Description Datsun 1200 Ute

As the title says;

1979 Datsun 1200 ute, manual.

Owned by my father whom is in his late 60's for the last 12 ish years. The car has been in storage for the last 6 years not driven much and has had its rego lapse during this time. My dad got a boat and needed a car to tow it so he got a bigger ute and stopped paying dato rego.

Overall the car is in really good condition for its age. 

The interior is clean, has original radio, dash in great shape. There is some scuffs here and there and it's not perfect but it's in great shape.

The clock works, as does the speedo, dash, head, tail, reverse, number plate, park brake and interior lights, cigarette lighter, handbrake, seat belts etc.

The odometer is showing 20707km the odometer only counts to 99999km so I would say it would have been around once or twice although I don't believe this car has done too many k's.

Things to know;

Centre console gearshift area has a crack in a trim surround, and the gear shift leather cover is in need of rejuvenating.  However the gear shift itself has had new bushings at some stage and is remarkable.

The drivers side seat has 15cm split in the stitching otherwise not too bad.

The passenger side 1/4 window release handle is broken and the window sealed closed

The Body- 

Overall the body is in good straight condition, the paint looks fairly good.

There is some scratches here and there and some surface rust starting in a couple of places. 

There are some more serious rust spots which need attention, although given its age they are fairly minuscule compared to other cars it's age. 

The serious rust is in the bonnet, would recommend replacing with a new one. In the drivers side front guard repairable, in the tailgate repairable and some starting around the edges of the tub in the back all repairable (Tub is actually in great shape) On the passenger side on top of the tub and window sill (not near window) there is a patch which is also repairable. 

Otherwise the ute seems really rust free and dry.

All trim, grill etc is there and looks great.

It has had an older  re spray at some stage  in silver and looks nice but could do with a freshen up.

- Great tyres all round lots of tread
- Engine starts and runs well, as does box and diff.
-Reconditioned head 
-Carby has had a rebuild kit through it 
-New looking battery
-New hotdog in exhaust (pipe has some small holes will need repairing.
-New brake master cylinder (needs pressure bleeding)
-Radiator has been serviced, pressure tested
-etc etc.

The heater core will need replacing for RWC I got a quote of $380 from natrad. 

I would say getting the heater core and rust fixed would be about all she would need for a RWC 

Inspections welcomed and recommended before bidding, you are bidding to buy not view. Bank deposit or cash on pick up. 

I would recommend picking up with trailer, I am not a mechanic so I couldn't tell you exactly what it needs to be in a safe roadworthy condition so worth taking to one before driving on road.

Ute MUST be picked up by Sunday the 1st January AT THE LATEST.

Get this quality classic now, 10 years will double at least in value. I have started the price at the lower end of the red book value as eBay recommends although I feel this car is worth far more than that but she must go as I am moving interstate and my dad has nowhere to keep it. Happy bidding
