'72 1200 coupe

Recommended Posts

I felt the front of my 1200 needed a change so this is what I did. I have a rabbit front duckbill that came in the mail yesterday just waiting to get put on. I'm still deciding i I want the bumper on or off.

Looks good. Nice build. Get the cragers back on it, put some spacers on and drop it 4 inches.

That looks really good in the add, he reduced the flare in the rear and dropped the hell out of it. It looks like a small copy of the frankenstein 280z kind of

 

I think it's one of the very coolest looking 1200's I've ever seen

HEY!

 

I'm not a quitter I just figure I have had enough fun with this car and I want to get the car I am really after. I would have more than one car but I still live at home and my mother does not approve of more than one car.

 

My dream car is an Opel Manta and that is what I am after now. I love this little 1200 and I have to say it is hard to sell it but I have had 2 Opel GTs that both were wrecked by my sister and I have to say that Opels is where my heart lies. I am glad I have had the experience of restoring this Datsun and it has taught me a lot. I appreciate all the help I got from you guys here.

 

Now someone hurry up and buy it!

I'm surprised it's not sold yet. Any interest?

 

BTW, your sister needs to stay away from your cars <_< .

Sounds like your sister owes you her parking space. Keep the 1200 and park it where her car goes.

Mantas are cool ,just hard to get parts.

 

I was in to Capris myself but parts are hard to come by even dough they made as many as jeep Cherokees.

 

I think the 1200 is cool. but part sources are still better.

 

Give me your sisters phone number

The car sold today for 23 cold hard American Benjamins. I'm sad to see it go but I'm glad it is.

 

 

BTW I don't need another GT (that's the model your talking about) my dad already has one I'm going to be helping him work on.

 

see you Datsun freaks in another life! Maybe I will be back some day.

I think this is the first time I have seen a member say he is leaving, and not angry either.

 

Bye!

 

Did you happen to refer the new owner to Ratsun?

I actually didn't. He is kind of a tool in my opinion which is weird being that he is from Canada. He kept calling me bro...

 

anyway here are the photos.
