Found someone that has these 510's locally. He owns 4 of them. 1 of them is for sale. I also took pics of his drift car.
Here's the red one for sale. $2500 Canadian. Has front fiberglass fenders, 45mm weber carb. Needs floor work.Not bad for a 36 yr old Canadian car...

I love the 510's, they've always reminded me of a 2002's long lost asian cousin. That yellow one with the SR20DET looks awesome, so much room in that engine bay still... you could sleep in it!

So what Robb... you gonna stop bein such a nancy, and pick up the red one? It seems like a pretty decent price, but definantly a project car!

Looks good Rob...
Joe's a nice guy!
I saw that yellow one with the Sr20DET over 4 years ago...that was Pat's old motor.

Pat has a 2dr. yellow 510 with an SR20DET too, and it moves like no other. I think Pat's is under a 2000lb 510 pushing over 230-240hp from when he was over my place a couple of months ago.

These motors can do more, but then it may be tough to control (keep straight). Pat's car can do the wigglies for a long stretch...and keep up with some high end cars on the highway.:eek:
That car is such a blast to drive. He did all the work himself. *th-up*

From when I last spoke with Joe, he wanted to liven that motor up big time. Can't imagine what can be up his sleeve.*angel*

Jow told me today he's gonna keep the motor under 300hp... hehee

Nice Car, My Dad Had One Of These, A 240z, and a 1600sss. All nicely done up and performed great.

Funny how popular the 510's were...I here this a lot..."my dad owned one of those"....these were quite fun cars to have, especially the 1600SSS versions available everywhere else except North America.
My Dad still owns two and a half 1600SSS'...the half is a slightly mangled parts car.
BTW...still trying to convince my Dad to bring one of the 1600SSS' over the pond so he and I can enjoy it during the summer.
Heck, we have a mild L20B sitting in the garage right next to a fully rebuilt 1600 Datsun 510 motor....

Here are some pics of Pat's 510 at Z-Fest a couple of years ago.


And here is Pat's Cousins 510 (which I think is for sale)

I remeber getting my ass handed to me out in calgary by a primered 510 with a v8 in it at the local drag strip...

I went to see Pats cousins 510. It was in the autotrader in 2005. He lives near islington + finch if I remember correctly. Guy is a construction worker. The car is very fast.. but not worth what he was asking ($7000) Lotsa rust + bondo on it.

what do u think about a datsun 510 with a 13B in it? i saw one on speed strictly track car and it was walking by 500hp RX-7's on laguna seca.
