The neverending assault on our internal organs just keeps on coming this week. This Vancouver, BC ’72 Datsun 510 (see Craigslist ad here) has had one owner, a 77-year-old man who is now looking to pass his baby onto a younger caretaker. The mileage is high, at 129,000, but the owner claims it’s mint enough to sweep 44 First Place or Best in Show awards out of 44 shows entered, even beating out a Mercedes gullwing and E-Type Jag at some Concours event.
The only thing holding this blue Bluebird back is its slushbox, but the dictionary-sized stack of maintenance records from “day one” and turnkey condition must be worth something. And that something is $15,000 in the seller’s mind.
A bone stock 510 is a rare bird indeed. But is it 15 grand rare? What say you, readers?
