WOW, what a great score. How did you find the low mileage 510 ?

You never mentioned but what are your plans for the "dime"mon.

also Welcome to NWDatsun, you need to get some NWDatsun stickers on it.

That's the one. She got out to open the gate and the car rolled back into the dumpster, minor damage "pic below"Bought new in Florida brought to CA. in 1971, owner died in 97, daughter drove it every month or so untill the battery died in 1999 and it sat in that barn until I rescued it. Plans so far are to drive the wheels off it, but plans have been known to change from time to time.

and the second time this fender got creamed!
