Believe it or not this is an ' antique " now. 


Here is your chance to own an unrestored, original time capsule.  We have an extensive collection of original cars and are slowly reducing what we own.  The older I get the less maintenance I want to do and the more I want to just drive the cars.   This was pulled out of storage in our collection after sitting for some time. 
This is a 1978 Datsun 510 wagon from Tennessee.  All original with the following exceptions.  
Due to age and for safety  we replaced the following. 
1.  battery   
2. 4 x tires   
3.  wheel cylinders and flex hoses   
4.  complete engine tune up    
5. Lube / oil / filter /rear end fluid and brake fluid were all flushed changed and refilled.
6. Fuel tank flush and fuel filter.    
7.  interior carpet.   
The car has been buffed to a high shine to restore the faded paint and there is ZERO rust or body damage.  Interior has been cleaned and the carpets are being replaced due to staining / sun fading and musty smell this week or next ( depending on when the carpet arrives )  
The ONLY thing I have found wrong with the car after having it for the time I have , are the 2 missing fender emblems. 
The car starts right up and runs and drives well.  I wouldn't hesitate to take it anywhere if that was your wish.  It needs to be driven instead of just sitting in our storage building.  
The car does have the following options. Clock, Air conditioning.  I assume the rest were standard Datsun issue but not sure.  It has an automatic transmission, manual brakes and steering , am/fm radio, fold down rear seat. 
If you have questions just ask.  If you want to see or drive the car, just ask. We have more than enough cars and we do not want anything in trade so if you send an email asking if we will take something in trade, it will be ignored.
As this is a 42 year old car, it is sold as is, where is, with no warranties.   As of today's date, everything on the car is working like the day the car was made.   I am limited in space here with photos so if you want more , just email me and I can send them all to you. 
$ 14,995 or best offer
