Wheeler Dealers - Datsun 510

I watched this episode tonight off my TiVo list and really enjoyed it. This 1972 Datsun 510 really is a lovely car and Ant did a fantastic job with it. He sprayed it all himself too and what a glorious colour. Fitted a 5 speed gearbox and other mods too. What a beautiful motor ! https://farm2.static...
