Mike and Ant drag a rare 1972 Datsun 510 2-door into the 21st century. The engine is in good order, but the bad paint job, gearbox and bodywork let it down.

Notes: Rare 2-door variant. Previously modified by seller.

A couple of my favorite things are the way Mike deals for the cars (both buying and selling) and watching the Detail of the way Ant works to fix the cars. A lot of personality and love of cars is expressed in this inspirational show.
