A classic Datsun that beats the likes of a modern car
Practically nothing! A very reliable car (like every Datsun).
Had to replace minor wear and tear parts like water pump, brake shoes, and rubber lining around doors and trunk.
Body started rusting badly inside the trunk near the rear-left light cluster. Caused by water leaking into the trunk due to worn rubber linings. All rust is patched and treated now after a new coat of paint.
Very comfortable car, minimal engine and wind noise even at high speeds. Consumption around 26mpg.
Quiet engine, no problem starting on mornings, never overhauled although the overall distance has topped 280,000Km.
Still can cruise up to 160 Km/h. Straight-6 engine delivers 110hp.
Quite difficult to find spares, had to import rubber linings from Japan.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
