    My 1975 Datsun Cherry

    This Saturday, I will be picking up a 1975 Datsun Cherry, imported from England (I think), the steering wheel is on the opposite side of the car, so stoked. I believe in the US they were marketed as the F10?

    This will be my first Japanese car of any kind, and I'm very excited. From what I understand, it's kind of rare. Anyways, I'm going to post some pictures of it and I'm hoping to rack up some interest in it from the community here. Hopefully you guys can help me with some history, interesting facts, tips and hints for restoration, I have no idea what kind of features are on the Dat either so if you can point out some cool stuff, that'd be awesome.

    Also, I want to build up a list of people that have parts/experience with this car, because I'll be needing some help. The guy I'm buying it from also is including A TON of Datsun parts, so I'll have some goodies.

    I plan on doing a full resto, and then probably selling it a few months later if I don't fall in love, so if you're interested in buying it from me, let me know as well.

    The fender mishap happened while it was in storage. Not looking forward to fixing that up. You mentioned it was first generation Cherry, would that make it an E10? I'm having a lot of trouble finding parts for it because it goes by a thousand names and it sure is confusing!
    Would anybody be able to compile a list of Datsun/Nissan models that would have interchangeable parts with my Cherry?

    I remember this car on eBay last year (sans damage). Very cool.

    There really aren't any. If you list specific parts you need, there may be some crossover, but no chance of a "master list". This is a very rare car with little to no following. Owning a car like this makes you a bit of a pioneer. :wink:

    these come up for sale every now and then over here, one for sale now:

    as far as i know parts are still available.

    why do you want to restore a rhd car and then sell it on? i dont think you will make any money on it since you are located in a lhd country.

    pretty cool cars though.
