HERE is my amazing 1977 Datsun 100A FII, produced by the company as a European export car between 1976 and 1978. I mean, come on. Wow. When did you last see one? Some time in the 80s maybe? These 70s Japanese motors were always praised for their seemingly bullet-proof engines but, let's be honest, back in the day they used to rot as you washed them and probably came with a five-year life span. If you were lucky! This incredible old girl is finished in bright red. Yes, BRIGHT RED. So if my photos make her look a touch reddy-brownish, then let me make this perfectly clear, She is red. Like a tomato is red. You will be buying a red car, not an orange or a red-brown car. She has covered a mere 48,000 miles and has spent the past few years in Ireland. She is a UK car, registered in August 1977 with the registration OCC 692S. I have seen to the NOVA form (notification of vehicle arrival) and as such I have the reference number. Her new owner will be able to reclaim the aforementioned British plate via DVLA. I have already contacted them. The vehicle has remained on the DVLA site (check for yourself) and you will get the original S plate back. Now to her condition. Well, in a nutshell, she is fantastic. I can see no rot or rust anywhere, and that applies to wings, door bottoms, arches......basically anywhere you care to mention. Clearly she has led a sheltered life. Look how well this cute fwd saloon sits. And as for driving, she is a total gem. She handles and feels like a two-year-old car and remember.....she is 41-years-old. Her underside is fantastic too. It looks to me as though the underseal - so neat and tidy - is the original from new. There are no signs of any welding anywhere and you can see all the floor pressings etc as clearly as if the car was just a year or so old. Upon close inspection I was able to see a glimpse of bright red paintwork underneath the odd area here and there. The Datsun's interior, boasting the oh so 70s period seats, is super too. The dash is un-marked with not even a hint of cracking plastic and the seats are excellent. The carpets are the originals and underneath them you are able to see the un-touched floor pans in bright red body colour. Her tyres are new and have not yet covered 50 miles! This is a unique opportunity to own a beautiful piece of 1970s Japanese engineering. She no longer requires either tax or test although I cannot imagine for one second that such a structurally superb example would have any problems passing an MoT. There's not too many of this model out there, and that makes comparisons a little tough, if not almost impossible. But, for less than the price of an exceedingly average and probably patched up Morris Minor, you can be the proud new owner of this Jap gem. Viewing is encouraged and I would suggest that the first to see will buy. A cliché perhaps. But in this case I believe it to be true. All my classic cars are treated as the equivalent of motoring antiques. This one, for example, is 41-years-old. They cannot be compared to the wife's six-month-old Chelsea tractor and they are bound to come with imperfections, quirks and bits and pieces that will need attention even if it is some time in the future. They do however come with oodles of charm, appeal and are there to be loved like a family pet. If you are new to the classic car scene, then please bear all this in mind. Most examples have clearly had work over the decades and I cannot predict how much or how little they will need in the future. That, I am afraid, is the nature of the beast in the world of classic cars. Motoring antiques is what they are. I love my Georgian dining table, but I can see all the scars and signs of previous woodworm. Had I wanted a brand new table, I would have gone to Oak Furniture Land. Well perhaps. Demand is outstripping supply these days and they don't make the old girls any more. So, make some allowances and drive away with a smile on your face. It goes with the territory, and therefore must be accepted, that they are always going to need on-going care, attention and repair. Don't tell me some way down the line that the full beam doesn't work or that you have discovered something I knew nothing about. They are bloody old. It happens. They come in and they go out. It seems as though I have become a "re-homer" of classic cars. I accept all major debit cards and a ten per cent deposit is required at the point of sale with the balance due within three days. I can also assist with delivery and so please ask for a quote. Thanks for reading, Martin. (07595-020282).
