    Just bought a '81 Datsun 210

    I haven't got it home yet but just picked up this 1981 Datsun 210







    Needs a stater but I got it cheap and the body is really solid. Interior is decent - that door panel is in the back seat. Apparently has a new clutch too. Not sure on the exact plans yet except initially start by getting is roadworthy.

    Cool.
    I'd love to have a 2-door sedan 210/B310.
    Never seen one over here!

    Good news, bad news.

    The seller told me it had a new clutch - I discovered it needed a new clutch - big difference! I got the starter going and engine running but it was not drivable. Getting towed home. Tow cost me $60 and car cost me $150 so I'm ironically $210 into it.



    Took a few shots waiting for the tow truck

    Dusty interior



    Mighty A-series four cylinder engine in 1981 Datsun 210. Looks to be a 1.2L so the smallest version - bummer. The engine is derived from the old BMC A-series (think MG Midget, Morris Minor, Mini, etc). Needs a good clean but oil is clean.

    Got it home.

    cleaned the inside



    Cleaned out the trunk Ė pretty much rust free with just a hint of surface rust in the spare wheel well.



    The rear seat was loose so I thought what the heck Iíll clean it up a bit. Years of dirt.

    A few minor things done on my newly acquired Datsun 210.

    Did a quick initial clean on the engine way. Quite a difference already.



    Driverís door panel back on, I just need to figure out the proper way to get the winder clip back on.



    Silly door buzzer had its sensor disconnected Ė must have loosened at some point. So it dinged all the time. Was driving me crazy. Had to remove the glove box to get at it. I fixed it then thought what the hell am I doing and disconnected the whole thing. No more bell ever!

    Nice score. Funny how those cars clean up really nice. $150 bux!!! That's an awesome deal. Projects usually have the responsibility of throwing money into it though so that's to be expected. Awesome find and great job of cleaning it up so far.

    I foresee rims that are 10 times more expensive than the cost of the car.

    Very clean and a 2-door, what more could you want? 8) What you got planned for it?

    Seeing this thread reminds me that I have to get a camera and take some shots of my 210.
