If the ad is true, the seller spent over $13,000.00 restoring this car. He says the wheels alone are worth $1500.00 He's now trying to sell it for $2000.00.
Me? I'd sell the wheels for $1000.00, put another $1500.00 into it to make it right, and, for $2500.00, I'd have a pretty nice daily driver.

1981 Datsun 510 - This was known as the Stanza in most of the world. In North America, Datsun / Nissan decided to call it the 510, to capitalize on the original 510, which was an impressive car with a great reputation.
The original 510 was pretty close to being a true sports sedan. It could easily hang with the BMW 1600. This version of the 510 was a low-priced family car. It was meant to compete with the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry, which it did.
There are very few of these left in North America. They were cars that were used up and thrown away.
This one appears to be in nice condition and looks like it just had its oil changed. (Why leave that stuff in the picture???)
