Default datsun 1200 aka nissan sunny

This 1972 Datsun 1200 (Model B 110) is for sale. She belongs to the owner of the PUC (Pollution Under Control) booth where I get my vehicles checked. This person is the second owner, although the car is still registered in the name of the first (an elderly person who would regularly be seen driving her till a couple of years back), who is also the original importer, I think. Documents are absolutely valid, with a smart card and fitness done till 2010 or 11. The original owner also has some NOS spares with him that he'll sell at a price, separately, I believe.

The present owner is really not an old car buff, maybe he just got swayed by my vehicles (so should I feel guilty?), and after buying her realised it wasn't his scene. Moreover, he's also got an used Palio recently, so he has absolutely no use for the Datsun. However, he's very keen that she goes to an enthusiast, so that she's taken care of. The scrap dealers are offering him 25K he says (and I believe him, because that's what the rates are). He wants 35K, which too is rather reasonable. The car is really original (despite a top coat of paint) as the pics show, is in running condition (although the engine is weak, being quite similar to the 118NEs shouldn't be too much of a challenge to put right), the interiors are still original, the old stickers on the pillars and engine bay also are there. I don't have parking space (infact got to offload a couple of mine also soon, neighbours are giving me increasingly bad vibes!), otherwise I wouldn't have fought the temptation. I've been seeing this car for the last 15 years and would like her to survive.

The seller is a simple soul, although his haryanvi intonations could give a different first impression. So, please don't hassle him unnecessarily with 'smart' buyer's talk. I don't know whether to post his mobile number here, or give it to interested people who PM me. I have absolutely no commercial interest in the whole thing, other than to, a) save the car and b) help the seller, because he's in unfamiliar territory with such a car. Readers, please advise about divulging his cell number here. I'll do so in a following post if that's the general view.

So much for plugging it, here're the photographs:

datsun 1200 also known as nissan sunny. think its engine was used on premier padmini s1 bu / 118ne.

He was asking a rediculous price for the buick. Same car that was rotting away in Nepeansea road.

speedy 944 must be the red LHD convertible in Mumbai? I believe she has been burnt on one rear fender near the fuel filler otherwise she was hot when imported a few year ago. Also the ragtop has some parts missing.

This was in the silver or grey colour. She faces her rear to the road and is parked on the footpath. It could be the same car you talk off that has been repainted but we cannot be sure till we see it up close. This place is in the lane of the choti Dargah at mahim.
