbe 1), clean s13 or s14's w minor mods not looking for shitty missiles or beat up piles etc....no fwd and no 2 seaters plz....

if i have to post a sale price itd be
$5400obo

Lol cus she had some low budget full coverage insurance. They valued the car at $1100 and the damage over $500 worth n called it a total loss n wanted to send me a $400 check. I fought w them n brought up small claims court n they decided the car wasn't a total loss n gave me a few pennies, a nickel n silver dollar n let me keep the title. N no she was juggling cigs n a 6pk of wine coolers wich I'm most certain was not her first of the nite

This is merely y I'm posting. I've gone through a lot thus far w the car n I just am not having the kind of income I had being a flag technician to pull out of pocket to get Ur back to the place I already had it. I really don't care if I sell or not, its just a weird feeling torwatds it now as if that lady took something from me. Idk lol

So, is it for sale? Rant thread? Or just show-n-tell? I'm not sure I understand the point of a "testing the waters" ad.

So sue her in small claims court for the difference, When she can't or won't pay, have the marshall seize her car, auction it off and get your car professionally restored.

ro510~
Sweet man well I'm not sure who he was I had a lot of interest today since posting.

As to everyone else lol. The car is for sale for the right price basically. My asking price is definitely not set in stone but if there is nothing but lowballers trying to weezle their way into a 510 ill have no problem keeping her. If it came to a trade it would be something as I posted but as it sits now more into selling outright as I have my eyes set on a few other projects.. thanks guys

Poor Audi...haha just kidding.  Sucks you're in this predicament and hope the insurance kicks it up a notch or you get a buyer!

Yea its just a cosmetic default nothing crazy at all. N yea i tgink the insurance is set in ITS ways already. Small claims is just gonna be an outdrawn hastle they kept the title clean n that was my main concern.
