Startup of Datsun 1200 Buggy
A 73' Datsun 1200 stationwagon rusted out wrecked road car, ripped apart
and rebuilt as this, it has a lightweight tube/galv sheet metal body, with
original diff, suspension and steering components as well as brakes, engine
and even the steering wheel. It sure is fun to drive but still quite tricky
and tail happy because of its SWB layout, pretty quick too, hellova lot faster than the original car. Its
great on gravel roads and in paddocks, if you wana go past 50mph you'd want
to know what your doing because keeping it straight at those speeds is a
challenge, that's what makes it so adrenaline pumping and it's bloody good
fun. This engine has been thrashed and beaten most of its life. Previous
owners (when the engine was in the car) apparently went flat-out up the
road in 1st gear to try and blow it up but failed. These little Japanese
engines, trully are legendary. I re-wired it up a few years ago (when I was
12) and it was built about 30-35years ago and never misses a beat, runs on
stale fuel and starts every time with no choke, doesn't smoke at all except
a bit of blue smoke from worn valve guide seals on start up.
