1968 Datsun 1000 Classic Deluxe 2 door Coupe 1.0 from Australia and New Zealand
I haven't done anything to the car as yet. It is drivable, but I keep it in the garage. It needs a good paint job, because the previous owner who had it for 28 years has done a GREAT BRUSH PAINTING. I do require panels and rubbers for it and hope one of you enthusiasts will help in some way. I am in Melbourne Victoria.
I was very surprised to see that these cars were also known as Datsun Sunny. I also own a 1981 Sunny and that has been converted to 2 liter sr20 det; it gives hard time to Holden and Ford V8s; it's very powerful.
Despite of the age of the car, the seats and plastic items in the car have cracked, all the rubber seals needs to be replaced only because this car was never garaged. The original wheels are still on the car, but it needs hub caps. The seats are worn out and need replacing.
This car is a bullet proof; that is why they are still around, and will be for a while.
It is very economical and small, a very light car, and handy to drive around the town.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
