After some time away from here, I took a little time to finally present my machine.

It's a 4 door B110 Sedan from 1971. I bought a little more than 1 year ago and has suffered some changes. Here's some images of how it looks now, followed by it's entire history since I got it:

Btw... Those wheels are gone... I'm now awaiting for the tires to arrive, and mount these ones... Hayashi Street 13x6!

And now, here's a little resumé from it's history since I first got it in the 8th December, 2013!

Many criticise it, look it as "not stock", and think about the 1000 things they would do to him, if it belong to them, but I don't matter... The only thing I've always looked for was the emotion, pleasure and my personal taste!

It really could be "one more" 4-door Sedan, but for me it's "THE" Datsun! I bought it, kept it the best I could and improve it the best I could! I'm full-time student, and never had any financial support for my project, It was ALL been made with my effort and money, but the reward couldn't be better!

These are some of the changes I've been made to it, throught the time I first got it to the present.

First day:

Changing up for some 13"'s I had laying arround:

Head problems, and a lot of internal corrosion:

Rebuilt and worked head, new water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, temperature sensor, rear seat (the other had a some little scratches), fluids, filters and some more little things to spice it up.

Since mine it's not a "Deluxe", originally it didn't came with Stereo. Since it had a ugly ass stereo that didn't fit the hole, I took it out, got a original plate, and put a new stereo hiden.

Completly restaured carburetor, cleaned and internals changed:

Just arrived from Japan! Imported Hayashi Street 13x6"

Totally restaured Wheels:

I still have a long journey of things I would like to change and improve... If something classics taught me was, "Quick and good, no one does it" (It's a Portuguese traditional quote)... I still have a lot of time in front of me... With some time, dedication everything will go to it's place!

Very good, what I like best is all factory Datsun parts except the wheels & tires. Well done!

I had a leaky fuel pump, with lead to enormous consumption! Today I grabbed an ORIGINAL Kyosan Denki Fuel Pump too... Looks great! (Here's the references if someone needs them!)

Thanks everyone for the comments! Yeah, I like to keep it simple! Keeping the original looks, but with some unique features, that's my goal!

These have been some awesome days! SO much news, it's almost everything ready!

The new head lamps are already here, I got some H4 +30% head lights, because the old ones (sealed) weren't working, now it's ready for inspection!

Love the Hiyashi Street rims.

By the way, Deluxe 1200s did not come with radio by default -- in Japan it was an extra-cost option. See Body Styles DX section.
