Car is more or less original... looks like no work ever done to it besides floor carpet.

Always wondered what happened with this Commodore, I think there were two in the country originally. Do you know what is the story with this one?


I currently have this in my possession... aquired it some months ago from a friend who aquired it from the deceased owner's widow.
Not sure of the direction I plan to go in. Car was driving two years ago, the Carburetor is seized so I'm working on that at the moment so I can start it up. The suspension rubbers are all dry rotted, needs a bonnet and some bodywork, but more or less the car has everything.

That's great news, I would love to see that car back on the road again! When you have time, hope you can post more pictures, especially of the interior and engine. Good luck with that great car!

Years ago the Japanese Embassy had two Datsun/Nissan 300Cs, one black and one white, anyone knows what happened to them? Also, I remember seeing a Nissan President on the roads years ago, would love to know what became of those rides!
