Halogen headlamps, wrap-around indicators, full side trim, chrome wheel
centre caps, chrome door mirrors, plastic moulded bumpers, tinted glass,

seats, sculptured rear bucket seats, cigar lighter, quartz clock, three

Finished in sublime Datsun Metallic Brown (code 810), this incredibly rare
Datsun boasts a rich deep shine. The paintwork is in exceptional order
throughout and all the panels are original with no rust or corrosion
whatsoever. Scuffs to the side panels have been repaired so there is a
very slight difference in colour shade on close inspection. There are some
minor touch repairs to the paintwork on the bonnet and tailgate. These
imperfections do not detract from the overall wonderful appearance and this
car will stand proud at classic car shows. All factory tinted glass,
lights and badges remain in perfect condition, as have the bumpers which
have no damage or fading. A beautifully preserved example.
Luxury cloth upholstery with sculptured rear bucket seats are tastefully
trimmed in Caramel colour scheme which is in flawless unmarked condition.
The matching loop-pile carpeting follows suit with no discolouration,
although the pile has worn through in the drivers footwell. The factory
fresh dashboard and door cards with faux carpet trim are outstanding and
complete this time warp 1980's Datsun interior. All switches, gauges and
functions operate exactly as the manufacturer intended, including the
standard fit push button radio. The colour matched vinyl headlining is
tight, unmarked and perfect. The boot area is spotless but the gas struts
no longer hold the tailgate. A plush and inviting interior, worthy of the
Japanese renown for functional quality.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Powered by the ultra-reliable Type A14 four cylinder overhead valve engine
achieving 80bhp at 6000rpm. The engine is remarkably quiet and smooth and
delivers willing performance, thoroughly capable in today's modern driving
conditions. The 4-speed, all synchromesh gearbox is light, precise and
seamless in operation. Classic motoring made easy with Datsun
dependability installed as standard at the factory!
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Original pressed 13in steel wheels are shod in quality Falken 155/80 R13
tyres with excellent tread all round. The wheels are in excellent
condition with no damage, although a previous refurbishment is evident.
Power assisted disc brakes up front with self-adjusting rear drums provides
the car with ample and steady stopping power.
Registered new on 10th October 1980 by Datsun Main Dealer Harry Kitchener
Ltd of Bedford to first owner Mr G Purr. The original purchase invoice
shows a part exchange from Mr Purr of his Morris 1800HL Princess for the
trade in price of £1,800 against the purchase price of £4,177.36 for the
Datsun. A further three owners have cherished this rare and intriguing
survivor. A comprehensive history file accompanies the vehicle and
includes many previous MOT certificates supporting the low mileage, as well
as previous maintenance receipts and invoices. The original handbook and
1980 Datsun Sunny sales brochure complete the enthralling history file for
this delightful vehicle. Ultimately appealing to a 'dare to be different'
classic car enthusiast or a seasoned collector, truly special.

9.17 SECOND 13B DATSUN: TEAM 1200 RACING @ JAMBOREE
Jamboree saw plenty of Mazfix cars achieve personal best quarter mile
times. Troy Spelman ran fast and consistent in his Street 289 13B turbo Datsun 1200 ute, and managed to record a new
pb of 9.17 in his 2nd consecutive final with all runs over 140mph.
Unfortunately as Street 289 is a DYO (dial your own) bracket, he went below
his nominated time and broke out, thus taking out runner up once again.
This car is getting faster every
year so look out as he hits the strip in 2012 congrats to everybody
involved with this machine.

Datsun 120a F2 Cherry Coupe - Today
**PLEASE TURN YOUR VOLUME TO MAX** A couple of years ago I realised that my
first car, a Datsun 120a F2 Coupe, was the only car that I've ever really
liked or wanted - So after a 20-year gap I've managed to buy and then
restore another, matching many details to try and recreate that original
car. It's been a lot of work but has turned out rather well, with a vehicle
that is a vast improvement on my rusty original. This is a short film
showcasing the car as it is today - one of only a few still left running in
the country (UK).
