A 1975 Datsun 120Y 3spd stick, FREE of charge. His mate said he was going to get it taken away from his house 'cause it was taking up space, so dad happily took it. Then we find out that NO 2 doors were brought to Australia, and this one is a 2 door. So dad is lovin' life at the moment. He's going to redo the whole interior in it's original state (He's a re-upholsterer), get it resprayed in the original red, and fix anything else that needs to be done (Internally an externally). Apparently a decent condition 2 door, in Aus, will go for close to 10-12k; let's see how it unfolds :bigthumbu

here's a pic. This is NOT his, but an identical version (Same colour, year etcc...)

Nice! My dad used to have one exactly like that, although his was a piece of crap, I always thought it would be a cool project car.

Ive seen them with v8's and turbo'd. Great little rwd car and i would own one if i could find one. These make awesome sleepers or if your into custom muscle cars i would drop that on 17 or 18s if they fit.

Correction...4spd Manual. He has gutted the interior at the moment, all seats/roof lining is out; ready for a much needed fix :hehe:

doesnt even cover it. was a common sight to see these things on the side of the road bonnet up. in original fair they are real shit.. badly made, economic.. slow as a wet week, tiny as hell on the inside.. but, alas, as stated, very receptive to mods. its like the gemini. both in original form are crap, but dont try to race one, cause there arent many stockers around now.. almost all are V8 or turbos or whatever, and due to a VERY low weight, actually turn out quick. first mod before anything big would have to be a rollcage.. not a real safe car.
