Offered is a 1971 Datsun 1200 Coupe Model# B110 with factory A12 engine and 4spd transmission. Not much is known about this Datsun so let the the photos do most of the talking. This 1200 was registered in California with blue plates at one time so very likely it was first sold in California. It has been off the road for at least 5yrs and may no longer be in the CA DMV system. I have no paperwork to offer with the Datsun other than a bill of sale.

It does look like someone poured a bucket of liquid ugly over the car but when inspected closely it is very complete, surprisingly straight and in solid condition. While I have not looked every inch of sheet metal over myself I have not spotted any obvious rust. The interior is an awful mess but largely intact and restorable.

Does the 1200 run? Nope. But it looks like someone could get it running with a little work.

Does it stop? Gotta get it running first to sort that out. But I'm guessing the answer is no.

In summary this project will require a lot of work but will be well worth the effort.  This one will need a trailer to get it home.

Speedometer reads 28,662. I'm sure it has been rolled over at least once. But looking at the car does the speedometer reading really matter? So the mileage shown in the auction is most likely not accurate.

UPDATE 8/24: Pulled the vintage shag carpeting out and power washed the 1200 this afternoon. This vintage iron looks a little better (cleaner anyhow) now. Unfortunately this exposed a rust hole in the drivers footwell and a few other spots. Nothing serious but I felt they should to be highlighted (see photos added).      

Important items to note:

Both rear alloy wheels and tires are not included in sale of this car. Front wheels and tires are included but the tires are shot and will not hold air. I am looking for wheels and tires but there a chance the winning bidder will need to provide their own.

There is no paperwork or title with the car. The car will be sold on a “Bill of Sale” only.

In reality this is a rolling shell for restoration. It is mostly complete, only the items shown in the photos are included. If you don’t see it it’s not included. Of course it does not run, stop or steer as a road going car would. It will need to be transported away (bring a trailer).

The car is located in Temecula, California at a remote location and cannot be accessed by large commercial auto transporters (Pickup’s with toy haulers are no problem). Local delivery within southern California can be arranged at additional expense.

Deposit required within 24hrs, paid in full within four days and picked up within nine days. Storage charges will be added after nine days at a rate of $25.00 per day. If the car is not picked up within a reasonable amount of time as determined by myself all monies paid are forfeited. This has been brought about by previous transactions that have dragged on far too long. Really I’m not a jerk, I promise (check my feedback).

If you have questions or would like photos of specific areas of the car ask and I will do my best to accommodate all requests. Just don’t wait till the last minute.
