Hi everyone, I need help in this opportunity I have in buying a 1970 Datsun 1600 Roadster. The car has been sitting in the garage for a long time, without ever turning on. It seems the car does not have the original motor but I could be wrong. Additionally it looks like the top has been modified and does not fit properly. The tags are expired and last registered in Los Angeles, CA. It shows 61,000+ miles on the odometer. Inteior looks decent with some cosmetic damage and possible rust. I don't know anything about this type of car and if its worth restoring it.
My questions if you guys could help me with is, based on the pictures and the brief description, what would be a fair market value to pay for this car?
How much would it cost to restore it based on this brief overview and is it worth it?
Lastly, does anyone know any good mechanic who knows about Datsun and will assist me in restoring it, if I purchase it? (Los Angeles area)
Thanks for the help.
