Re: BaT sells another Datsun 510 - $46k US

going out on a limb here but its kinda incomplete isnt it> apparently im in the wrong as it takes at least TWO to bid it that high but congrats to the seller- he won the lottery- no front sway bar and stock oilpan , no airfilter - and a whopping 215s for tires with ebay flares-- and sells for $46k ...

BaT sells another Datsun 510 - $46k US

A lot of interest in this one...

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1971-datsun-510-38/

Landed with taxes in Canadian $ you'd be well over $70,000.

Re: Blue '71 Project

Interesting... it looks more like 563 to my eye and according to this paint chart... https://www.uniquecarsandparts.com.au/colour_swatch_datsun_1968 But I know computer screens don't render colors the same so hard to judge and seeing as you are painting it, I'm sure you've got the correct paint code...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

I picked up my wiring diagram today and can see that you MUST have the 4 ways working first, as THEY supply power to the turn signal flasher, so that is good, mine works just fine. Keith - did you replace both your 4 way flasher and your turn signal flasher or just the turn signal flasher? I see tw...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

I had a friend punch out a couple of steel circles to use as vent covers. The oil cooler does not need the air flow in colder weather and the tin foil one that came with the car looked like crap. Primed and painted them and securing them to the screen with high strength magnets. I think it looks way...

Re: WTB: 68-69 510 Exterior Lights

Found some rear lights! They cleaned up very nicely. Not shown with the rubber seals, but have those as well and they are in pretty good shape.

Need to see if I can find LED bulbs for these.

Re: Gold digger

Just read your whole build thread. Quite the project and has me thinking about my own plans. I had to smile when I read about your oil filter placement... I have just completed my first oil change and even with the filter installed vertically, it's hard to avoid making a bit of a mess. To top it off...

Re: WTT: 69 510 Rear Bumper for 70-73 Rear Bumper

I was on the datsport site last night getting ready to place a rubber order. And noticed they have Nissan nos fender marker lights. Not the Canadian bayonet but the arrow style. $70 AUS. Futofab has told me he has the same ones and I'm trying to confirm fenders, rear bumper and front valance from h...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Removed the front air dam / spoiler. I prefer the look without it... I'm sure the air vents to the front rotors were probably helping with cooling for track days, but that look just isn't for me. What do you think? I might post it in Classifieds if it works for someone else. New Bumper small.jpg 510...

Yes, will likely end up with the aftermarket ones... Futofab has them for $25US a pair...

WTB: 68-69 510 Exterior Lights

Don't laugh... really would like to pick up the following exterior lights - front and rear side marker lights (lenses and backing) and rear bumper license plate light. I'm starting to formulate a vision for my 510. My original 510 (cough, 30 years ago...) was a 1969 and I loved both the unique dash ...

Re: WTT: 69 510 Rear Bumper for 70-73 Rear Bumper

The light might have came on some early 69s. You will have some trouble and expense to find that light. I'd guess $250 for new. I've restored a few. The lenses are on eBay but by the time you buy that and rechrome the cover. Your almost $150 deep. If you can find a decent core. I suspect the gap be...

Re: WTT: 69 510 Rear Bumper for 70-73 Rear Bumper

Interesting... could definitely be that it was 68... Futofab shows the bumper with the hole as 68-69 and the one without as 70-73.

I had not thought about just installing the bumper light... I wonder if I can source one. I'll look around.

WTT: 69 510 Rear Bumper for 70-73 Rear Bumper

Ok, throwing this out there in the hopes that someone might want to trade... Alternative for me is buying a new one and selling this one. The 69 rear bumper has a hole for the bumper mounted rear license plate light. My 510 is a 72, so would prefer not to have the hole there. My bumper is in great s...
