The Elusive Survivor!
We've all seen beautifully restored classic automobiles. The body comes off, the enginecomes out, the interior is redone and every part of the vehicle is evaluated, refurbished orreplaced before reassembly. These efforts come with descriptions like "no expense spared"and "better than new". The end results can be visually stunning and financially staggering!
Then there's that "other" genre of classic automobiles. They have the mystique and magicof objects that time has somehow forgotten. You won't hear about the extensive restoration,it hasn't occurred. Like an enigma that has somehow turned back the hands of time,lovingly cared for or, in some cases, sparingly reserved for special occasions.
"Survivors"appear to be experiencing a new found appreciationamong auto enthusiasts. Survivors may not be perfect, yetthat is, in many cases, what makes them perfect. They havetranscended the boundary of time and escaped an onslaughtof use and abuse. Where the others have failed, they havesomehow prevailed. Their owners may have taken them outof the game early or perhaps just had the wisdom to maintain, appreciate and protect whatthe manufacturer designed and built so many years ago. When it comes to Datsun 510', this istruly a Unicorn.
- 2 owner car.
-The original ownerput the majority of the miles on by 1980. From 1980 - 2010 the car was onlydriven 7,000 miles.

Light pea soup green is the best way to describe the color of this car ( paint code 546). The paint and bodyare in amazing shape. Always stored indoors.This is a very straight rust free car.It's all original paint with the exception of a small area by the drivers door handle where it was keyed years ago. Refer to the last pictur, I have outlined the area in white that was repainted. There is a small dent above the Datsun emblem on the drivers side fender from a fawn running into it in 2010. This can be completely removed by paintless dent removal, I can have this done for the new owner before delivery at their request. There is a paint touch up that will have to be done as well above the dent. All Chrome, britework, and moldings are in exceptional shape
The Interior on this car is pretty much like new. All gage faces are crystal clear, beautiful dash, everything still looks crisp. All glass is scratch and pit free. Passenger seat is separating at the seam from age but apart from that theseats show no real wear, headliner is perfect. The carpet has slight fading on the tunnel. This is an original AC car but is missing the compressor
Sincere bidders only please. Payment by wire transfer. Good luck !
