Touching story about a '77 B210 that originally made its home in San Diego, wound up in New York, then Vermont, then back to the West coast, now living in San Francisco.
Amazingly, after all that time back East in salt-the-roads territory, it still has intact floors, rocker panels and quarter panels.
The warmed-over A14 is still under the hood, but the dual side draught Webers have gone AWOL.
The look with the Euro bumpers is much more graceful that the OEM U.S. spec Armco barrier-style bumpers it was born with.

For sale is a classic Datsun in great condition. The car runs exceptionally well and is quite fun to drive. The car will not pass smog however, all the emission equipment has been removed. That being said it only has 100,900 miles on it and no rust on the frame. I recently drove this car 4,500 miles on cross country trip, and have gone up and down from LA to the bay numerous times in the last few months. It is currently registered in Vermont, before selling I plan to register Planned Non-Operation on account of the smog issues. So I think this car is best for somebody who has the means to register it in a different state. This car was featured in a Hemmings article a few years back ( https://www.hemmings.com/magazine/hsx/ ... -Datsun-B210/1643070.html ). This is such a cool car I have loved owning it. I am selling it because I need to buy a pickup and cannot afford to have both cars.

Glove box autographed by John Morton! or maybe his secretary...who is he, you may ask? he is a badass racing driver for team Datsun in the early 70's
high compression A14 engine (requires premium gas, non-ethanol if you can find it)
5 speed 210 engine (valued between $800 and $1000 on ebay). Shifts beautifully and easily
European Bumpers (desirable, so I am told, valued at $600 alone)
drivers seat replaced with one from a Suzuki Swift GTi
vacuum assist brake booster removed to make more room for a dual weber carb and intake
brakes work very well
recently replaced the whole charging system, master cylinder, rear wheel cylinders, ignition control module.
Parts are surprisingly not that hard to find
original paint and comes with a can of touch up paint. 'Mediterranean Blue'
also I have replacement headlights, a set of snow tires, the manual, a datsun hat, a book about 1970's team Datsun SCCA racing which will be yours. I also have an extra bumper and rear windshield but they are in Vermont, you'd be welcome to them but they are far away

As you can see in the pictures there is so much room to maneuver under the hood, its really easy to do your own maintenance. Also I hear of folks taking these cars and putting 6 or 8 cylinder engines in them.

right now it gets around 35 mpg, but with some effort that could probably rise up to 45 or 50. This car used to be owned by a datsun master mechanic and was raced in hypermileage races. It won a few in 08/09 averaging around 75mpg(!)

the negatives:
* wont pass smog
* carburetor hesitates slightly going into first. My mechanic recommended rebuilding it, but as it is now the car is running very well and once the engine is warm its not noticeable. Car occasionally diesels upon shut off
* oil pan gasket has very small leak. eventually should be replaced but not an issue if you change the oil every 3000 miles
* rear engine seal has small leak, not significant enough to warrant removing the transmission but if you ever did remove that you could replace that while you are in there
* needs a brake hose replaced (not urgent)

there it is! contact me by email or phone if you have any more questions about the car. I am in contact with the previous owners and I have a record of all the work done in the past 5 years, and recently took it to the mechanic and have a copy of all his estimates. $3000, or best offer

I thought I recognized the car; for that price it's almost worth buying for the motor.

Yes that's the BlownB310 car (Mike Kamm) and it had a 1608cc A-series engine. With that engine, the 5-speed, the bumpers and the history, $3000 seems like a fair price

He achieved 75 mph in the economy run in 2011
