New 510 Victoria

Post by Tay18 » 04 Jan 2019 09:16

Hi All,

After years of wanting and searching I finally got a 510. My dad has been around the local Datsun community as long as I can remember and had a 510 when I was young. He recommended I join the realm. You can find pictures of the project so far here: https://www.instagram.com/orange510project/

Flattops. Is that a U67 head?

Nice car. There's a few of us 510 people in Victoria.
Like herding cats to get us together.
Was the car complete?

Thanks all. My dad's was orange and I have always like the colour on 510's. We couldn't get the oem datsun colour mixed so that is the closest match.

The head is the stock one. I forget which one it was though and the engine is at my dads place right now.

The car wasn't complete. The motor I picked up locally and I have been collecting parts as needed. Still have a few thing to get.

Thanks. The Instagram was my girlfriends idea and it has been an excellent way to document and share the build.
