YEAAHHHH!!!  Coupe Coupe Coupe Coupe!!!!!!   After riding in Rich's and Carter's coupes and seeing them drive around I've wanted one.  Big thanks to Carter for helping make this happen in more ways than one!  Carter and I actually have been working with an importer for I think over a year, and would you guess he found this one local on Craigslist!!!!  It was posted Friday, I got a frantic text with a link to the add. Of coarse like any Craigslist shopper I didn't read the add I just called him.  Guess what, I was the first caller and he promised to let me look at it first thing on Saturday.  Like good Datsun shoppers Carter drove us down in his Coupe :)  The plans are to just drive it and just do little things.  It runs and drives fine, stumbles sometimes but I think that's due to bad gas and hopefully will go away with some driving.  Carter named it due to the color which is interesting. haha  Here are some pictures of it.  

 

It's an interesting coupe due to it not being a SSS, it's also an Auto!  haha.    It's defiantly had some bad rust repair in the rockers, fenders and quarters,  the funny thing to me is the floors are nice and rust free.  Or at least they seem that way.  It does have a 620 ignition which I don't like.  Small stuff can be changed as I drive it.

Check the build date. '71 had the fake wood grain console and was the first year with automatic. '70 and '71 had the Base (KP510AWT), Sport and SSS models and '71 had an optional L18SSS.  

 

Wow, just wow. Sooo nice.

I got Granny in November 2015 and it took us a year to find that car so we have been shopping in Japan for 2 years now...  Came so close a couple times too.  Heartbreakingly so.  Good things come to those who wait!

It appears to have the same "white line" grill as my late '69 SSS coupe.  It's not the cast grill on the early '69 coupe, it uses the same construction as most of the other 510 grills, but retains the large middle bar with the white paint.  Jeff's has a Coupe grill badge which I don't think I've seen in person before, just in a Japanese sales brochure.

 

So many cool things on this car make it different and fun.

 

Congratulations Jeff!

I actually was scrambling funds and was gonna contact him to snag this.. Then I re-checked the post about 20mins later—shit was deleted. I said to my bitch "jesus, that was effing quick"!

A lot of work there. But definitely worth it!

Congratulations! :thumbup:
