Wish I had 1000 sitting around

Post by heirfaus » 27 Dec 2005 18:01

Man I wish I had a cool 1000 US just kickin' around, I would have just bought my next 510. What a great starting point for 1K: L20b, 5speed, pretty straight, different seats, different wheels, weber, header, all glass seems good, chrome looks good too(from what you can tell)....seems like a steal and only a half days drive.

Ok maybe I'm on crack but a Datsun 1000 is a Sunny. It was a tny version of the 510....ish. I grew up with one. All 3 of my sisters learned how to drive on it, as did I. I was 14. Anyway I have yet to find any pics of one. I have only ever seen one customized. Any pics on this lost classic, please indulge.

Foamy, there's a fellow who posted to this site this year, local guy, bought himself a really nice re done 1000. If you check some of the old posts and messages, he's posted some nice pictures of the car here.

Say Jeff, isn't that the one you beat Skip too? He was all teary eyed at that one! Your Datsun 1000 is a real original, the one's these guys are talking about are the 1971 models I think.
