Now that I'm married. my wife wants a new kitchen. so I'm selling some things to help finance it… my loss is your gain.

Here's a youtube video I made the other day so you can see it running through the gears. unfortunately it was rainy out so I did what I could.  https://youtu. be/Z0nm9CL3c78

I bought this car back in 1998 and finished restoration in 1999.   It was a started restoration project and the car had all new floor pans. rocker panels and rear quarters welded on and the whole thing was dipped.   My goal was to build this car into a reliable “driver” that could be run on the highway while keeping with an A-series engine.   When I put this car together. every part was sandblasted and epoxy painted. This car has always been stored indoors and has never been out during the winter.  Below is a list of improvements:

1275 A series built by Pat Morrison (Morrison Performance-builds nascar engines ) rebuilt ported head- hotter cam

5-speed Datsun 210 gearbox conversion only 3k miles on it

Custom One wire Alternator

Hotter sport ignition coil

Original magnesium made in England Cosmic racing rims-brought over from England

390 rear end gears

Carrera racing gas shock conversion on front and rear

Front Sway bar

Rebuilt front suspension and steering

Stiffer aftermarket front coil springs

Weber two barrel downdraft carb

Electric fuel pump

Tubular exhaust header

New Electronic distributor with correct advance curve for tuned engine.

2015- new brake master cylinder. hoses. all new brake pads and springs.

Top is in good shape and so are side curtains

Custom leather seat covers

Roll Bar

12. 39 miles on odometer since restoration

Lots and lots of spare parts as seen in the pictures 

I have shown in the pics the few spots of bubble rust. but overall the body is in great shape. and has always been stored indoors since the previous owner owned it.   The car drives and runs great and any serious buyers can test drive it since it has a valid NYS registration and inspection.   No reserve
