I did a bunch of work on a friend's old school Mitsu, and just started on building another one for another friend. So it's got me wanting another Mitsu for myself, and thought "why not a Starion?".

Knowing me, this could happen.
In 27 years of car ownership, I have owned roughly 80 cars, at least 40 of which were Datsuns, of which 27 were '68-72 510s. So I come by the name honestly.

Those look amazing. And that white one is perfect...
How hard/expensive are parts though?

Thanks. I kinda went crazy on that one. Big motor, lots of suspension/brake mods, redid all the interior, added A/C, cruise control, etc.
Honestly, not bad. I've built 27 of them so far, and working on #28 currently. So I have a lot of parts myself socked away, as well as lots of parts connections. But with their popularity rising, there are surprisingly a lot of new parts being made for them. You can get most of the sheet metal and trim pieces new now (you couldn't back then), and since most 510 owners upgrade everything, there's plenty out there to use.
Unfortunately, their rising popularity is causing prices to rise very quickly. These days just a decent runner will cost you over $5k, depending on where you live, and how much rust you're comfortable with.
