    Wow, that's crazy! They both looked ok when I replaced the bushings a couple years ago. Glad you caught it before it became a bigger problem.

    Is it frozen? Both doors have old seals and let water in. Not sure if you're keeping it inside or out, but if it's been snowed on it might just be frozen. I know I never had a problem with it unlocking, and I'm pretty sure the day you test-drove it I unlocked it with the key and it was ok. Let me know if you get it open.

    I was able to do 70-75, but the engine was working hard. You might want to rebuild the carb? There should be a carb rebuild kit in the trunk if you want to give it a try. It's another thing I was thinking about doing, but never got around to.

    I wish I checked the forums earlier...I figured you either found ratsun already, or you would at some point. Enjoy the car! I had a blast with it for a few years, but with 2 small kids I was just letting it go to waste. If you get sick of it, let me know. Maybe I'll be ready to buy it back in a few years. :)

    Sold! The kid who bought it seems like he's into Datsuns so hopefully he does right by it.

    Price drop to $1800. Trying to move it before I have to put it in storage for the winter. Anyone?

    Yeah, it's an auto trans. I have a 4 speed from a 200sx that might swap in, but it needs other parts + someone more talented than me to put it in.

    Not yet. Right now my mother is driving it, so I haven't been in a rush to sell it. There's a ratsun member in Maine who says he wants it and he'll be down to get it one of these days. Haven't heard from him in a couple weeks, though. Are you interested?

    Sure, that would be great. The updated ad is here: http://boston.craigslist.org/nwb/cto/2634039339.html If it doesn't sell this time, I'll cover it up for the winter and try again in the spring.

    Thanks! I'm kind of hoping no one wants it...
  11. It's a sad day, but I think it's time to move on. Selling my 710 hardtop. [edit: updated link and new price] http://nh.craigslist.org/cto/3413555092.html 1974 Datsun 710 Hardtop. The car runs great and starts like a new car. The interior is in amazing original condition with no cracks on the dash or anything like that. The only issue is the stitching separating the headrest from the rest of the seat has come loose, but it's not noticeable unless you're looking for it. It has some rust issues on the body, but it's almost all surface rust except for the trunk lid. It needs a new trunk lid, but I have a replacement from Texas that just needs to be installed. The 3-speed automatic shifts smooth and works like it should. It has some period correct Datsun mesh rims with new tires. Things that are good: Replaced driver side frame rail. New hoses & vacuum hoses. New plugs and wires. New shocks & struts, and new suspension bushings. New brakes (discs, calipers, pads/drums, cylinders, shoes) and new master cylinder. New lines in a lot of places. New fuel lines and filter. New battery. All new fluids (engine oil, coolant, brake fluid, transmission, rear diff) Old/new-to-me Datsun mesh 13" wheels and new tires. Things that don't work: Radio Clock Weatherstripping needs to be replaced. Stuff I have that is included: original steel wheels & hubcaps new points, rotor and distributor cap replacement trunk that I had shipped from TX other misc parts Reasonable offers considered. Let me know if you're interested. Thanks, Todd
  12. This car is awesome...wish I could drive out to Rochester to pick it up: 1980 Datsun 310 GX - $2000 Looks like it's in great shape, and you don't see too many of these around the northeast.

    He said it's a '76. Hopefully the parts are interchangeable.

    Thanks for the tip! Just sent him payment for the trunk lid.
  15. Yeah, I don't know what happened...maybe I need to start taking my car seriously? If I thought I could get $7500 or more for it, I would do a serious restoration instead of all the crappy spray can touch-ups I give it. I like that 210 a lot, but it's an automatic. If it was a stick it would be mine already! This pickup should make you feel more at home... $750 for a '71 truck: 1971 Datsun Model 1600 P.U. - $750
