Russ Posted February 1, 2020 Report Share Posted February 1, 2020 Pics first, then the story. G’day I’m Russ from Victoria, Australia. I’ve been into Datsuns for years, and stalking the pages of Ratsun for probably the last 8. My previous projects have always been 510’s, this one I still have along with several others in various states of disrepair and a mountain of parts. A friend from work knew I was into Dattos, and mentioned that her father had 2 610’s in the shed that he’d been intending to restore for the last 20 years but was now resigned to the fact that he was never going to get to them. Stock 610’s had never really raised my heart rate, so a search of the internets was in order to see what could be done. This is the photo that had me hooked: Met up with her Dad the following weekend, and the deal was done. $600 AUD and the white ‘73 model was mine, an extra $300 got me this blue ‘73 as well. A few spares and a SSS grill thrown in for good measure. The plan is to tidy up the body, get a fresh coat of Fuji white on it and keep the vinyl roof. Low lows, neg front camber and some deep dish goodness to complete the look. A 5 speed swap is also on the cards. Hope you guys don’t mind if I ask for some advice along the way, no stupid questions I promise. I know you’re all pic whores, so I’ll take plenty. Cheers, Russ 5 Quote Link to comment
