Automatics have duel points. The second point set is a retard timing set. I forget which set you can disconnect for better performance.

Don't understand have you mean about putting the distributor cap on the "block". If you mean engine block I can't see how the engine would start without spark going to the plugs.

huh? what you mean?

The boneheads at Chevy didn't realize when they named the car that "No va" means "does not go" in Spanish.

They virtually killed any chance of the car being successful with spanish speaking people or in spanish speaking countries, like Mexico. Who's gonna buy a car with a name that announces that it doesn't go.

I find it funny that you have a Datsun that "No va" and you are trying to sell it to buy the original No va.

That you have a car for sale, and you've offered up a price for it, does not mean that it will sell for that price.

For it to be MY definition of purchaseable, it would need to fulfill MY expectations on that purchase.

A picture can speak volumes, and if you've been reading the posts here, then you know the pictures that will help determine whether it is a good candidate for restoration and not a boneyard refugee.

Just in case you don't know , take a picture of the area of the battery and below , the fender area to the rear of the front tires and infront of the doors and the area just in front of the rear tires. Open the hatch and shoot pics of the sill of the hatch , each end. Lift the carpet in the footwell and show the floor pan , both driver and passanger side . All these should be close up pictures showing detail. Pictures of the overall condition of the car , like a view of the front looking down the drivers side and the same looking down the passanger side. One more of the rear of the car showing both tail lights . Gary
