1971 510 2 door project for sale.

Recommended Posts

I'm posting this for a good friend who lives locally.  I will vouch for everything on this car personally.  It is setup to be either an aggressive street car or a vintage race sedan. Anything in () is my comments, the rest is from the seller. Car is located in Oceanside, CA.


"Up for sale is my '71 51- that I've been working on for three years as time and money permitted. Unfortunately my interests have changed so I'm putting my dream project up for sale.


The shell is straight and rust free. Any rust shown in the pictures is surface rust and will clean up easily. The roll cage was professionally installed and welded as shown. ( All it lacks to be vintage race legal is door bars.)


I've squared away many parts over the years and have been lucky enough to buy a complete race built suspension from Les Cannaday at Classic Datsun Motorsports. The front coilovers are complete but I've only shown the major components. (The suspension parts/modifications are from Design Products. We use their suspensions on all of our race 510's.) The engine is an L20b bored .036 over to run 240z flat top pistons. It has a peanut chamber A87 head with professional port work, comp springs, and a Racer Brown cam.  All timing components are new.  Bottom end is stock with new bearings, and balanced.  The engine was built by Monte at Machine Tech in Oceanside, CA.  (Monte builds most of our race engines.  This is a great performance street engine.)  The valve cover was powder coated and cleaned properly.  The Mikuni intake has been professionally port matched to the head and carbs. Carburetors are freshly rebuilt 44mm Mikunis. I do not have a linkage.  The distributor is stock with a pertronix electronic ignition and a performance advance plate.  I have the water pump and mechanical fuel pump.  I also have a 200sx 5 speed overdrive transmission.  Rear differential is stock 510.  


I prefer to sell as a complete package for $7000 OBO. The car is ready for paint and reassembly. If it does not sell I may consider parting it out but it would be pick up only.  The car is licensed, registration is current and non-opted. Pink slip and title in hand."








The only dent in the car.


















This is a super straight car. I build 510's for a living and can tell you that you will be hard pressed to find a better shell anywhere.  His suspension is legit and everything is powder coated or re-zinced.  My friend has owned 510s in the past and was definitely putting this one together right.  If you're interested let me know and I'll send you his phone #.
