Oh dear, I’ve done it again… I’ve got another car! Not content with owning 14 Datsuns, I felt the urge to go buy an E10 Cherry 4 door. Well… It was very cheap! It has more than it’s fair share of dents but very little rust….
Most significant was some frontal damage which I’m in the process of repairing. This entailed fitting a new front panel and valance as well as a new wing and bonnet. Once this is done it should be completely solid again, although ling term it will need a respray and a general tidy up. Not bad for £50 though!
For some of the people who travelled in this post face-lift 130 Cedric wagon, it was most likely the last Datsun they ever travelled in. That’s because this one is a Norwegian funeral car. This unusual application for a Cedric was recently discovered by a member of the Datsun PMC Register of Norway. Being a funeral car, I would imagine thats it’s not only been very well looked after but has had quite and easy life so it should still be in tip top condition. What a great find!
Just how many rare Datsuns can one man find? Svein-Erik has acquired yet another desirable Datsun, this time a 1968 520 wagon. Technically this is a van rather than a wagon due to it having two doors rather than four. It looks to be in fair condition and I can’t wait to get a close look at it later this year when I’ll be attending the annual Datsun / PMC register show in Vikersund, Norway.
