This 1969 Datsun 510 station wagon was acquired out of Washington by the seller in early 2020 and has been relocated to Georgia. The car was refinished in yellow under previous ownership, and the seller installed black fixed-back OMP bucket seats and re-covered the rear bench in black. Other features include 15″ Konig wheels, front disc brakes, a wooden roof rack, and wood trim in the rear cargo area. Under current ownership, the 1.6-liter inline-four was rebuilt, a 280ZX-sourced five-speed manual transmission was installed, and the radiator was replaced along with ignition components, the front brakes, and front suspension parts. This modified 510 is now offered with its removed bumpers and spare parts as well as the seller’s records, a 510 service manual, and a clean Georgia title in the seller’s name.
The car was delivered new in Houston Yellow (817) and has been refinished. Features include a wood-slat roof rack as well as fender-mounted mirrors and Hella headlights. The bumpers have been removed, and a twin-tipped exhaust terminates past the rear. The seller notes flaws in the paintwork and stone chips are present on the nose.
Polished 15″ Konig wheels are mounted with Toyo Extensa HP tires that measure 195/45 and show 2020 date codes. Disc brakes are utilized up front, with finned drums in the rear. The seller states that the suspension has been modified with 280ZX front coilovers and 3″ lowering blocks in the rear, and work in 2021 included replacing the front brake calipers, pads, rotors, and hoses as well as the rear wheel cylinders, parking-brake cable, tie-rod assemblies, suspension bushings, drag link, ball joints, and idler arm.
The interior features fixed-back OMP bucket seats with black upholstery and gray corduroy inserts, and the rear bench has been re-covered. The dash pad and door panels also have been replaced, and a Honda Civic wiper motor was installed along with a console. The transmission tunnel has been modified to accommodate a relocated shifter, and the radio is missing. The child’s seat in the rear is not included.
A three-spoke steering wheel sits ahead of instrumentation that includes a horizontal 120-mph speedometer and replacement gauges to monitor fuel level and water temperature. The five-digit odometer shows 3k miles, and true mileage is unknown. The speedometer cable has been replaced, and the seller notes that the fuel gauge is inaccurate.
Wood flooring has been constructed for the rear cargo area, which is otherwise trimmed in black with exposed wheel wells. The seller notes that one of the torsion bars to hold up the hatch has broken and was removed.
The L16 1.6-liter is equipped with a single carburetor and was rebuilt in February 2022 after the radiator failed in 2021. The engine bay has since been refinished and an aluminum radiator was installed along with a rebuilt distributor, a GM ignition controller, and gas shocks for the hood. A $9,331 invoice from Asian Automotive of Savannah, Georgia, listing the work performed is shown in the gallery.
Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission sourced from a 280ZX, which was installed in February 2022. A shortened driveshaft has been utilized, and the U-bolts and rear pinion seal have been replaced. Additional photos of the underside are presented in the gallery below.
A number of spare parts will accompany the car including the removed bumpers, hardware, trim pieces, and touch-up paint.
Recent receipts are included in the sale, some of which are provided in the gallery below.
