    Looking to trade my 90% restored 1970 datsun 510. Ive been restoring modifying it for half a year now but i just ran out of time and want a truck since we dont have any drag strips/tracks here. It is a 2 door sedan, which was bone stock when i got it. The car has come very far though. Im the 3rd owner, it says 60k on the odometer. I have the bonded title for it

    Stripped to bare metal, molded fender flares, and painted Honda Milano Red
    XXR 531's 16x8 brand new
    Falken low profile tires never even driven on
    Completely redone interior including new door panels, headliner, and carpet (black/red stitching)
    rhino-lined trunk
    Recaro replica seats
    repainted dash plastics and dash pad is fiberglassed so you can paint it or carbonfiber it
    12a rotary swap from a daily driver rx7 i owned
    street port
    custom headers/exhaust straight pipe
    racing beat intake manifold
    Holley 600 4 barrel carb
    10mm racing spark plug wires
    rx7 5 speed tranny
    shortened driveshaft
    smoked taillights
    i have all the parts you see missing, i took most the trim off and sandblasted / painted them black
    brand new weatherstripping for all the windows and doors
    have all the windows
    harness

    Heres a link to my build thread so you can look at everything thats been done: http://community.ratsun.net/topic/44380-69-2-door-build/

    I am looking for a long travel truck, i am open to anything just send me pics and info to 928-817-2185 I can send a lot more pics too
    I am located in Yuma, AZ but can travel to LA and surrounding areas or Northern phoenix

    Lol. Since he wants to trade for an LT truck guess he wants to go out in his terms blasting through a desert.

    Sweet looking car though

    Im guessing around the 8.5k-9.5k mark? You dont see many for sale on craigslist or anything. Its actually my friends but we live in an area with no drag strips, tracks or anything. Everybody here is into offroading since we have the dunes, tons of desert and everything right around us so he wants a truck to mess around with

    Quality paint shop man, even got the JOTO seal of approval. haha I keed, I keed

    The best bet to sell it in Yuma is at the Midnight at the Oasis carshow, but thats not till March.

    Props for doing such a huge restoration at your age

    Hahah dont worry its a nice paint job you have to see it in person :) my dad's been friends with him for a long time and has seen a lot of work he's done. I wasnt gonna take it somewhere unless i knew they did a good job. Me and my friend are constantly doing something on our cars/trucks, its a lot more fun to spend money on that stuff than things like $300 shoes

    My family have used shops like that for on a Jeep wrangler, Cherokee and old bronco. They have all came out looking great. Its the best bang for the buck since the most critical part of a paint job is prep work, and your Datsun was seems to be sanded down very well.
