    79' 4 Door C210

    This car was a local car around my area of Alberton, South Australia for all it's life. A gentleman bought it in 1979 from Dave Boyd Datsun at 969 Port road Cheltenham, this gentleman was a chemist. Well eventually he sold to a car dealership, the second owner bought it he had it for 6/7 years. I used to see it parked down a side street and would drool every time I saw it. It's pretty much 1km from where it was sold originally, the 2nd owner was happy to sell it to me.

    It's an Australian market car with the larger L24S.
    3 speed auto.
    Stock as a rock.

    It had a huge dent from the previous owner (not his fault). This is when I got her.







    Engine bay.




    How it looks now.





    It will be a slow restoration.

    Nice car mate. I just started a thread for my C210 sedan!

    Glad to see you got surface rust in the engine bay same as mine, although mine seems worse.

    I noticed yours doesnt have power steering. It goes right where the mech fuel pump is. Seeing photos of your engine bay has help me make sense of mine.

    If you're looking for stuff in yahoo japan use these search strings, they're a godsend for finding c210 stuff.

    this is a broader search ????
    and this is more accurate ??????????

    they are know as "skyline japan "


    Cant wait to see what you do with this awesome car, and for the record triple carbs every time :twisted:

    I've done my research on these cars, my car got rust proofed back in the day, so its not as far gone as some others. yeah no power steering Its only bad at slow speeds. I surf Import Monster for parts too.

    I found this gem too.
    http://topic.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/car/m ... /20100728/

    First link is Cars, second is all parts, third is original parts thats the same for C10, C110, C210, S30, S130. I surf them all as some parts are interchangable and sometimes you get parts like tripple carbs and engine parts.

    I'm still tossing up between an L28 on carbs or L28E. All the best with yours the C210 has become my fave Skyline.

    Ill grab a photo of the fuel cap etc tomorrow.

    I'm going to buy a new cap with keys as the rubber seal on my has disintegrated sadly. A new one will be needed. The filler cover sits flush though.

    Did see a new cover section on YJ today but I think the bit surround the cover was silver

    You going to put fender mirrors on?

    I noticed that your external door trims are higher than mine, and you have two mirrors on your doors!!! I have one little crappy one on the drivers door only :roll:
