attachicon.gif910 front.jpg

This 910 just appeared on the Datsun Club UK Facebook page. It may do me as a stop gap measure till I get the Mark 3 Toyota Crown I really want. It's in Cornwall which is not ideal for popping down to look at it, the guy is looking for £1400 which I have but don't know if that is an ok price or not, I guess as long I can shift it on later without losing any money it does not really matter.

 

It has MOT till 12-06-2018, appears to be a bit crusty, has horrible wheels and wont be available till 21-11-2017. One to ponder me thinks.

You can certainly do better than that.. My Bluey estate can be had for less, has no rust & low miles, plus was 1 owner till 18 months ago & had a new clutch a couple of months back (which is an arse of a job).

 

Yes, its FWD instead of rear, but that means its better in snow & wet!  :mrgreen:

Is it actually for sale or just open to offers? What engine is it? I could be tempted as an interim car while I work on getting what I really want. Dollywobbler didn't seem that impressed with his Bluey though and I feel we have fairly similar tastes in cars.

Its a 2.0 manual & is semi-up for sale for £1295, but I`m still improving it by repairing the OSR door & arch which were damaged, and once thats done I was going to change the belts & service it, then up the price to £1495 to reflect its then minty condition..

Someone did contact me a couple of days ago who had one, sold it, regretted it & wants mine now, but he`s supposed to be trying to arrange how to get to mine (N London) from Ipswich, I`ve no idea if/when that`ll happen.

Le door currently:

The Proton is a lot more fun to drive, but a Bluey feels somewhat more robust. Main thing that bothered me about my latest one was the lack of oomph. I've managed to correct that though. All it took was a 260bhp V8.

Mine doesnt have a lack of oomph, I`m quite impressed with with its combination of power AND economy, was quite happy cruising 3 up on the motorway at a ton (people actually fell asleep!).

That'll be the difference between 1.6 and 2.0 then! My previous Bluey certainly didn't hang about. Nice motor.

Oh blimey, that was your issue then! No such problems with the 2.0!

Ok well file me under potentially interested, I'm not wanting to be a time waster though. If I were to buy it I would prefer it after the belts have been changed for maximum peace of mind so if it gets to that point and it's still for sale I will consider it then.

Just to let you know, someone called earlier & seems very interested, he always wanted a Bluebird estate (had a K10 Micra for years apparently). He`s only about 15 miles away & wants to see it over the weekend.

I did paint the door, but the colour match is way off (gutted), so I was going to do it again, I have told the bloke, but he's still interested as it is.

I haven't changed the timing belt yet, & funnily enough I ordered a water pump this morning as I thought "while I'm down there", plus I got a new thermostat a few months ago (not that it needs it, but I wanted to change it & the antifreeze anyway), so can do that while the coolants drained.

Anyway, long & the short of it is, someone seems very interested, & in the spirit of the Autoshite brotherhood, I thought I`d let you know!

One door in the wrong silver (the 5-wheel silver I used to seal it till I could work on it was a better match :-( ):

No worries thanks for the update, sounds like it would be better off going to your potential buyer that really wants it rather than I who was just considering it a stop gap measure. GLWS!

My hunt continues but I still have a good few months to find the car I desire.

I also loved the bumper stickers ("y'all need some Jesus") and a period accessory that was mounted on the driver's door. As far as I could tell it was a sort of spirit level to see how low your back end was when you were haulin' your airstream.
