What do you guys think?

My aunt is looking to get rid of a Datsun 2000 pretty sure a 67. Pretty much everything's been redone. New seat covers, both hard and soft top, transmitions been fixed, drivetrain's been gone through, engine's been rebuilt. All I would really have to do to it is redo the brakes and do body work. I haven't actualy seen the car hopefuly I will and maybe get a picture. She's asking 500$ for it. I wouldn't be keeping the car. Do you guys thingk it'd be worth getting it, droping the money into it to fix it, then selling it? Do you think I'd make money? I'd love to hear your guys's 2 cents. Thanks.

You could make money off it if it doesn't need much bodywork, but it'd be a good keeper, too. They are pretty cool cars, and the forerunner of the 240Z. One of Japan's first traditional sports cars in the British form (including copying the traditional British SU carburator...).

Pretty cool cars. I can easily imagine one with an SR20DET powering it...

Personally I think there the best looking Datsun they ever made. It would be worth keeping. But you could make money off of it for sure.

Yeah took me forever to reply but ... basicaly I just need to prep it for paint and do the breaks, so alot of man hours, but not much actual money. Unless I get a damn expensive paint job... but aside from that not much body work.

I like that style of Datsun also. I would try to keep it if possible. If it is in the shape your describing, it's worth the $500.

Oh, and by the way, it's brakes not breaks. Unless there are pieces falling off.

Ive never advertised with them but if I had to sell a car

If you are really set on selling it, that may change after you drive it a while, then my suggestion would be....... well, there are a number of routes you could take.

- e-bay, or any of the hundreds of other electronic car lots out there
- find a Datsun owners group and advertise there
- put it out front of your house / other good location
- sell it to me for $600

I don't have any car selling suggestions that are really creative. I rarely sell a car after I have bought it.
