We bought this little car 3 years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it.  The car has been very reliable and was even been a daily driver for a while however, since we don’t drive it often we feel that it is time to let someone else enjoy it now.  It has 85,000 original miles.  Tires are pretty much new having just  under 10,000 miles on them.  Completely went through the braking system and it is all new (including the master cylinder and brake booster). Upgraded the points to electronic ignition.   Has R134 A/C and it works (definitely not new car AC but it does work).  Interior is in good shape and clean (the driver and passenger seat were recovered before we bought it).

We have taken it to car shows and it was a show winner at last year’s MultiState Datsun show in Williams, AZ.  Car was driven to the show from our home, almost 400 miles round trip.  Running and driving Datsuns are becoming harder and harder to find and this B210 is ready to drive and have a ton of fun in.  Be prepared for lots of thumbs up and stories about how they used to have one.  We experienced both of these almost every time we drive the car. With any car of its age it is showing a little wear, the original paint is thin, the radio is working but not loud, the gauges are intermittent, the left turn signal does not work (the right does so go figure).  The dog leg 5 speed takes some getting used to.  All that being said it is an awesome little car that has never let us down in the 10,000 miles of ownership. The car is roadworthy and can be driven home.

Comes with spare parts….. all new steering components, rear turn signals, factory B210 manual and a few other misc items.

Datsun B210 / Datsun Sunny / Datsun 120Y – A little history and information:

The Datsun B-210 continued to be the fuel-economy leader in North America and it was one of the least expensive cars available. This was in part due to the light metal; small A13 or A14 engine with OHV technology and a very basic vinyl interior used in its construction. Introduced for 1974 with a 1.3-litre four, this was replaced by a larger and more powerful 1.4-litre version for 1975.This engine remained in use, continuing to be installed in the next generation B210. At the time, their body styles were popular with buyers – mainly the hatchback coupé as the sedans were considered by some to be less appealing. Datsun dealers were instructed to describe the coupé as having “the image of a Mini-Z-Car”. The 1978

Road & Track  in their 1975 test[.  They found “modest performance” of the “peppy” engine, but were impressed with its 27 mpg-US fuel economy. B210 pricing started at $2849 that year.

1975–1978: A14 engine, 1.4 L (1397 cc) OHV I4. Power in 1975 was 70 or 68 hp (52 or 51 kW) (SAE Net) in 49-state versus California trim –
