Is a 75 610 2dr with no drive train & with supposedly no rust worth $400? I have a line on one & going to try to get it for $300. Im in Cali so it would be perfect for a swap being 1975. If I get it, I'll post up some pics. Trying to add to the Datsun family. :)

If just the engine and transmission/driveshaft but may include the differential and half shafts. Make a list of what's missing because this will need to be replaced.

 

If 'just a rolling body' is it in good shape? All electrical wiring complete and un-molested? Can you put a battery in it and check the lighting for problems? Heater, wipers, signals all work? Interior complete and in good shape, dash not cracked, seats, headliner? All glass in good shape?

 

As the car can't be driven you cannot assess the suspension, steering or brakes so these are a big unknown. You could look for missing or damaged components. Modified or 'upgraded' brakes or suspension are a really BIG unknown as you don't know how well or safe it was done..

 

So with these questions answered is it worth $300??? Or is it a $300 car that needs $3,000 to be on the road??

Those are the big questions Datzenmike! I almost couldn't sleep thinking about those same questions... we all hope for that great score but these days those are far & slim. I have my finger & toes crossed! I'm going to check it out later today when the owner gets off of work. Hopefully it's not missing a lot of parts, not have major body damage & rust... thats one of the main things for me. I've dealt with my share of rusty cars & I stay away from them now. I'll post up an update. He mentioned something about a rare open driveline? I don't know what that means...?

Rule #1 about non running datsuns for sale, sellers love to claim things are rare to justify a price. When I bought my 510, the guy claimed it was setup for autocross. I guess stock ride height, stock suspension and brakes, and replacement rear shocks was a bitchin setup. These days, $300 for any datsun capable of being put back together is pretty decent.
Chrome door handles are under rated.

I think the 73 610 door is more desirable (for the tail lights?), but $400 seems like a great price.. given the ONLY thing missing is the motor and tranny. When you start looking for other parts.. trim.. tail lights.. etc... yeah good luck.

Thanks, I'm going to need all the luck I can get. I'm hoping just the motor & tranny are missing. I can deal with that. These cars are so hard to locate where I live & Cali prices are way up.

 I think a 2 door 610 is hard to get anywhere these days!

First one I have seen around here since I've been looking. Even if it's not to my expectations but has a solid body I'm going to still pick it up & put it away. We'll see what happens later today.

Probably means the IRS (independent rear suspension) with the differential fixed in position and a driveshaft down to each rear wheel. Absolutely NOT rare!!!. ALL 610 sedans had this, and it is pretty much identical to the earlier 510. The 610 wagon is a solid rear axle.

That's what I was thinking Datzenmike. The way he explained it didn't make sense.
@Ratsun, I'll be sure to post pics if I get it or not.

Hard to not find $300 worth of parts in it. You may consider it a parts car and keep looking. Never hurts to have extra of everything.

 

 

Who got Bonvo's 610? What ever happened to it?

Well, I didn't get it, wasn't a 2dr & missing too many parts. No wonder the owner didn't want to text me any pics.

On a good note, I picked up an extremely rare 72 corona mark 2 6 cyl coupe! No motor, trannys there.

I remember that mk2 being on craigslist for awhile. I never understood why no one ever bought it. The car seemed like a decent place to start or a good parts car. I contacted the guy to try to buy the bumpers but no dice.

I found out that the 6 cylinder mark 2 coupes are extremely rare, they have a different x frame and a little different than the 4 cyl models. I think is a great looking car, reminds me of a 610.
