1978 Datsun 1200 1.2


Tough, but not for me


Acquired in payment of a debt. Recently (crappy) painted before acquiring it, no door seals, paint is already falling apart.

Electric problem (poor wiring), keeps blowing fuses and coils.

Rain comes in through floor (corroded).

Gauges are not working.

Replaced auxiliary brake pumps.

Replace auxiliary clutch pump.

General Comments:

I accepted the car with the intention of using it as a daily commuter, but whatever I do, I can only use it once or twice, and then it goes bad again.

I usually bring my wife with me, and she seems really uncomfortable in the vehicle, which makes me feel bad too, so I have decided to sell it. I just hope I get at least the original price back.

Overall it's a good car. Being a classic, you get people's attention everywhere, which is no longer funny when you're stranded.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
