Known for its reliability, the Datsun 521 was once a familiar sight on South African roads. But because they were such hard working vehicles, very few remain, and these days they are popular with restorers or enthusiasts looking for a project vehicle.

This 1972 Datsun 521 1500 has rust that will need attending to (see photos), but mechanically is solid. Its current owner claims that the engine has never been opened.
