It was discovered earlier this year in Petaluma and my friend in Napa went and checked it out for me. Car had been off the road since 1987, last registered in 86. Probably older than some of the members here, who knows. It was equipped with dual Solex carbs, the early Type 2 model, it has the big oil pan and has some kind of cam. This is in addition to a repaint, and full interior change. Someone loved this car a LOT, a long time ago... Bought it and after 2 months of carb rebuilding and general BS to deal with,it was ready for a drive home. I flew from LA and drove the car over 500 miles in one day. No major issues either. The love connection happened.
Neglected, but one of my favorite pics
Ready for the drive
After I got it home, I have been slowly prepping it for VARA. This was my first canyon run in SoCal with my neighbor and his sexy Alfa Romeo GTV
The Datsun held its own, even though it was on old tired suspension and a questionable chain trying to hold the motor together haha
Just finally got the front suspension installed which consists of Comp springs and special Bilsteins. I will be installing the rear soon. Still working on gathering the parts to pull the motor and install all new timing components too... Its a fun little car
Its not slammed on its balls, so you guys might not love it, but I do
