1973 Datsun 120Y 1.2


Make way for Datsun!


New clutch.

New exhaust.

New starter motor.

All in 2007.

Some minor rust fixed in 2008 for WOF.

General Comments:

Dato 120Y Coupe.

Runs AMAZINGLY! Has a lotta go for a wee 1200. Took on an '87 GT Corolla and had it by a nose!

Never fails to start even on the coldest mornings.

It's a car that you've gotta make sure the driver and car are legal because it looks a little conspicuous (a grey panel, racing exhaust and some chrome mags) and the cops tend to like it.

Best of all, it only costs $40NZ to fill a tank! Sick wee car. Love it to pieces!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
