    1200 Buyers Guide

    After negotiating a fair price, I purchased and collected the 1200 this weekend. Thank you again for the above info and advice. When I start a build thread, I'll update this post with the link. Lachlan

    Thanks for the detailed replies! I printed this out and referred to it during the inspection. It's an automatic. Rust was minimal from what we could get to. Front seats were not original, but the rest of the car was. Engine turned over but did not start. I've made a fair offer and will update here if it is accepted. Otherwise, thanks again. Lachlan

    1200 Buyers Guide

    Hi, I'm new here. This forum was recommended by a friend (1600 owner) as a great source of Datsun info. I'm inspecting a 1972 Datsun 1200 4-door sedan tomorrow and was wondering what to look for. I don't have many details on the car at the moment (e.g. transmission, condition), but I understand it was owned by the seller's elderly mother and has been stored in a farm shed since she passed away. The registration expired in 2013. I know rust can be an issue for these cars. Are particular areas more prone than others? What other issues would you keep an eye out for? I'm reading what I can find on Google, but I know the best info comes from the owners themselves. Can you help? Thanks, Lachlan PS I searched the archives and couldn't find anything on this topic.
