My new 810 coupe.

Looks like a '79 hardtop with the small opera windows on the back. The '78s didn't have that.  Can't place those mags at all. Factory right? Where did you find it? Must have been garaged to survive SD winters.

 

Oh, and welcome to Ratsun. You have the first post in the 810/910 forum.

The guy i bought it from bought it new in 1979. He was 84 and said he just didn't drive it enough anymore. Great guy and it was very apparent he was sad to let it go.

Only the hardtops had the 5 speeds unless an option? Is it a 5 speed?

I did find it on craigslist and only 80 miles from my house. 2 hours later I was driving it home. It ran great. In fact the ac blows ice cold air and he said it has not been charged since he bought it new. I will ask about the rims the next time I talk to him.

Can't believe I missed this, welcome to ratsun and the 810 club I also own a 79 810 but mines a wagon. The 810 Coupe is something I'm after when I have the money I had a few slip threw, and weird were starting to see more and more 810 coupes and just 810's for that matter. Hope it doesn't need much because 820 coupes are the hardest to find parts for.

Mike the 79 Coupe came both in 5 speed manual & 3 speed automatic but autos were an option. We didn't get a 78 Coupe only coupes were made from 79-80, 80 being pretty rare year for any 810 especially a coupe only know one and know the person he lives in Texas.

Just bought this car from my old friend in Aberdeen maddogdriver going to go pick it up on Saturday and drive it to Fargo ND the car drives smooth and everything is super clean except the hail damage but that's all cosmetic bs that can be dealt with at an other time but a solid motor with only 60 some k original miles the guy never drove it really but a garage queen none the less super excited to go pick it up. First things first a good tune up with new wires plugs cap rotor timing check fuel filter and probably new rubbers I do have a set of rims on my s12 that are 4x114.3/4x100 and a rim size of14x8" with a zero offset does any one know if these will fit in the wheel well after I tighten up the suspension witch will most likley drop it about 2 to 2.5"

Welcome to Ratsun. As to the rims fitting, you have them, put one on and see. As long as they are inside the fender lip most tires will fit even if you lower it some later. Tightening up the suspension does not involve any lowering. Two different things.

 

Would love to see some pictures....

My 810 wagon has 14x7 0 offset they fit just fine, 14x8 should fit with the right tires. The sidewall on the tires would need to not stick out much.

The the tires are a 205 50 I have them currently on my 86 s12 coupe and they almost fit in the rear but stick out pretty good in the front But going to pick up the car on Saturday in Aberdeen sd hang out at the shop for a few days and drive it 220 ish miles home to Fargo ND on Monday morning so I'm kinda taking a leap of faith that it will make it home but as soon as I pull in the garage the wheels are coming off and the other ones are going on as well as a good tune up and oil change

We have one also.  It's a 1979 810 2 Door Coupe.  It's in excellent condition.  We had a mishap with the bumper today and are in need to repair (hopefully, not replace).

By the way, we own the 1979 Datsun 810 2 door coupe in Houston, Texas.  It is in excellent condition.
