Thought I'd do a build thread for the newly acquired dato. Not the first 210, rather the second. First a desert yellow 2 door A15 w/ ac and the whole ten yards of dealer options. This is one is quite different, except for that of the body shape.
Back History: It was first sold at the former Courtesy Datsun down in Fairfield, CA in 1981. Was driven around the bay and eventually the owner moved up to the Sacramento area. It resided there up until my purchase. It was in the late 90's early 2000 that it was parked because of failed smog. Sat in the garage till 07/02/16. Property was being cleaned up by the PO I purchased from. It was given to him by the Og owner. What the deal was between the two is unknown to me but I do say that the PO was the first to have the vehicle out in the rain from what the vehicle looked like.
PO made no tempt to get the vehicle running or driving rather got the paperwork straighten out and made a flip out of it. It was at-least 2 months on craigslist before I took the decision to buy it sight unseen. Couple of days chat and 1 week later it was in my possession, 02/06/17. This gives ya an Idea how long PO had it for.
From here on its in my possession: The arrival day was raining, foggy and depressing. None the less I was freaking out and hoping for it not to be a rust-bucket. As the tow rig made it's way down the street it looked awesome! Ya, it was nasty but no rust on the externals of the body. Hope prevailed. Further body search internally revealed none either. Or the underside either for that matter. I repent not taking images of the pool of water it had in the trunk area, it looked like shit.
