New to the world of 710 ownership. I just picked up this original, no rust, one owner, parked for 20 years, and running 710. The paint is in good shape, it looks bad in the photos but under the layer of dirt its in awesome shape. It was garaged until last April.
Here is a link to the gallery of when I bought it last Friday:
Heres what I plan to do:
-Replace auto with manual transmission (did this on my 240z, not impossible)
-upgrade suspension and brakes
-replace bumpers with the "smiley bumpers"
-repaint the car but only a fresh coat of white on the exterior
-replace the steering wheel with a nice vintage datsun 3 spoke. The rest of the interior is PERFECT!
-new shoes (Watanabe rims, bronze or charcoal gray with a polished rim/lip)
-replace the 710 empblems just behind the rear wheels with "VIOLET"
Suggestions are welcome on how to improve the look of the car, also I would appreciate if anyone wants to share their build with me.
I'll be staying away from the engine for a while with the exception of replacing the original carburetor with a new Weber that came with the car new in the box.
