Datsunreal: yeah still got the old girl. I gave the carby a clean out (full of sand and grit) and used a lawn mower fuel drum as a fuel tank and had the old girl purring along. I was going to try and have it going for a motokhana but all the brakes were stuffed.
Tom210: depends on if I can stop the wife spending money and how much time I can get in the shed. I also need to get a bit of panel work done. so I wouldnt have a clue how long.
I would love to leave the 15" rims on the car in the top photo but they stick out to far. (40mm at front and 20 at the rear) Plus the rims are for sale.

That is the coupe version most of those were fitted with the A12 and not the A10 like mine. They were also known as the 120A Cherry. I know of only two in Oz. One damaged one in Queensland and a straight and original one some where in Melbourne. Greeny is the 2 door sedan they also made the 4 door sedan and a 2 door wagon(estate).

Came with a few bits in the boot. spare front struts with disc brakes. tail light, Globes, clutch cables X2, nuts bolts, Most of the service history, pair of binoculars, gas struts for the rear hatch, 1977 Melway book, oil drum, water bottle, jumper leads, spare contacts, spare radiator caps(4), almost brand new tape deck with built in equilizer, etc.
I have already started to play with it.
this was the car I knew of in Melbourne but didnt know exactly where it was. I know now though its in MY SHED!
Slowly but surely I am cornering the Datsun Cherry Market. (4 out of 8 in the country).

Its an addiction its called Datsunitis or Cherry Fever.
I may have one more surprise to come yet.
I need to fix a few little things on the car first. Horn doesnt work running abit rough. Body isnt as good as it looks in the photo's either. fe rust bubbles and some dodgy repairs made. but other than that a sound car.
I will be putting SI rego on it when i do get it registered.
