C'mon, it's allredy in your garage, isn't it ???
A wonderful project!
Uh, no not quite. The front left tire has sunk into the ground. I don't know if I will get lucky twice and find a second set of tires that hold air. It was last registered in 1975. Its been sitting in its current place since about then as well. Getting could be easy, or it won't happen at all. The guy who owns the barn (and is the former owner of my GTV) does not own the Sprint. His friend does, however the guy hasn't even looked at the car in 20 years. I might get the car for free, or the guy could want a fortune for it. I did take more pictures but they will have to wait awhile as I had to borrow a digital camera from a friend, who will email the rest to me when he gets back from Hawaii.
The bigger issue is having the $ to really do anything with it. There is a reason my race car is still in primer (with a real paint job with primer, not just grey primer) after 6 years. I don't really want to jump into another project before I get that one done. (But then I could by twice the paint and paint the Sprint the same body color as the Datsun. I'm thinking Aston Martin Titanium grey)
As far as the interior goes, the carpet might be ok, the seats aren't too bad, the headliner is gone, the dash is pretty good (could be great perhaps with a good cleaning) the door panels are pretty tired, as are the rear interior panels. The glove box is full of mouse nest (great more mummified mice
) The clutch and brake pedals move, the transmission shifts. Aside from the paint condition, the only really ugly part is the nose. Everything else is straight and there is no obvious major rust.
We will see how this unfolds. If I don't take it, the car will rust away where it sits.
