Just on the off chance there is someone on this list (or someone you know)
that might be interested, I would like to appeal to your restoration nature
for a moment.
Strictly speaking the subject is not about a 510 but I thought you all migh
let it slide since it is a predecessor.
Here the story, a gentleman here in Atlanta, GA has had a 1967 Datsun 411 Bluebird listed on CL for sale for a few weeks now. He has been the owner for a couple of months after purchasing it from someone who had it sitting outside their house for quite some time now. He felt compelled to buy it after a brief conversation with the original owner it was revealed the car was due to be ³crushed².
His intent was to bring it back to operating condition then either continue to restore it or to past along to the next enthusiast.
So why the appeal to you all? I was seriously considering it but since I only recently joined the long line of ³wishful thinkers² with my own 1970 510 2DR charity case. There is no way I could handle this too (or possibly ever).
I spoke with Roland (the current owner) over the phone and here are the facts about the car: 1967, 411 Bluebird, 4DR sedan All original 77,000 approx miles J13 4cyl engine w/4spd manual Complete car w/all original trim, (including hub caps), decals, interior, glass etc. Body is straight (no visible signs of an accident) Has been outside in the elements for who knows how long Has minimal rust in a couple typical areas for 41 year old Datsun It does not run (possible suggestion include carbon lock) Sorry, donıt have pictures Price is negotiable (Per Roland)
Iım reaching out because it would be nice if someone could bring this 411 back to life and not just part-it-out for a quick buck. But since Iım hardly qualify as an expert in restoration I will defer to th e vast knowledge of the list.
Let it be known, I have no connection with Roland other than once being an interested party and this is an emotional appeal to save the 411 in one piece.
Enough said, please pass along if you can, I have included Rolandıs contact info and the listing for the Ad.
I appreciate your time and hope this email was not too long. Regards, Ally 1970 510 2DR ³one day to be on the road²
