My Datsun 120Y Pick Up, also known as the Datsun 1200 Bakkie or Ute. This is a South African car, manufactured in 1976 and first registered in January 1977.
The car has been well used and equally loved- I bought it to use when I was in South Africa and bought it from a family who have passed it down a few times.
The car is now 43 years old and in good overall condition with detailed photos provided. Some signs of the cars age are apparent and there is some fading to the paint in parts with some bits which need to be touched up- all detailed in the photos. The car starts and drives and it is on the road and in use. It goes well but with attention could go better. Initially I bought it to move some things around but then brought it home with the idea of taking some of the parts off it, including the front disc brakes, gearbox and 1.2 litre engine to put into my Datsun 1000. I decided against that because of time but also as this is a decent car which could be really nice.
The interior was pretty poor when I got it so I redid this back in February and it is now very good. Headliner is original and clean.
Under the car it is solid and there are signs of undersealing over the years. The jobs needing attention are listed below and are not exhaustive and don't deter from being able to drive the truck.
Points needing attention:
* 3cm patch in the bed which needs welding
* New handbrake cable required
* Paint needs touch up
* Surface rust from coolant running in engine bay
* Front left indicator cracked
* Speedometer needle fallen off
I have a couple of bits which could come with the car, including accelerator pedal, wing mirrors and some engine parts.
Great original bits still on this car including the carpet and mat, interior light, steering wheel, truck bed where you can see the original body colour revealing itself (these beds were mostly painted over in durable matt black paint to protect the body). While tired, the wheels are also original!
All paperwork in hand.
Questions very much welcome, drop me a line with your phone number and I will call you to talk the car through.
