Hey guys. I've been lurking on Ratsun on and off for the last couple of years. I've always wanted a Datsun (Especially a 411 SSS  Wagon or a 610 Wagon) ever since I was in High School when I got my license, but I needed something that I could rely on so I bought a newer Civic as a daily. Since then, I also bought an 06 S2000 (still have), a 93 Civic Si (traded), a 90 240sx (still have), and as of today, 1/8/17, a 610 goon. My S2000 is my Auto-X toy, my S13 is my project drift car, and the goon will be my new side project. For now, I just want to lower it and fix any minor problems it has. Other than some slight surface rust and a dent on the fender, the car is a perfect chassis to start with.

 

I will update as much as possible. I have a few debts to pay before I do any major modding. Here's a couple pictures!

Possibly a couple of months ago. My buddy bought it and had it on Modesto Craigslist for about a month and I decided I'd pick it up.

Small Update: 1/19

 

Car needs a carb and a wiring harness to be gone through since it appears that rats have infested the car at some point. It also needs a good cleaning, which I will do once I bring it back to my place in a few weeks.

 

First on the agenda: Flush all fluids and replace/rebuild carb. Need this car to run decently well.

Update #2: 2/23

 

Bought a Weber 32/36 and the rebuild kit for it. Going to rebuild the Carb and see it run hopefully!

New Redline carbs are $300 and.... NEW. Rebuild kits won't fix worn throttle shaft or damage. You might have a 32/36 from a '76 Pinto that's been rebuilt 6 times and has 6 missing parts and 2 extra. Hope this works out for you  though.

I wasn't aware of this. Too late now though. I've been a bit busy lately with work and school. Haven't even gotten to the carb yet.

The weber carb was successful! Thanks to a bunch of the local Datsun guys! This is my first tackle with anything carb besides my 69 bug, but that doesn't count because it never ran :sweat: Within the next couple of weeks, I plan on doing a bunch of maintenance now, after that I will start to clean it out. Remove everything, refinish/replace things as needed and go from there until I'm ready to start doing some mods like 280zx brakes/coilovers, wheels, and little things here and there. Enjoy some of the pictures my buddy took today! BTW, that's me in the wagon in both pics lol

Small update: Placed a deposit on some SSR Longchamp XR4's. Pictures are of the ones that will be shipped to me in May. They will eventually be relipped and polished. Hopefully do one pair in May and the other pair in June.

So you were the owner prior to Carlos? Very cool! I'll definitely be hitting you up when it's up and running properly. Oh and registered lol I need to resurface the head and replace the head gasket since the engine oil was a little milky.

Quick update. Just ordered some 280zx front struts and brakes. I'll convert them to coilovers and install them some time within the month.

I've learned to bring a compression gauge when buying cars and engines... I've also learned my compression gauge is broken...

If i would jave kept it i wouldnt care.
I fired it up once. About 23 seconds for a video to prove it runs.
I sold it to andy here. Cool dude for not flipping out on me. But we get it to run longer with the weber. Checked the oil and nothing but chocolate milk. You live and learn i guess.¯\_(ツ)_/¯
