Calling out to all the 510 fans out there! Our family have owned Datsun 510 sedans & wagons for over 40 years, and we're finally looking to lighten up our load.

We're selling our classic 1979 Datsun station wagon with 5 spd transmission // a spare great-running engine & 5 speed transmission // and a ton of engine parts for the legendary L20B engine.

The Datsun station wagon
- Mechanics - Aesthetically a little rough on the edges, but mechanically great with consistent oil changes & tune-ups:
--- Mileage 217,987 (engine was rebuilt by previous owner down in Oregon at around 180,000 miles)
--- Replaced entire exhaust system in 2019
--- New battery in 2019

- Body - Datsun is completely straight with a some surface rust.
--- The right rear door has rusted through in a few spots (common for these 510s).

- Interior - A bit rough and definitely shows its age, but functional.
--- Ignition was damaged in an attempted theft, so we currently have it wired to not need one -- but we have two spare ignition/locks with keys.

Extra Engine & Transmission
- Came out of a '79 Datsun wagon we wrecked a few years back - Pulled the engine & trans as it was such a strong runner.

Additional Parts
- Full set of chrome rims with newer tires (under 4,000 miles -- currently have winter tires on the car)
- 1 full L20B head
- 7 coils
- 1 brake master cylinder
- 2 starters
- 1 differential (geared for a 5spd transmission)
- 4 fuel pumps
- 1 distributor
- 2 full ignitions with keys
- new timing gear kit
- 4 windshield wiper motors
- 3 alternators
- brake pads (new - front/rear)
- fan belts
- head light clusters
- rear brakelights
- manuals
- radiator
- lots of small parts

Perfect for 510 gear heads looking for additional parts to keep their 510's on the road / racetrack, or the opportunity to restore the station wagon (which would be an amazing dropped track car or resto-mod).

Hi, super interested in the L20b, and other parts. do you know mileage on the L20? And what 5spd transmission is it?

This is an FS5W63A with reverse gear above first. Hence the name dogleg. It was only used on the '77-'79 S10 200sx and was optional on the A10 for '78-'79.
