Rust Free ?

How can this be described as 'Rust Free' ?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Datsun-26...wAAOSwKQ9aTiNn

If that was your 5 year old car you would take it back to the dealer under bodywork warranty?

It is a decent shell but 'rust free'?

Replace the word rust for rot perhaps.

He'll claim it's just surface stuff ... so no 'rot' as such ... but that spare wheel well has seen better days.

You'll get no engine or transmission with this ... but wouldn't you know it, available separately ...

With the fuel and brake lines running where they are under the passenger floor like that - doesn’t that make it a 280? My car is a 74 260 and the lines are up in the tunnel.

must be an early vs late thing as mine runs under the drivers side floor like that rather than in the tranny tunnel, although mines 77 2+2 if that makes any difference

'Rust free' is probably accurate Rob. The term 'rust' can only properly be applied to iron (an iron oxide). The car may be riddled by corrosion though! Something that steel and many other metals suffer from! Maybe the seller is a Lawyer and knows how to play a game?

I thought he just meant that the rust came free with the car! What a bargain!
